Port Harcourt LGA Stakeholders Expresses Fear Of Economic Damage Over Political Crisis

United and appointed office holders as well as stakeholders in Port Harcourt Local Government Area have expressed fears that the current political crisis may damage economic activities in the area.
The stakeholders in a communiqué at the end of a meeting in Port Harcourt also expressed concerns over renewed state of insecurity in the state.

The Mayor of Port Harcourt, Chimbiko Akarolo, read the communiqué and called for the redeployment of Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Mbu Joseph Mbu,.
“We condemn in very strong terms the unwarranted utterances by the state commissioner of Police, Mr Mbu Joseph Mbu, which in our view is an assault not only to the exalted office of the governor, the chief security officer of the state, but also to the peace and generality of the peace and loving people in Rivers state.
“Consequently, we join other well meaning citizens of Rivers state to demand his immediate redeployment. We call on peace and loving youths of Port Harcourt and Rivers state in general to remain calm.”
The stakeholders in Port Harcourt in the communiqué described the perceived political rift between President Goodluck Jonathan and Govenor Amaechi as the handwork of some desperate politicians.

“We are loyal to the President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan (GCFR). That we pledge our unflagging support and loyalty to our dear brother and son, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi (CON), the Executive Governor of Rivers state and Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum.
“That the imaginary faceoff between the president and our dear governor is a creation of few Abuja based Rivers politicians.”
