Rivers Govt Declares Support for Holding LG Election May 23rd
The Rivers State Government has declared its support for the conduct of Local Government Council elections in 22 out of 23 local government areas of the state come May 23.

A statement issued by the State Commissioner of Information and Communication, Ibim Semenitari said the timing of the elections meets with the provisions of Rivers State Local Government and Electoral Commission Law.

They said the plan and election was also consistent with Governor Chibuike Amaechi’s declaration that local government elections would hold after the 2015 general elections.

Semenitari said it would be mischievous for anyone to insinuate that the state government pressured the state electoral commission to choose the time of the election.

The state government warned those threatening to unleash violence on innocent Rivers people following the council election that state and local governments as well as internatonal bodied are watching.
