The Rivers state government has sealed a campaign office belonging to the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.
Before the campaign office was sealed, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has been at loggerheads with Atiku Abubakar over the national chairman of the opposition party, Iyorchia Ayu’s stay in office despite his calls for his removal.
Wike’s spokesperson, Kelvin Ebiri told newsmen on Friday, December 23, that they obtained a court order to seal the campaign office which violated an executive order that prohibits the location of campaign offices in residential areas.
“The Rivers state government approached a court which ordered that the place should be sealed up.
“The Rivers state executive order 22 prohibits the location of a political campaign office in a residential area. It was the court that ordered the place to be sealed up.”
