The Bamangar Tukur’s faction of the  Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has accused the Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, of manipulating the media and distorting facts with regards to Thursday’s report of police blockade of the governor’s route to the state house.

The statement signed by Olisah Metuh, PDP’s spokesperson(Tukur’s faction) accused Rotimi Amaechi of misleading Nigerians and creating an impression that he was barred by the Police and the Federal Government from entering the Rivers State Government House, Port Harcourt.

“This distortion of facts is totally unacceptable and unbefitting of a state governor. It is indeed condemnable that Governor Amaechi has continued to distort facts and interfere in the lawful activities of the police and security operatives ensuring law and order in Rivers State only to manipulate the media and portray himself as the victim,” the statement said.

It said Mr. Amaechi was fully aware that based on the ruling of the courts, the police had sealed off a secretariat illegally opened by some individuals under the name, flag and colour of the PDP; consequently, the route leading to the structure was also closed.
The PDP said the governor could not feign ignorance of the fact that the route was closed as he must have been fully informed by his security details.

“Governor Amaechi must understand that the Nigeria Police is a sacred institution which should not in anyway be dragged into politics. In the same vein, he must understand that facts are sacred and should not be distorted under any guise,” the statement said.
