2023: Rivers Government Cancels Approval For PDP Presidential Rally In Stadium

The Rivers State Government has revoked the earlier approval it gave the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, to use the state-owned Adokiye Ameisimaka Stadium for his rally slated for 11th February 2023.

A letter to the campaign council claimed security could not be guaranteed at the stadium as the Atiku PCC was working with a faction of the APC loyal to Tonye Cole and former Rivers Governor Rotimi Amaechi.

However, some Atiku supporters already believe it is a carryover of the rift between Atiku and Rivers State’s Governor Nyesom Wike, a fellow PDP chieftain who has refused to join the presidential campaign train with the aggrieved G5 group of governors.
