Accord vows to stop Wike from sealing off party secretariat
Accord party in Rivers State has said it will use all legitimate means to protect the rights of the party and its candidates against the interference of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Reacting to a Discontinuation Notice on Accord secretariat served by the Rivers Ministry of Planning and Urban Development on November 23 for allegedly flouting Paragraph 5 of Executive Order 22, the Director, Media and Communication, Dumo Lulu-Briggs Governorship Campaign Council, Sotonye Ijuye-Dagogo, said the party would not succumb to bully in any manner.
Ijuye-Dagogo accused the PDP of undemocratic means to retain political power in the state, saying: “Rivers Accord has decided to use all legitimate means to protect the rights of the party, its candidates and members.
“Accord has come to stay in Rivers State and cannot be bullied in any manner.
“The Rivers Accord, therefore, calls on all members to ignore the threats of the PDP, keep calm and go about the campaigns without fear of intimidation.”
