The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has cautioned the immediate past Rivers State Local Government Chairmen whose tenure has expired against any conduct capable of disrupting the peace in the State.

National Publicity Secretary of the party, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, issued the words of caution in a statement in Abuja, on Wednesday.

According to him, the PDP notes that the three-year tenure in office of the former Local Government Executive Councils in the state has expired.

This, he explained, was due to the effluxion of time under the relevant State Law establishing the Rivers State Local Government Council Administration.

Ologunagba said, “The PDP therefore counsels the former Rivers State Local Government Council Chairmen to desist from any action that may constitute disruption in Local Government administration in the State.

“The Party calls on the people of Rivers State to remain calm, law-abiding and continue to work together for the continued stability, peace and delivery of democracy dividends in Rivers State.”

Recall there were reports of skirmishes between supporters of the former LG executives loyal to the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Cheif Nyesom Wike and those loyal to Governor Similaye Fubara.
