As the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State prepares to hold its Local Government Area Congress across the 23 LGAs in the State, today the State Chairman of the party, Bro. Felix Obuah has charged members of the party especially delegates to the congress to conduct themselves in a peaceful, orderly and mature manner to ensure the success of the exercise.
Bro. Obuah in a statement reminded all delegates that as a party where internal democracy holds sway, they should endeavour to replicate the success of last Saturday, March 14, Ward Congress across the State.
The State PDP boss said it is only by so doing that the party would retain the confidence reposed in it as the only true political party of the people of Rivers State.
Meanwhile, new names of returning/electoral officers for the Wednesday, March 18, Local Government Congress across the State has been released.
Bro. Obuah said this list supersedes earlier list released and directed all the returning/electoral officers to report at the State Party Secretariat along Aba Road, Port Harcourt at 8 O’clock in the morning, Wednesday, March 18, for further directives.

Bode George Urges FG To Relax Lagos Lockdown
A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George has urged federal government to relax the lockdown it imposed on Lagos State as a result of COVID- 19 pandemic.
George, who made the call in a statement in Lagos, yesterday said the lockdown imposed since March 29 was adversely affecting livelihoods and bringing up security challenges.
He said though government intended to curb the spread of the virus with the lockdown, the directive had left many Nigerians hungry at home without palliatives.
The PDP chieftain noted that there must be a balance between curbing the spread of the virus and protecting livelihoods and asked the government to relax the lockdown while putting safety measures in place.
“Everywhere in Lagos is now locked down. The markets, banking halls, the local grocery shops, the supermarkets, the transportation services are all halted, frozen by the federal government directives since March 29.
“On the surface level, the federal government’s position is to ensure safety, prevent communal spread of the virus and banish this scourge from our shores.
“Lagosians have been staying at home for about a month now. In a largely informal economy where most of our people depend on daily wages, the burden of lack of income is devastating.
“There is a natural growing anger in Lagos as the most vulnerable are ravaged with hunger,” George said.
