Apparently worried by continuous absence of Governor Rotimi Amaechi from the state, Peoples Democratic Party, Rivers State, has called on the governor to take his responsibilities seriously by returning to the state to attend to pressing demands.
The party alleged that the governor’s pursuit of his political ambition had kept him from attending to legitimate responsibilities in the state, noting that it was compelled to call the governor’s attention back on track before governance, peace and order, which are on the verge of crumple, completely break down.
In a release issued in Port Harcourt by Jerry Needam, Special Adviser on Media to the State Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah alleged that development in the state had dropped as contractors have withdrawn from their various construction sites.
“Governor Amaechi’s style of governance has brought untold hardship on the people as well as debased state’s infrastructures.
“The state of roads in the state is deteriorating, there is poor facility maintenance culture by government functionaries because of absence of monitoring and supervision, there is palpable fear of the unknown, most of the areas that were habitable have been taken over by flood, and transport becoming hectic. This is unacceptable.
“We feel disappointed by this style of leadership and call on Governor Amaechi to have a rethink and focus on issues that truly legitimize his position as the chief servant of the people.
“This was not the type of leadership we envisaged and it is expected that Governor Amaechi throws in the towel if he can no longer carry on his responsibilities as the Governor of the state”, the party said.
