Rivers - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has raised concern at reports of looting of Rivers State resources by the outgoing administration of Rotimi Amaechi.
It is alleged the All Progressives Congress politician’s immediate family is involved.
PDP thus commended officers of the Rivers State Command of the Nigerian Police, who intercepted a truck allegedly carrying looted items from the Government House, Port Harcourt on Sunday.

“The PDP describes this looting galore by Governor Amaechi and family members as capable of wrecking the State and the people, calling on the security agencies and the people to be proactive and rise against this unholy act before it gets out of hand,” Jerry Needam, Spokesperson of Felix Obuah, the PDP Rivers State Chairman, said.
“The PDP calls on Governor Amaechi, his Wife (Judith) and all officials of the out-going APC government to search their conscience, and desist from running the State aground before leaving office, saying its eyes are open on checkmating their activities until the final whistle is blown on May 29, 2015, when a new government will certainly be formed in the State.”
He said PDP considered its position was vindicated with the latest seizure of a vehicle belonging to a Mr Chant, which was used in escorting another carrying several items from the Rivers State Government House.
Items looted and moved out, allegedly under the instruction of Amaechi, included sums of money, domestic utensils, sound-proof generators, computers, fridges, foreign furniture, electrical and electronic gadgets.
Comment could not be obtained from the APC.
