The Executive Chairman of Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State, Dr. Samuel Nwanosike, JP, has called for strict compliance to the Executive Order 21 recently signed by the Executive Governor of the State, Barr. Nyesom Ezenwo, directing all political parties and candidates wishing to use the facilities of public schools for political activities to obtain permission from the State Ministry of Education two weeks prior to the date of the event.
Dr. Nwanosike, while issuing the directive, charged all traditional rulers and security agents to ensure that political parties and candidates making use of public schools facilities within their jurisdictions obtain permission from the State Ministry of Education as mandated by the Executive Order 21.
The Chairman of Ikwerre LGA stated that the enforcement is with immediate effect and that the full weight of the law would fall on those who are culpable.
He stressed that the Rivers State Executive Order 21 is not intended to witch-hunt anyone political party or individual, but aimed at securing public schools facilities and maintenance of peace and tranquility in the eventuality of crash of activities.
