Governor Amaechi Moves To Stop PDP From Evaluating His Performance

The Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi has gone to court to challenge plans by the Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers State to commence a performance evaluation of political office holders in the state elected on the platform of the party.

Parties in the originating summons filed by Governor Amaechi include Senator Magnus Abe and the Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly Otelemaba Dan Amakri as well as the Chairman of Port Harcourt Local Government Council.

Emenike Ebete legal representative to Governor Amaechi said the PDP lacks the constitutional power to carry out an oversight function on democratically elected public officers.

Justice Godspower Aguma of the Port Harcourt High Court fixed the fourth of July 2013 to hear the motion for interlocutory injunction by governor Amaechi.
