Amaechi fails to deliver Rivers, declares curfew in retaliation

Due to the fact that the All Progressives Congress, APC, lost out in the Presidential and National Assembly elections in Rivers State, the Governor of the State, Governor Rotimi Amaechi, has declared a dusk-to-dawn curfew in Port Harcourt, the State capital, hours after the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, announced the results of both polls.

In a terse statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, George Feyi, the Governor said the curfew will hold from 7p.m. to 6a.m.

“The curfew will continue till further notice,” a part of the statement said.

Amaechi had promised to deliver the votes of Rivers state for the APC presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, but a while into the elections, discovered that it was not possible and decided to disrupt the elections with protests and demonstrations from APC supporters.
