He lambasted the police and the Rivers State Government for shutting down the three facilities in a statement delivered through his chief of staff, Chizi Enyi.
The move is illegal, according to Darlington Nwauju, the state APC’s interim spokesperson after security personnel had earlier sealed two hotels and a petrol station in Port Harcourt.
Dr. Chinyere Igwe’s Mega Tools filling station, Jones Ogbonda’s Priscy bar in the Elekahia area, and Ikechi Chinda’s Preray hotel on Eagle Island are among the buildings that have been sealed.
Meanwhile, Hon. Chinyere Igwe, a former Rivers federal lawmaker, has also responded to the closure of his fuel station “MEGA TOOLS” by security personnel from the Rivers State Government House.
In a conversation with journalists in Port Harcourt, Chinyere said that the incident was politically driven since he backs PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar.
He questioned why the state government shut down the station because he does not deal in “Kpofire,” illegal petroleum products.
Additionally, he said that the state government would not have taken this action if he had been a member of the All Progressives Congress because they would have resisted it.
“Sealing off my filling station is politically motivated, because I am supporting Atiku Abubakar. I don’t deal on kpofire. I dont know why he asked them to seal my filling station. If I am an APC member, he cant try it, he knows they will resist him,” he said.
