The Rivers State PDP presidential campaign council stated that the action was based on the orders of the Rivers State government.
The office which is located at the Port Harcourt GRA was sealed off in the early hours of Friday.
Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike had a few weeks ago signed Executive Order 22 which prohibits the citing of political parties’ campaign offices in residential areas without government’s approval.
But the media team of the PDP PCC, Rivers State, said it had applied for the approval from the state government but has not received any feedback for several weeks.

The group, therefore, condemned the “act because it rubs off on our fundamental right to free expression of interest.”
It also said: “This egregious move by the Rivers State Government, seen in the prism of politics, tends to militarise our democracy and renders our dear state politically recessive when juxtaposed with other states in the country.”
