We are ready for PDP convention —Police

THE Rivers State police command said on Tuesday that it had made adequate security arrangements for the National Convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Public Relations Officer of the command, Mr Nnamdi Omoni, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Port Harcourt, the state capital, that the command had carried out necessary deployments for the convention.

“The command is prepared for the convention, as necessary deployments have been carried out,” he said.

Omoni said the command had made arrangements to protect lives and property in the state while the convention was on.

“Remember that there are other Nigerians living in the state.

“The command is aware of this fact and will provide security for all, including those attending the convention and others living in the state,” he said.

The spokesman, however, declined to disclose the number of personnel deployed for the convention.

Meanwhile, Sharks Stadium, Port Harcourt, venue of the convention, is now wearing a new look.

Security, it was gathered to also be tight, as policemen and other security officials were seen screening people entering the stadium when the NAN visited the stadium.

Some officials of the PDP were also seen at the venue inspecting final preparations by various committees charged with organising the convention.
