13,000 Teachers Stadium Gathering: You’ve Ulterior Motive PDP Tells Amaechi

The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, says the Wednesday gathering of teaching applicants at the Port Harcourt Liberation Stadium for the purported collection of employment letters was a ploy by the Amaechi led government to use the frustrated youths as protesters on the streets of Port Harcourt against President Goodluck Jonathan.

 The party in a statement issued and signed by the Special Adviser on Media to the State Chairman, Jerry Needam regrets that Gov Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi is cashing in on the misfortune of hundreds of thousands unemployed youths in the state to play politics.

 The party notes that the applicants have long been interviewed, screened and employment letters given for the long vaulted 13,000 teaching jobs by Gov Amaechi and wonders why the helpless applicants were asked to again gather at the Liberation Stadium, Port Harcourt if not for a sinister motive.

 Drawing from intelligence reports available to it, the party maintains that the only reason for the unnecessary gathering of the job hopefuls was to use them as tools to whip up sentiments against President Goodluck Jonathan in sympathy with Gov Amaechi in the feud between them and, or political crisis he is persistently and unrepentantly fueling and which is threatening the prevailing fragile peace in the state.

 While providing employment to our numerous qualified but unemployed youths whether for teaching in schools or elsewhere is a welcome development moreso, in the light of huge resources accruing to the state,  the PDP believes the recruitment could be done without subjecting these applicants to further sufferings and danger by mobilizing them for all across the state to gather at the Liberation Stadium unattended to.

 The party reasons that the best method to reach or communicate with the prospective employees by the relevant authorities is online transmission through the ICT which is easier, cheaper and hitch-free for both parties, stressing that anything less is suspect, and poses danger and challenge to the law enforcement agents.

 The PDP commends the Police for rising to challenges of insecurity in the state created by Governor Amaechi’s over ambition.
