The Rivers state police command has announced that it is ready to provide security for everyone at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Convention.

The party has been at loggerheads following failed talks between the Ahmed Makarfi and Ali Modu Sheriff.

The PDP convention, which is slated to hold today, Wednesday, August 17, 2016, was suspended by an order issued by Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High court in Abuja.

The Lagos Sate Chapter of the party also described the court order as a "black market" ruling.

Speaking on the security arrangements for the convention, the Rivers state police Public Relations Officer, Nnamdi Omoni, said “The command is prepared for the convention; necessary deployments have been carried out and we are prepared for the convention.

“ 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.”
