The University of Port Harcourt administration has stated that it will not consider releasing the university’s premises to Atiku’s Presidential Campaign Council for its mega rally in Rivers State.
The administration stated that it has not authorized the use of any part of the school environment for political party activities, and that the online publication announcing such a development is false and baseless.
Dr Sam Kpenu, the university’s Public Relations Officer, urged the public to disregard such publication, warning the perpetrators of the falsehood to stop immediately.
Kpenu said: “The Management wishes to state as follows: That Management has not authorized any political campaign rally at the University.
“That the University is not a political ground for political campaigns. And that it is not contemplating releasing its facility to the Atiku Campaign Council.
The Public is, therefore, called upon to discountenance this deliberate falsehood aimed at tarnishing the towering reputation of the University as it is simply a figment of the imagination of the author.”
He also stated that the development has been officially reported to law enforcement agencies for appropriate action.
