Finebone noted the Executive Order prohibits the posting of bills or posters or any other material in unauthorised places.

He said Governor Wike condemned the incessant defacement of expensive public properties by parties in the state through posting of handbills, banners, posters and others.

The Executive Order 22, which would become effective from from Friday, also states: “Any political party or association or body of persons however called or described that wishes to use any premises, building or structure situate in a residential area in any urban area of Rivers State as campaign office must obtain permission from the Rivers State Commissioner for Urban and Physical Planning.”
