Amaechi's ministerial nomination excites APC Rivers

07 October 2015, 13:11

Rivers - The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has expressed excitement at President Muhammadu Buhari's nomination of the immediate past governor of the state, Rotimi Amaechi, as a Minister.

Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, State Party Chairman, said the nomination was a fitting independence anniversary gift by the Nigerian leader to Rivers State and its people.

It poked fun at the rival People’s Democratic Party, which was reportedly against the nomination after Governor Nyesom Wike instituted a probe, accusing the ex-governor of maladministration.

“With the listing of Amaechi as a ministerial nominee despite all the manipulations, witch-hunting and other evil plots by Nyesom Wike and his cohorts, we are elated that, once more, good has prevailed over evil, God over devil, Amaechi over wicked Wike, light over darkness and patriotism over nepotism,” said Ikanya.

He said Buhari had not only given the state the best 55th independence anniversary gift but had also liberated Rivers State from the shackles of a despotic and demonic clique that thought that by propaganda that they could rewrite the history of Rivers State and run down a man whose love for the development and emancipation of Rivers State and Nigeria was “infectious.”

“President Buhari has proven that he is not only a man of honour, integrity and principle but also a man who cherishes and promotes friendship and patriotism. We are proud that Buhari did not allow the propaganda by Wike and his cohorts to sway him from the fact that Amaechi is a man that he can trust any day and anytime.”

Ikanya said assured Buhari that Amaechi would not only bring honour to his administration but would also work very hard to make his administration one of the best ever in the annals of Nigeria’s history.

“As we congratulate Amaechi, we urge him to be steadfast in his drive for a better Nigeria by giving out his best as the failure of the Buhari administration will be blamed on him in view of the risks and sacrifices he made in bringing the APC government to birth.”
