Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in
Rivers State has conferred President Muhammadu Buhari with the honorary son of
the Niger Delta status for his commitment to the region.
The party, coinciding with the first year anniversary of the
Buhari administration cited the inclusion of the Calabar– Lagos Rail Line and
Calabar – Itu Road in the 2016 budget, as well as the impending Ogoni clean-up
exercise to justify its position that Buhari qualified to be regarded as a
Niger Delta son.
“These laudable projects being undertaken by the Buhari
administration in its first year in office speak volumes about his desire to
speedily develop our region,” said Davies Ikanya, APC Rivers chairman.

“This is truly remarkable as the administration is doing
this despite the unacceptable acts of some of our youths who have resorted to
sabotaging the economic fortunes of our nation by blowing up oil facilities at
an alarming rate.”
Rivers APC meanwhile congratulated Buhari’s cabinet members
for their performance in the their few months in office.
The party reserved more praise for former governor, Rotimi
“He has proved himself as one of the pillars of this
administration by his unflinching commitment towards the actualisation of the
principles, goals and vision of President Buhari towards building a new Nigeria
with its foundation on the rule of law – a virile, focussed and corrupt free
Nigeria that we all can be proud of,” Ikanya said.
