- Describes PDP’s call for his resignation as misplaced
The All Progressives Congress APC, Rivers State chapter has described the reappointment of Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi as the Director General, Presidential Campaign Council of President Muhammadu Buhari as not only a good omen, affirmation of the greatness of Amaechi in terms of his ability in human organisation, but also acceptance of the fact that Amaechi has all it takes to once again lead the party to victory.
“We are totally convinced that Amaechi will succeed in this onerous task not minding the arduous nature of this present task in view of how far PDP have gone in poisoning the minds of some Nigerians against the present administration on her efforts to ratify the wrongs of the party during her 16 years misfortune leadership of Nigeria,” the party said.
APC described the request by the PDP leadership that Amaechi should resign his Transportation Ministry portfolio not minding the revolution he is igniting in the sector as ranting of a frightened and defeated foe who are cowed by the person and the capability of Amaechi to once again see to the woeful defeat of PDP come 2019.
“We sympathise with PDP as it will take them to do more than they are currently doing to wrestle power from APC. Besides, Amaechi need not to resign his office, as there is no constitutional backing to effect that only that PDP and his cohorts are totally afraid of the visionary and revolutionary trends of Amaechi.”
The party in a press statement circulated on Monday by Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze the SSA Media and Public Affairs Consultant to the APC Rivers State Chairman, Dr Ibiamu Davies Ikanya further reiterated that if Amaechi could led APC to victory in 2015 when PDP was in power, defeating the party now that the party is in disarray and in the hands of those that impoverished our people through looting our common patrimony with impunity the task before Amaechi and his Team becomes easier to achieve.
The APC reiterated that the task of ensuring PDP and her co-looters are kept at bay from the centre of power should not be left in the hands of Amaechi and his team but every patriotic Nigerian must assist and cooperate to ensure the success of this venture so that President Buhari will continue in his mission of rebuilding Nigeria to a better country as envisioned by the founding fathers of our nation.
The statement congratulated Amaechi and urged him not to be deterred by the PDP propagandists and un-progressive forces positioned to frustrate the efforts of this administration.
The party pleaded with the APC chieftains to close ranks and ensure the victory of the party come 2019 knowing that PDP has only one single agenda of returning to power in order to safeguard their looted funds and continue to plunder our common patrimony with impunity and in this regard, it will be suicidal to allow such a group that put us in our present sorry state to stage a come-back to power. The fact remains that no sane Nigerian will sit and allow such a group to come to power once again in our life time.
The APC reiterated that President Buhari, the APC leadership and the entire Nigerians can count on the support of all the good people of Niger Delta region as the region have fared better under this administration than what the region got from the 16 years misfortune of PDP leadership.
