The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has lauded the reappointment of Rotimi Amaechi as the Director General, Presidential Campaign Council of President Muhammadu Buhari.

This is contained in a statement by the Chairman, APC Rivers State, Davies Ikanya.

APC said the development is an “affirmation of the greatness of Amaechi in terms of his ability in human organisation and 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 described the request by the PDP leadership that Amaechi should resign his Transportation Ministry portfolio as rant of a frightened and defeated foe.

“We sympathise with PDP as they try to wrestle power from APC. Besides, Amaechi need not to resign his office as there is no constitutional backing their call. PDP are totally afraid of the visionary and revolutionary trends of Amaechi

Ikanya further reiterated that if Amaechi could led APC to victory in 2015 when PDP was in power, defeating the party now becomes easier to achieve.

The statement urged Amaechi not to be deterred by opposition propagandists and forces positioned to frustrate the efforts of the Buhari administration.

The party also pleaded with the APC chieftains to close ranks and ensure the victory of the party come 2019.

“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 sorroy state to stage a come-back to power.”
