The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress APC has expressed joy over the nomination of Rotimi Amaechi by Mr President Muhammadu Buhari.
The APC in a statement made available to journalists in Port Harcourt by its spokesman, Mr Chris Finebone, said, “as a party, the APC in Rivers State is elated that Rotimi Amaechi has been graciously nominated by Mr. President and cleared by the Nigerian Senate to serve as a minister of the federal republic of Nigeria in the second term cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari.”
Continuing, he said, “Quite honestly, not a few of us are surprised that the former minister is returning and the reason is simple. Amaechi breathed vigour, innovation and focus into the development of transportation infrastructure of this country in the past 4 years under President Buhari so much that he became the poster boy, the very face of the administration in the eyes of Nigerians and the world.”
“Our fervent belief and prayer therefore is that he returns to the ministry of transportation to complete the arduous task of modernising and lifting the nation’s transportation sector to the next level. We believe and trust that Rotimi Amaechi will deliver, once again” Finebone finally declared.
