ABUJA, (CAJ News) – AMID opinions divided over the nomination of former Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, for a ministerial post, a prodemocracy organisation has commended the move.
“It did not come to us as a surprise that former Governor of Rivers State, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, will make the list considering his visionary track record and legacies bequeathed to Rivers people,” Solomon Okocha, spokesperson of the Patriots Alliance.
He said the Patriots Alliance commended President Muhammadu Buhari’s courage and strong willpower in ensuring that men and women of impeccable character and undaunted profiles emerged as ministers of the Federal Republic.
“This in spite of slanderous propaganda and endless name calling targeted on some of the nominees,” said Okocha.
He said the organisation pledged its total support for the President’s meticulous and focused pattern of identifying and nominating persons who will head ministries in Nigeria.
“It is our believe that the Senate will screen and pass these nominees expeditiously, notwithstanding the acrimonious clamours by some mischievous elements, as the nation is already set on the path of national development in line with President Mohammadu Buhari’s clear and purposeful agenda for Nigeria.”
