..Urges Niger Deltans not to repeat 2015 blunder of believing and working for fake messiahs
Rivers chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the brouhaha generated by a cross section of Nigerians over the resolve of President Muhammadu to seek a second term tenure come 2019 as unnecessary and unwarranted as Mr. President is by the tenets of our constitution empowered to seek a second term tenure if he so desires.
The party urged Nigerians not to be deceived by some of these agitators as they are influenced, enforced and enabled by those who looted our common patrimony with impunity in order to frustrate the realization of the second term bid for them to protect their loots against the progress and development of Nigeria and Nigerians.
The APC said it is fully aware of the dangers inherent in the propaganda and wicked rumours being peddled by those they called “economic saboteurs” in order to ensure that the reelection of President Buhari becomes a bit difficult but asserted that no matter their level of propaganda, President Buhari has done much to guarantee his re-election.
“The party will not be deterred by the antecedents of these enemies of our country and will not cease to highlight the benefits that are accruable to Nigeria and Nigerians if President Buhari succeeds come 2019”, said Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, the Media Consultant to Dr Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, the State Chairman of Rivers APC in a statement to media organizations today.
The party reassured Nigerians that those who have ruined the country’s economy and are attempting to frustrate the re-election of the African Icon of anti-corruption struggle will surely not succeed. “These looters are fully aware of what the re-election of President Buhari entails as it will constitute a challenge to their keeping and securing their loots but we will not allow them to come back in order to continue their looting spree from where they stopped in 2015 no matter the odds”.
The party reiterated that President Buhari so far those of us from the South-South region are concerned, his re-election is imperative if we are to consider the following feats and projects so far executed by the present administration at the centre in South -South. Some of these projects are listed as follows:
The party recalled that Dr. Goodluck Jonathan a son of the region in his six years as the President of Nigeria acknowledged that he failed Rivers State and the Niger Delta region by not embarking on any meaningful project in the region apart from imposing Chief Nyesom Wike as the Governor of Rivers State to promote insecurity in the State and the region.
The party further stated that the APC led FG under President Buhari has proved within less than three years that APC has the best interest of the State and region at heart by the various interventions the Federal Government has embarked upon in the region within the last three years and will surely be supported for his second term bid.
The APC finally urged Niger Delta people to consider the interests that President Buahri have demonstrated towards the region and not to make the blunder of the 2015 where they mistakenly supported a ‘son’ who failed the region woefully.Source:https://www.vanguardngr.com/2018/04/rivers-apc-gives-reasons-president-buharis-second-coming-imperative-niger-delta/
