We especially welcome our amiable and indefatigable governor, Rt Hon Rotimi Amaechi, for taking the courageous and historic step of leaving the fast crumbling PDP into the progressives fold.
The movement of these governors, particularly that of Governor Amaechi to the Progressives Party is one that has brought delight to our heart especially considering the untold hardship the people of Rivers State have had to endure because of the difference between our governor and the enclave called the PDP.
It is on record that Governor Amaechi’s courage and insistence to stand for the entirety of his people as against the interest of a few has cost the government and people of River state the dividends of democracy that it should enjoy from the central government.
While the presidency may see this as a way of getting back at the governor, they failed to see the fact that it is not about Amaechi, but about the Rivers people. Like Amaechi himself has said, “they want Rivers people to die,” but what do they care?
In spite of all the intimidation, harassment and persecution by the Presidency and the PDP, Governor Amaechi has shown his strong resolve to stand by his people. He has demonstrated strong personal principles, commitment and conviction to the progress of Rivers State and has recorded achievements to the shock of his detractors. One only wonders what Amaechi would have done if he had the support of the PDP and the presidency.
Indeed, Amaechi’s achievements notwithstanding all the drawbacks only goes to tell that he had no business belonging to a party with no vision for the people it claims to be governing. He has demonstrated clearly that he is a progressive and deserves to be in the fold of the progressives, where transparent and accountable leadership that is governed by the principles of progress, integrity and equity is favoured.
This is particularly why we in the Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Youth Forum, APYF is delighted that Governor Amaechi has joined the train of those who will rescue Nigeria from imminent state failure under the PDP and ensure security, economic development and progress, not just in Rivers State but Nigeria at large
We heartily welcome you all and pledge that as progressive youths in River State, we will join forces with our dynamic and people-oriented governor to ensure the round defeat of the PDP which has a repute for wasting public resources and further impoverishing Nigerians.
Long live All Progressives Youth Forum (APYF)
Long live All Progressives Congress (APC)
Long live River State
Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria
