Guild of Editors to Amaechi: Stand with the people, we’ll stand by you
Nigerian Guild of Editors, NGE, has urged Rivers State governor and Chairman of Nigeria Governors Forum, Mr. Chibuike Amaechi, not to stop standing up and fighting for the people as the Guild will also stand by him for standing with the masses.
Speaking during a courtesy visit to Governor Amaechi in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, weekend, the newly elected President of the Guild of Editors, Mr. Femi Adesina, who led the delegation of the new Guild executive committee, assured the Rivers State governor that Nigerian editors would continue to support him for fighting the cause of the Nigerian masses.
He said: “We are glad that we are here today to see somebody that has made impact on the lives of the people. We have monitored your progress and we have seen that you have changed the face of the landscape particularly in Rivers State. You have touched the lives of the people and we, as Editors, will gladly partner and support anybody that stands for the people.
“The needs of the people are not really much. They want good health care, a health care system that works; they want security, shelter, good roads, power, jobs and if you can provide most of those, then you become their hero. We have seen that your government is doing all that and more for the people, so we are glad to be here and we pledge that as long as you stand for the people and with the people, the Nigerian editors will also stand by you and with you.”
Responding, Amaechi thanked the members of the Nigerian Guild of Editors for the visit and congratulated the new executive on their election.
