The South-East chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, said yesterday it was optimistic that Governor Rotimi Amaechi will lead the party to victory in the February, 2015 presidential election
The APC chapter, in a congratulatory message to Governor Amaechi on his appointment as Director General of Gen. Buhari Presidential Campaign Organisation, said “the Governor will surely lead our great party to victory, given his sterling qualities as man of courage, focused and fearless fighter.”
According to a statement issued by Osita Okechukwu, a copy of which was made available to Vanguard in Abuja, APC is getting it right in all departments”.
According to the statement; “We cannot forget in a hurry how he defeated the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors in the historic Nigeria Governors Forum’s election, an election that exposed the perfidy of President Goodluck Jonathan regime.
“We recall that the day Governor Amaechi joined forces with the progressives, he automatically and patriotically redefined Nigeria’s political landscape, cancelled out North-South divide. While, today,. Governor Ibrahim Shema of Katsina State is battling his Katsina brother, Mohammadu Buhari, Amaechi is battling his Bayelsa brother Goodluck Jonathan. This is healthy for our fledgling democracy.
