Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State has urged Nigerians to vote cautiously in Saturday’s presidential elections in order to shape their future. He said that it was their only power to transform both the country and its leadership and appealed to the people to vote for the All Progressives Congress, APC presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.
Amaechi spoke at the 27th convocation of Rivers State University of Science and Technology in Port Harcourt, weekend. According to him, Nigerians would be faced with the reality of voting on March 28 in the country’s Presidential election. He said: “Today, you are confronted with one reality, the reality of Nigeria.
That reality begins from March 28, the reality to choose between good and evil and the reality to choose between peace and corruption and those who want to change your life; the reality of the fact that after now, most of you will be unemployed.
The reality of the fact that I sit here as governor and students are fighting over electric fan, compared with the reality of the fact that in other universities outside this country, convocation arenas are built with air-conditioners, so students don’t fight over fan. That reality is what confronts you today.
“It is the reality of asking your lecturers, what are their qualifications, why don’t we have enough lecturers in each faculty? When I was in the University of Port Harcourt, I had enough lecturers in my faculty and I’m proud to say that I graduated from that university knowing my lecturers were those who could defend their degrees.”
