Move on Nigeria, a political and civic-action group, has urged the Senate to confirm former Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State as minister, noting that Amaechi merited his appointment given the active role he played in the emergence of the new dispensation.
The group, in a statement in Abuja by its national coordinator, Mr. Clem Aguiyi, said: “Former Governor Amaechi worked tirelessly for this era including taking some personal risks. During the period we were opposed to each other and luckily for him his side won the election. If the President needs him as part of the cabinet’s team, his nomination should be allowed to go through. I don’t think President Buhari should be denied any tool he needs to work or be given an excuse to fail.”
