MINISTER of State for Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, weekend, said the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, will further concentrate on the empowerment of the grassroots in moving all Nigerians from poverty to wealth.
This is just as two leaders of the party in Delta State, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor and Chief Hyacinth Enuha, described the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as the common enemy of the APC, adding that until PDP is uprooted from the state, “we would never rest on our oars.”
Speaking at Evwreni, Ughelli North Local Government Area of the state during a reconciliation meeting of interest groups in the party, Kachikwu said: “Every time we gather, we talk about the State House. The State House is not the issue, but empowering our people from poverty to wealth creation. If we cannot empower our people we may have nothing to sell as a party. It is the process of that movement that will make us get to the State House, which is the concept of unity.”
In their respective remarks, Emerhor and Enuha said the meeting became imperative to seek ways of uniting the party by putting their personal interest aside, working in unity to enable them win future elections in the state.
