Minister Of Transport Amaechi Says He Was More Popular Than Fellow Governors While In Office

The Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, has asserted that during his eight years of governing Rivers state, he was more popular than any stakeholder of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, including his then co-governors.





The former chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, NGF, added that his goodwill remained intact throughout the time he was in charge of Rivers because he never abused the office of the Governor.

Speaking yesterday in Port Harcourt, the Rivers capital, after arriving the state ahead of the Saturday’s legislative rerun election, Amaechi said, “During my tenure as governor, I never abused the office. The office of the governor is sacred and should be respected in all ramifications.


“When I was governor, I had over 75 per cent support from Rivers people and other Nigerians resident in the state. I am very sure I had more popularity than any PDP stakeholder including governors across the country.

“This is so because, as governor then, l overhauled the health and education sectors by promoting free healthcare system and free education, over 10,000 teachers were employed, including the building of critical infrastructures, roads and youth empowerment, making Rivers people and other Nigerians to experience change.”

He went on to urge supporters of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to turn out en masse for the rerun election, assuring them of their safety.


The ex-governor, who accused opponents of his party of employing desperate means to secure victory, charged the people to resist them.
