A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State, Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has spoken on how the reconciliation of the former governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi and the former Governor of Akwa Ibom, Godswill Akpabio will benefit the Niger Delta region and Nigeria as a whole.
He took time out to laud Nasiru Danu and the Director of Strategic Communications of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, who propelled the peace deal.
He appreciated the duo for ending their differences for the interest of the party and the development of the country.
Eze stated this in a statement made available to newsmen, he stated that the reconciliation of the two politicians will help the stability of the Niger Delta region, and give the party a better chance in the region.
Recall that the two politicians met in Abuja to settle their differences with Keyamo as a witness.
“At the end, both leaders agreed to close ranks and work in unison for the overall interest of the party, their region and the country.”
“They promised to put behind them all previously perceived misgivings between them and to give a positive direction to the teeming supporters of the party across the country.”
“These two great political giants need no much introduction and sadly their political differences even during their days as Governors of their states have always polarized issues that would have been of common interest to the region, which other political leaders from other regions have always capitalized on to deny the region some of its rights in areas of development and appointments.”
“Their coming together will put a stop to such negative impact on the socio-economy of the region and will cause the region to take its rightful position in the political setup of Nigeria.”
“I therefore commend and congratulate these two illustrious sons of Niger Delta region for this bold step that will checkmate external intruders that don’t have the interest of the region at heart.”
“I expect these two to galvanize and mobilize other leaders of the region so that collectively they can present a common front that will enhance and speed up the emancipation and development of the region as the region can no longer continue to lay the eggs that feed this nation and continue to suffer deprivation and lack of development”.
