Former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi on Friday urged the people of Rivers State to vote massively for the All Progressives Congress ( APC) in the 2023 general elections, saying the people will enjoy the good things as it was between 2007 to 2015.
The former Rivers State Governor made the statement while addressing the peopl at APC Rivers State Ward campaign in Emohua Local Government Area.
Amaechi asked the people to compare how life was when he was Governor of Rivers from 2007 to 2015 and 2007 to 2022 when Governor Nyesom Wike is in charge. He asked them to give a honest response on which was better. The highly ecstatic crowd shouted “2007 to 2015!”.
“Compare the government in Rivers between 2007 to 2015 and 2015 to present, which one is better? If life was better between 2007 to 2015, the reason why life is hard now is because the government is bad”.
“When we were in government, we realised that you had challenges in medical, we built health centre’s. We realised that your children need to go to school, we built schools. We realised that you didn’t have money to pay school fees, we paid school fees”.
” These people came but put the money in their pockets instead of serving you. Be rest assured that if we win, we will serve you”.
“But most importantly, don’t just sit here. Go and get people out of their houses to vote APC. You must go out there and sell our programmes to the Rivers people. We will win the election” he assured.
