2019 election: Amaechi speaks on APC battle for presidency, Rivers


Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, on Saturday spoke on the 2019 general election.

He charged all members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to work hard to ensure victory for the party in the presidential, governorship and legislative elections.

Amaechi also assured that there would not be imposition of candidates by the APC during this year’s primaries.

He spoke during a reception organized for him as grand patron of Ikwerre Youth Movement (IYM) at the Movement’s national secretariat at Isiokpo, Ikwerre local government area of the state.

His words: “The 2019 elections, especially the governorship, are our last battle. If we win, we will take over Rivers State.

“If we lose in the election, we will go home and rest.

“We will not impose any candidate. Anybody who will go for any position, like chairmanship, should go for primaries.

“Anybody who wins will be the party’s candidate.”

The former Rivers governor said it was important to ensure rotation of power among ethnic nationalities in the state.

He urged members of the APC and IYM register to vote, noting that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State can only be removed through ballot.

“As Ikwerre people, we must give out the power to other ethnic nationalities. But we will be in a position to take it back at any time. Your future is in your hands.

“Go and register to be eligible to vote and to put the candidates of your choice in power”, Amaechi stressed.
