Amaechi’s, Dakuku’s appointments has brought woes to Rivers People – PDP

by on January 24, 2017

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Rivers State says the appointment of former governor Chibuike Amaechi as Trans­port Minister and Dakuku Peterside as the Director-General, Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, has only brought woes and anguish to the people of the state in­stead of blessings.

The party called on the leaders to use their offices to attract development to Riv­ers State instead of causing crisis and division.

In a statement by its Riv­ers Chairman, Felix Obuah, yesterday, the PDP claimed that since Amaechi and Pe­terside assumed offices at the national level they had not attracted any meaningful de­velopment to the state, alleg­ing that they had only been involved in trying to create crisis in the state.

The statement made avail­able by Obuah’s Media Aide, Jerry Needam, reads, “Since their appointments, Minis­ter of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi and Director-Gen­eral of NIMASA, Dakuku Peterside, who are from the state, have also not been able to initiate any project or em­powerment scheme in the state.

“Rather than serve as a blessing to the people of Riv­ers State the appointment of the APC leaders from the state had become source of woes and anguish, as they have only used such posi­tions to cause crisis and di­vision, doing everything to blackmail the government in the state in their quest to force themselves on the peo­ple undemocratically.

“Stop the noise and desist from causing problems in Rivers State, deliver mean­ingful projects and empow­erment schemes to the peo­ple.

“Regrettably, Rivers State today is one of the few states that has not been accorded its right place by the APC government as a result of continued and deliberate de­nial and suppressive actions by even those who have ben­efitted a lot from the state’s treasures.

“It is on the strength of this that we charge the duo of Amaechi and Peterside to have a rethink, by stopping the fight of attrition against the government and people of the state and join hands to develop it and to influence federal projects into the state as their lawful responsibility.”
