The All Progressives Congress, APC in Rivers State, has swiftly reacted to the Peoples Democratic Party’s claim that Transport Minister, Chibuike Amaechi and the Director-General, Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, Dr Dakuku Peterside, are only using their federal appointments to cause trouble in the State.
APC said unlike the PDP, the Transport Minister, and the NIMASA D-G were already delivering on their mandates.
In a statement by the APC’s Spokesperson in the state, Chris Finebone, the party maintained that the two federal appointees are committed to serving the people selflessly.
According to the statement, “For Rivers PDP, the dividend of democracy is looting and sharing the commonwealth of the people amongst PDP cabal.
“On the other hand, it appears beyond the comprehension of PDP that appointees in President Muhammadu Buhari’s government are committed people serving selflessly, diligently and incorruptibly.
“They are there to serve Nigerians and when they serve Nigerians well, Rivers people will get their fair share of democratic dividend. Very importantly, Felix Obuah and the PDP must understand that Rivers State has produced a Minister of Transport in the past who is a top member of the PDP.
“He was indicted and shamefully booted out by former President Olusegun Obasanjo for corruption.
“However, under Mr. Amaechi, the quantum leap in the modernisation of the railway transportation system in Nigeria is unprecedented and its benefits to all Nigerians including Rivers people will be monumental.
“The jobs the Trans Niger Delta Railway will create and the effects its operation will have for the Niger Delta will shame the PDP and their former leader who was President for six years.
“Dr. Peterside is aware that all previous heads of NIMASA ended up either in prison or being charged to court on corruption charges. So, he is committed to doing his job as the DG, NIMASA so that when he leaves, he will be doing so without blemish or tar.
“Well-meaning Rivers people know that the appointments of Amaechi and Peterside will bring them the right kind of benefits and not the type of benefits PDP appointees in the past brought to their members in the State
