The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, on Saturday charged members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to work hard to ensure victory for the party in the 2019 general elections. The former Rivers state governor also assured that there would not be imposition of candidates by the APC during this year’s primaries.
He made this known while speaking at 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. Amaechi said: “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.” He said it was important to ensure rotation of power among ethnic nationalities in the state.
The former governor called on 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.
