Former Rivers State governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, has called on Nigerians to support the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government in achieving success, growth and sustainable development.
Amaechi, in a statement issued in Port Harcourt on Wednesday night in commemoration of Nigeria’s 55th independence anniversary, called for unity and patriotism which he said are the key to tackling the problems of the nation.
He said, “Our problems as a nation can only be successfully dealt with in unity. We need to imbibe patriotism to ensure that the sacrifices of our founding fathers and heroes are not in vain.
“The President Buhari-led government is a very promising one and with the support and cooperation of all of us Nigerians, the government would achieve its aim and turn the fortunes of our country around.”
The former governor, who was the director-general of Buhari Campaign Organisation, called for continued prayers for the country and its leaders to stay on the right path.
He further urged the people to reflect on the journey of the nation, its transition, gains and many challenges from 1960 till date and think of what can be done to better our lot even as they go all out to celebrate this 55th independence anniversary.
