The fear expressed by most Nigerians that Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State has lost out, after all, from the All Progressives Congress (APC) selection process ahead of the 2015 presidential election has been proved wrong, as Amaechi is named Director-General of the APC Presidential Campaign Organisation.

Unperturbed Amaechi is therefore expected to drive the party’s determination to wrest power from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan come 2015.

APC’s National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in a statement made available to Blank NEWS Online said “Amaechi’s outstanding reputation as a man of courage, principle, strength of character, decency and love of his country as well as his administrative prowess and organisational skills combined to fetch him perhaps the most important task in the quest for positive change in Nigeria.”

Amaechi, whose task is to ensure that APC presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) and his running mate, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo replaces Dr. Goodluck Jonathan and Arch. Namadi Sambo at the Aso-Rock Villa, is known to have led lethal and venomous attacks on Jonathan, his Niger-Delta kinsman and has been widely adjudged a betrayer.
On the choice of Buhari and Osinbajo, APC said: “Now that we have presented Nigerians with the best possible choices for the exalted positions of President and Vice President, we expect that citizens, who have been yearning for quality leadership, will use their voting power to put Nigeria firmly on the path of greatness.

“A country seeking to be among the greats in the comity of nations cannot afford to have a mediocre leadership.”
