Gov. Amaechi Tapped to Lead Buhari’s Campaign

Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State has been named director-general of Nigeria’s opposition APC Presidential Campaign Organisation.
Amaechi was a frontrunner in the contest for running mate to Gen. Muhammadu Buhari who emerged the party’s flag-bearer on December 11.
The new appointment was contained in a statement issued by the party’s spokesman Lai Mohammed on Thursday.
Gov. Amaechi’s outstanding reputation as a man of courage, principle, strength of character, decency and love of country, as well as his administrative prowess and organizational skills combined to fetch him perhaps the most important task in the quest for positive change in Nigeria, APC stated.
The party also commented on the emergence of Gen. Buhari as its presidential candidate and the choice of Prof. Yemi Osinbajo as his running mate: “With a presidential candidate that has rekindled the hopes of the citizenry and revived their belief in democratic ideals, we believe we must also choose a running mate that will complement the sterling qualities of the presidential candidate. We must confess that the choice was a tough one, considering the array of eminently qualified and outstanding candidates that we had to choose from.”
