His contributions to the party and this government, including what we have suffered here in Rivers state, make his own nomination and his now successful screening, all the sweeter. We thank the President for standing by him. He will more than justify your confidence. “While we await the screening of significant others and the assignment of portfolios, it is worthy to note that continuity in areas where we performed is the surest way to consolidation. I look forward to seeing the returnees in familiar roles, while the newcomers hit the ground running. Time is not on our side. Nigerians need results. There will be no honeymoon period. “Which is the more reason why we in the ruling party need to bury all our political differences within our APC family and join hands, especially here in Rivers state. If we can not learn from our mistakes, we will be doomed to repeat them. Anywhere we find a brother or a sister, let us do our little bit to provide them support. To our members and to our fellow Nigerians I say, let’s be positive, no list is perfect, but the pursuit of perfection is itself a major motivation”, he added. Vanguard
