Amaechi who was present at the ceremony with his wife, Judith and children on the occasion put the challenges facing the country to insecurity even as he thanked God for how His grace on him.

“There was lot of development during Ameachi’s time as Governor. As transport minister and two time Director-General of Presidential Campaign Team for President Muhammadu Buhari, he has continued with his streak of successes.

“Amaechi is a fair-minded person, convinced that Upland has tasted Rivers governorship for too long and needed, trying his best, to ensure that Riverine person becomes governor. He hasn’t succeed in actualising this for now, but posterity will judge him well.

“He is a selfless and detribalised leader, Amaechi made a lot of people outside his Ikwerre roots. The MD of NDDC is one of the persons he got to where he is today. There is Dakuku Peterside of NIMASA, to emphasise the point that all he helped to get appointed are not necessarily Ikwerre.

“When it’s turn of the South-South to produce President, the whole of South South will support rally round to support Amaechi. He is an outstanding leader by every calculation of the world.”
