Rivers People Have A Stake In Atiku Presidency, Says Former Transport Minister

(By Silas Tamuno) –

Former Minister of Transportation during the administration of President Olusegun Obasanjo, Dr. Abiye Sekibo, has declared that Rivers people have a stake in the 2023 elections, especially in the presidency of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

The former Minister and currently, Chairman of Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Council in Rivers State made the declaration at a meeting in Port Harcourt on Monday, even as he urged any Rivers person thinking of voting for Tinubu in 2023 to have a rethink.

He explained:

“You cannot vote for somebody who has destroyed the economy of your state.This politics is not a game, it is the life of our children, yet unborn. If we get it wrong, we cannot recover.

“We want a president who will come and make sure that Onne Sea Port works; that Port Harcourt Port works, and that Bonny Sea Port becomes a reality; not somebody who is going to start Lekki Sea Port as his private business.

“Rivers people have a stake in the presidency of Atiku Abubakar because we will benefit when he becomes president of Nigeria by the grace of God. This is an assignment for every one who has the interest of Rivers State at heart.

“We want to make sure oil company head quarters come back to Port Harcourt, especially the locations where they are operating instead of Lagos; and then using helicopter to bring their workers to the oil well and taking them back, thus denying Rivers state
taxes due to the state.

“Rivers people have a stake in the coming election: that is why all of us have to stand up and and work hard to ensure that Atiku Abubakar wins the presidency”, Dr. Abiye Sekibo concluded.


In his remarks, the Technical Adviser on Strategic Communications, Atiku Campaign Council in Rivers State, Barr. Emeh Glory Emeh, advised Social Media Influencers to be focused in promoting the ideas of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential Candidate, describing the former Vice – President, Atiku Abubakar, who is also Waziri Adamawa, as the best material who can instil a new spirit in the process of restoring the lost glory of Nigeria.

The former Commissioner of Transport and Aviation as well as Chief of Staff, Government House, Port Harcourt, also counselled media managers to avoid the use of abusive languages, but rather focus on promoting the plans and programmes of Atiku/Okowa Government in 2023.

The Technical Adviser on Strategic Communication further maintained that the introduction of the BVAS technology in the forthcoming general election has made the victory of Atiku Abubakar a fait accompli, adding that, “Atiku Abubakar is the choice of Nigerians because of his physical strength, mental capacity as well as his experience in politics and governance.

“As a student of politics and governance, I believe I am adequately trained to know that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is what Nigeria needs at this turbulent period in the nation’s history”, Chief Emeh further stated.
