A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State, Hon. Gabriel C. Amaewhule has expressed optimism that the state chapter of the party will bounce back, if the leaders sheathed their sword and returned to the drawing board.
Speaking with TNN, Amaewhule noted that there was no coming together of two or more persons without disagreements. According to him, even siblings in various families do have misunderstanding.
The chieftain appealed to those offended to forgive, insisting that continual division and battle against each other will only lead to more crises in the party.
He said: “I am very much optimistic that our great party has all it takes to bounce back. There is one major ideology I grew up with, and that is putting the interest of the people first, that is, pursuing the course of the common man.
“The party has the interest of the masses at heart, outside my respect and trust for my principal which aroused my fellowership, APC is a party we believe will carry out an all-encompassing rapid developmental drive for both human capacity and infrastructural wise.
“So much has happened, more is still happening but if only our leaders will go back to the vision behind the formation of this party, go back to the drawing board and see the sufferings we wanted to eradicate, it was never to witch-hunt ourselves, or anybody, it was to better the lives and livelihood of Rivers people.”
Amaewhule also called on Rivers residents to help win the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic by observing all stipulated measures, mostly, proper coverage of the nose and mouth with the face mask.
