In the recent statement issues in Lagos few hours back by Alhaji Lai Mohammed, National Public Secretary, The APC has appoint Governor Rotimi Amaechi, Rivers State as the Director General of the APC Presidential Campaign Group that will assist the party’s effort to win the coming 2015 Presidential election.
The party, APC also stated that Governor Amaechi deserves the new position based on his outstanding dedication, courage, principle and the love he shows to the noble country, Nigeria.
Here’s what the Party Leader, APC had to say to show appreciations towards choosing Buhari and Osinbajo for the coming 2015 election.
”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.
”Yes, we were spoilt for choice but, in the end, we picked as running mate a man whose pedigree, nationally, sub-regionally, regionally and globally, attests to the fact that our party, the APC, is a repository of high quality leadership materials, and that our country, Nigeria, has no shortage of the very best human resources,” it said.
APC expressed further how Prof. Osinbajo is the right running mate to Buhari. APC said whether in the academic, legal or ecclesiastical world, Prof. Osinbajo stands much taller than his physical frame, and serves as a good running mate to our presidential candidate.
”Our presidential running mate is an award-winning professor of law, a legal luminary, a gentleman, a much-sought-after public speaker, a tested administrator, an author and a man of great ecclesiastical standing.
”Educated in Nigeria and the UK, Prof. Osinbajo is a Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria, who has served in many organizations and professional bodies in Nigeria, West Africa, Africa and the United Nations. He has authored or edited over a dozen publications, has taught and practised law at the high levels, and has served on the Editorial Boards of learned publications and non-legal publications, in addition to publishing many articles in learned journals.
”Now that we have presented Nigerians with the best possible choices for the exalted positions of President and Vice President, we expect that citizens, who have been yearning for quality leadership, will use their voting power to put Nigeria firmly on the path of greatness. A country seeking to be among the greats in the comity of nations cannot afford to have a mediocre leadership,” the party said.
