Gov. Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers on Monday said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) would promote progress and create job opportunities if voted into power.
Amaechi spoke at Ubima, Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers, after registering as an APC member at Ubima Ward 8.
The governor’s wife, Judith, was also registered as a member of the party.
Amaechi said the party was on a rescue mission in the state and in the country.
“From what you can see, APC is the fastest growing party in Africa.
“All these people you are seeing here were once members of PDP; today, they joined me in formally moving to APC and the reason for moving to APC is that we are on a rescue mission.
“We are here to save Nigeria from PDP and when we do that, we will try and create employment opportunities for the army of unemployed Nigerians because you must grow the economy”, he said.
