Governor of Rivers State and Chairman of Nigeria Governors Forum, Rt. Hon. Rotimi Ameachi, has urged the Federal Government to effectively transform Nigeria and stop promoting the politics of religion in the midst of peace loving Nigerians.
Amaechi said the country is currently operating at disadvantaged level of power supply which is the basis for improved productivity.
“As I speak, my state has spent hugely to build its power plant but due to bad system, its distribution has been stagnated as most of the transmission lines are bad”, he said.
The governor said the country has been caged by the failure of the Peoples Democratic Party-led federal government in so many aspects of development and that “we need to transform the country, which All Progressives Congress is working towards for a new lease of life for Nigerians”.
Amaechi noted that Boko Haram is a bye product of poverty, adding that what an average Nigerian required was transformation that would ensure his comfort and safety in terms of security and food.
“Our people need peace, security and food as well life line for earning average income to sustain their living”, the governor stressed.
