Rivers State Governor Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi says he contested and won the Nigeria Governors Forum election which was held on Friday.
Amaechi said this on Sunday at an Interdenominational Church Service at Corpus Christi Cathedral in Port Harcourt to mark this year’s children’s day celebration which also coincided with his (Amaechi) 48th birthday.
According to him “let me say to you, I am the Chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum. That we are not talking it’s because we have decided not to talk. They voted, we voted and we wons. If they had won, I would have congratulated them”, he said.
Governor Amaechi also assured children of the state of his administration’s desire to provide good governance and quality education. He also said government was on track to provide adequate security all over the state.
“I want to assure the children that this country has no future without you. We owe you nothing but good leadership, good governance and to ensure we provide good education. I also assure you as a government that security is a priority to us, we should not play politics with the lives of our people,” he said.
Earlier, the officiating Priest, the Catholic Bishop of Port Harcourt Diocese Most Reverend Camillus Etukudoh congratulated Governor Amaechi, assuring him that the church will continue to pray for him and the State.
