The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said that Nigeria will become a world beater in so short a time if the party is voted into power in the 2015 |Presidential election.
State Chairman of the party, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya made the submission while reacting to the declaration of Nigeria as Ebola-free by the World Health Organisation (WHO) on Monday.
In a statement issued on Thursday in Port-Harcourt, Dr. Davies said: “Monday, 21st October, 2014, will remain evergreen in the history of Nigeria as it was the day the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared Nigeria Ebola-free and the American Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) also declared Nigeria’s Ebola eradication effort as a model which the USA and other nations must emulate.
“Those of us in APC celebrate this feat since Lagos and Rivers, the two states that achieved this milestone, are APC States. This clearly points to where the hope lies as Nigerians prepare to vote for a new government next year. With what Lagos and Rivers states demonstrated in this regard, it simply means that with APC at the helm of affairs come 2015, Nigeria will surely be a world beater.”
The party further stated that, “If we fail to take advantage of the 2015 elections to vote out the wicked and visionless PDP, we are doomed as a nation.”
Congratulating Governors Babatunde Fashola and Chibuike Amaechi of Lagos and Rivers States respectively for putting smiles and hope on the faces of Nigerians and the entire world through their robust and effective response to the Ebola challenge, the party stressed that the gallant medical staff particularly in Lagos and Rivers State paid the supreme price in their determination to save the nation from catastrophe.
The party also commended the Government of USA for deciding to learn from the strategies adopted by the two APC states of Lagos and Rivers to eradicate Ebola from Nigeria.
Long Live APC!
Long Live Rivers State!!
