APC Sets Agenda For Peace In Rivers …Explains Collaboration With Wike
A chieftain of the All Peoples Congress and senator representing Rivers East Senatorial District, Senator Andrew Uchendu has explained the decision to collaborate with the state governor, Chief Nyesom Wike.
In his address to newsmen in port Harcourt, senator uchendu praised the governor’s call for all hands to be on deck for a peaceful and prosperous state, and offered advice areas that required immediate intervention in the state.
These he said included the revitalization of the C4i Security architecture of the previous administration.rehabilitation of sons and daughters that are roaming the streets of foreign lands because of the cancellation or stoppage of their scholarship awards,re -activation of the Greater Port Harcourt Project and the ompletion of some of the laudable pro-people projects embarked upon by the administration of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.
Uchendu said “another critical area deserving of the governor’s attention is unemployment and closely linked to that is education. Agriculture has been identified as the next big earner and a major generator of employment opportunities.
“Sadly all the agriculture infrastructure put in place by Governor Amaechi as a means for ensuring fiscal and physical security have all been jettisoned. Worse still Rivers state government has failed to take advantage of numerous federal government initiatives by the Buhari Administration to create jobs and support micro businesses for others at the bottom rung of the ladder”.
He averred that Rivers people must now become the centre of all politics and governance adding that akey indicator of good governance is the return of peace and security in the State.he urged Governor Wike to “draw from the experience of his predecessor, Rt. Hon Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, who inherited a state that was plagued by massive insecurity and infrastructural decay but within the first few years of his administration had addressed these challenges and set the state on the path of recovery.
