The immediate past governor of Rivers state, Rotimi Amaechi has pleaded with Nigerians to give the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government the maximum support in order to achieve sustainable development and success for the country.

The ex-governor made this pledge on Wednesday, September 30, in Port Harcourt to mark the nation’s independence anniversary, The Punch reports.

Amaechi said that only patriotism and unity of purpose are the essential ingredients needed to solve the problems militating against Nigeria’s development.

He hinted that Buhari’s government has shown promises of better days ahead hence the need for the people to cooperate with the administration.

“Our problems as a nation can only be successfully dealt with in unity. We need to imbibe patriotism to ensure that the sacrifices of our founding fathers and heroes are not in vain.

“The President Buhari-led government is a very promising one and with the support and cooperation of all of us, Nigerians, the government will achieve its aim and turn the fortunes of our country”, Amaechi said.

He added that Nigerians should also back the administration with continued prayers that will help make the leaders stay on track and execute the promises made to the people.

Meanwhile, the former governor’s name was reportedly said to be among the ministerial nominees sent by the president to the Senate for confirmation. Ameachi was the director of the Buhari’s presidential campaign organisation.

Nigeria’s leading opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had severally alleged that the former governor contributed huge funds from the coffers of Rivers State to Buhari’s campaign.
