The Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr Dakuku Peterside has lauded the appointment of Rt Hon Chibuike Amaechi as the Director General/Secretary of the President Muhammadu Buhari campaign organisation.
Dr Peterside stated this on the sidelines of the 4th conference of Association of African Maritime Administration, (AAMA) taking place in Egypt.
According to him, Rt Hon Amaechi, who is also the Minister for Transport, has proven beyond every doubt about his capability, resourcefulness and temperance to lead a presidential campaign organisation.
He recalled that Amaechi, as then governor of Rivers State, successfully led the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Team that defeated an incumbent administration.
“Leading a presidential campaign team is no mean feat. And to be appointed a second time shows depth, responsibility, tact, discipline and trust. I know the first time was engaging, the second will even be more engaging but I know that he is equal to the task,” he stressed.
The NIMASA boss called on members of the APC to give Amaechi and his team all the necessary support to ensure the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 general elections.
“Ensuring the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 is a task not just for APC members but for Nigerians across all party affiliation. We must work hard to make it happen,” he stated.
