Amaechi stated that he will deliver on his electioneering promises before living office next year.

On development of the state, he said much has been done in the area of agriculture, especially the Songhai Farm, the Banana Farm at Tai, LGA and the Risonpalm which generated a lot of employments.

He recalled that his disagreement with the president started when he gave Rivers State Oil wells to Bayelsa and Abia States respectively.

Earlier, the chairman of the Organizing Committee of the rally, the Deputy Governor of Rivers State, Engr. Tele Ikuru said “the dream of positive change of our mother land has been achieved through the restoration by the Governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi”.

On his part the speaker Hon. Otelemaba Dan Amachree said the 25 lawmakers have remained faithful with Amaechi despite intimidation, suppression, bribery with oil wells among others.

Also speaking, the member representing South-East Senatorial District, Senator Magnus Abe and Hon. Dakuku Peterside of the House of Representatives poured encomium on the governor of Rivers State, Rt. Hon. Amaechi.
