The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has said that Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi will occupy a key position in the incoming government of President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari.

Tinubu also praised Amaechi for his role in ensuring the APC’s victory in the recently held general elections.

The APC leader made the statement on Thursday, May 14, 2015, during the public presentation of ‘Dynamics of Change: The Amaechi Years,’ a book edited by a former Managing Director of Daily Times, Yemi Ogunbiyi, and author, Chidi Amuta.

“Governor Amaechi and most of the governors want a properly defined federalist relationship with the government at the centre. This is, therefore, another great opportunity to salute Amaechi’s rare courage of conviction and sense of purpose,” Tinubu said.

“Rotimi will go on from here to continue to serve Nigeria in key positions. He will not be alone. He will share the company of many change agents and professionals who have cast their lots with the new political order under the leadership of the President-elect,   Muhammadu Buhari,” he added.

Amaechi, who will vacate office on May 29, 2015, is the Director-General of the Buhari Campaign Organisation.
