A non governmental organization known as Power Arc Media has showered encomiums on President Muhammadu Buhari for approving the release of N78Billion to offset bills incurred by the government of Rivers state for projects executed on its behalf in the state.
The federal government gesture, the Power Arc Media opined is a welcome rapprochement for peace , unity and development of all parts of Nigeria , saying “ by this gesture, President Buhari has demonstrated statesmanship and unbiased stance on the welfare and wellbeing of all Nigerians”.
In the statement signed by the group Director of operations, Mr. Tedd Avindigh in Abuja , they noted that the federal government’s action tallied with its goals and mission to promote unity and engender development in all parts of Nigeria.
Specifically, the group commended Transport Minister Rotimi Amaechi who is believed to have facilitated the gesture to Rivers state.
According to the Organisation, “ By this development, the federal government has extended the olive branch to Rivers state and indeed smoothened the hitherto frosty relationship between Amaechi and his successor Nyesom Wike .
“ A harmonious relationship between and among political leaders is the needed ingredient for meaningful development in the country “.
They therefore urged Amaechi and Wike to sustain the peace move in the interest of the state and Nigeria at large.
The group also commended Governor Wike for his perseverance and appreciation to the federal government even as they advised him to deploy the fund towards improving the infrastructures and over all development of the state.
They counseled Nigerians to embrace peace and dialogue on issues no matter the odds in order to avoid rancour or acrimony “because only a peaceful atmosphere can guarantee genuine development”.
They craved for an egalitarian society where peace and unity reigns and where every citizen of Nigeria is free to carry out his or her legitimate business in any part of the country without fear of molestation or intimidation.
