Leaders and Elders Forum of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Delta on Friday lauded President Bola Tinubu over the appointment of Festus Keyamo as the Minister of Aviation, News About Nigeria reports.
They also appreciated him for the appointment of two other sons of the land, Chiedu Ebie and Monday Igbuys as chairman and member of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
The Forum which also commended the President for the provision of subsidy removal palliatives to the state and Nigeria at large said this in a communique jointly signed by the forum’s Chairman, Chief Godwin Ogbetuo, and others at the end of its meeting on Friday at Asaba.
“The forum noted with satisfaction the efforts put in place by the administration of Tinubu through its palliative programme to cushion the effects of the subsidy removal in the petroleum sector.
“This has grossly affected the living conditions of the citizens of Nigeria and Delta in particular.”
The Delta APC, however, accused the State Government of politicizing and abusing the distribution process of the bags of rice meant to help the people of the state.
The forum alleged that the state government had abused the distribution process by appointing only its members to supervise committees at various levels.
They also commended, “the doggedness of the members of the party in the state in spite of the intimidation, maiming, unlawful arrest with frivolous charges and deprivation by the led administration in Delta.”
The forum further appealed to all party members who may have reservations over the appointments to please bury such in the interest and growth of the party.
