Events took a different twist today as the Leadership and stakeholders of the G23 MANDATE, an NGO with the core mandate of advocating for an all inclusive Rivers State, where Justice, Fairness & Equity shall reign paid a Courtesy/Solidarity visit to Chief Hon. Alabo Michael West at his port Harcourt office.
The group’s Director General,Elder Njoku Anele while speaking described Chief West as an embodiment of good conscience, courage and great mobiliser of human and material resources, noting that his decision to wreck havoc on the People’s Democratic Party by joining the All Progressive Congress is a clear testimony having served as Commissioner for Transportation in Gov. Wike’s first term in office.
The group’s core ideals, values and modus operandi were assertively explained to the host by the group’s chief scribe, Comr. Abadi Silas Uwasanim, while speaking he stressed emphatically on the composition of the group, which was comprised of Rivers young minds that are dissatisfied with the governance arrangement in the state which depicts injustice, deprivation,subjugation and political exploitation.
He further stated that the group’s vision inter alia is to galvanize and champion support for an egalitarian and just state where Justice, Fairness & Equity shall reign, noting that the group has aligned itself with the position of Rivers State APC and her supreme Leader, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Ameachi, the Honourable Minister of Transportation in pushing for a power shift to the Riverine come 2023.
In achieving the aforementioned onerous task, the group is not unaware of hitches and challenges, hence the need to collaborate and partner with well meaning individuals and corporate bodies with similar vision.
Chief West was effectively eulogised by the group’s Director Media & Public Communications, Mobile Evang. Nnamdi Nworgwu, who described Chief West as a “Man ordained by God to emancipate the down trodden in society”. This he has demonstrated in his previous assignment as state law maker and in every opportunity he has in serving humanity.
He stated that, it is Divine arrangement that the group’s position for PATRON has remained vacant so far, and Chief West has been finally favored to be conferred/appointed as the group’s PATRON having critically studied his antecedents and confirmed worthy of the position owing to his excellent dispositions.
Chief West was well congratulated not just for dumping PDP but equally accepting his new position as the G23 MANDATE PATRON, officially decorated by the Director General and his Excos.
In response, Chief Hon. Alabo Michael West, expressed great appreciation to the leadership and entire members of the group for finding him worthy of such honor and pledged his unalloyed support for the group even as he advised young people to shun violence and get rich quick syndrome, hinting that, amongst members of he group, he has seen the new crop of Leaders, bold , visionary and courageous to lead the state and nation in distant time.
He equally assured the group not to rest on its oars, as we must keep wooing our friends on the other side of the divide to join the party, noting that soonest, there will be a tsunami in favor of Rivers APC again as plans are in too gear towards translating it into reality.
It was a milestone achievement for the leadership of G23 Mandate as it ended in praise even as we trust in God for greater days ahead.
The best way to encourage good men to do more is the expression of gratitude to them.
