We will follow president’s leadership on constitution review –Gov. Amaechi

African Examiner
28 September 2011

The chairman of the governor’s forum and Governor of Rivers state, Chibuike
Amaechi says the forum is focusing on the constitution review but added “we
will follow the president leadership on the review.”

The governor stated this in an interview with African Examiner in Washington
DC while attending Business and Investment forum organized by Woodrow
Wilson center.

On the single term of six years recently suggested by the president, Gov.
Amaechi said the governor’s forum is yet to take stand on it.

“I cannot make comment on the single term for the president and the governors.
I have to wait for the governor’s forum to take a position on the issue.” He stated
In another development, Gov. Amaechi stated that the recent investment forum
between him, US investors and five of his colleagues from Ogun, Benue, Cross
Rivers, Imo and Katsina state was very successful.

His words “we were well received at the Woodrow Wilson center; it was more
about enlightened forum to expose what is the situation now in Nigeria.

“After that, we moved a step forward to meet with Corporate Council for Africa
(CCA) and some other agencies. After speaking with them, few investors are
coming to Port Harcourt. The area of investment is open; it is what we put on
the table that they will review.

“Education, health, transportation, agriculture and water are the key areas we
will like the investors to focus and see what they can give to us in Rivers.”
Gov. Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers state
