Amaechi carries his cross, begs for forgiveness



Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers state on Friday carried the cross of crucifixion to mark the Good Friday celebration, in commemoration of Jesus’ crucifixion.

Later in the day, the governor in a pre- election broadcast in Port Harcourt appealed to those he has offended with his actions and inactions in the state as governor to forgive him, explaining that he acted in the interest of the state.

He also urged people of the state to shun violence during the coming governorship election, as elections were for the good of the state, which should be the concern of all.

“As we prepare for that election, we have a little time to reflect on the issues at stake. It must be about Rivers state. It must be about its progress and the prosperity of all who live here and are from here.

“It must be about development, good governance, peace and security. We need to stand firm as a people for what we believe in”, he said.

He also called on the youth to resolve not to be instruments in the hands of politicians who don’t wish the people well.
