Chief Dumo Lulu Briggs shared a moment of insightful discussion with the respected women leaders of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State. He took time to share his experiences and progressive ideas in a wisdom filled aural presentation made at a round table meeting in the city of Port Harcourt.
Responding to the insightful speech, the APC women leader, Evangelist Caroline Nagbo, thanked Dumo Lulu Briggs for recognizing and also deeming it fit to interface with the women of APC in Rivers State. She extolled the humility and altruism displayed by Dumo Lulu Briggs and expressed deep gratitude to him for understanding the plight of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, and appreciating the fact that he has made great sacrifices for the growth and development of Rivers State. The woman leader who spoke deeply about the sufferings of Rotimi Amaechi in the hands of detractors whose trade is to cast down rather than lift up, declared that the leader of the party believes in development and the rising of Rivers people. She stated that Amaechi’s resolve to channel resources towards the cause of development among other things brought him so much persecution and sufferings.
She recounted the sufferings that APC women have gone through simply because they stood by their convictions in 2015 and beyond. She stated with all sense of pride that despite the obvious challenges and temptations, no APC woman jumped ship; they remain intact and solidly behind Rt. Hon Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi. She described Amaechi as one with great vision for women and stated that the vision came to a manifestation through the invaluable support of Dame Judith Amaechi, wife of his Excellency Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi; The former Executive Governor of Rivers State, the current minister of transportation and the leader of the All Progressive Congress Rivers State Chapter.
“Dame Judith ensured that there was an adequate representation of women in all aspects of governance. Her husband granted those wishes and positioned women strategically. The women of APC are solidly behind Rotimi for being a good leader and for recognizing the sufferings of women. The leader himself has suffered so much persecution in the hands of detractors but he is God’s anointed; he shall always emerge victorious.
We are happy with you because your coming into APC didn’t bring sorrow and confusion. Your method of entrance; recognizing the grass root, the ward executive and units officers, prove that indeed, you are a true politician. Your membership in APC has added value to the party. What is more exciting to us is that you are supportive of our leader, you are loyal and obedient to him, praying with him and committed to the objective of building and strengthening the party. We appreciate your good role sir. God will bless you for recognizing the pains that we have all gone through. We believe in the vision of Rotimi, and will follow him all the way. It is written that when a man humbles himself, God lifts him up. We are touched by your level of humility. Humility is the way of our leader, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi. Our leader is a very compassionate man and your remarks about him today tells us that you are that proverbial child that sits at the feet of his father and learns wisdom. You are loyal, obedient and supportive, God will reward you equally. She said.
