The race to Rivers State’s seat of political power will soon take a new dimension as one of the Rivers State’s sons and trusted Kalabari political leader, Ojukaye Flag Amachree, is preparing to throw his hat into the ring for the service of his people come 2023 governorship election. Although he has not announced his aspiration, but his body language since 2019 when he was the caretaker Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) Rivers State Chapter and his total withdrawal from public space has shown that he has something up his sleeves to offer his good people of Rivers State.
Irrespective of the crises rocking his APC, he is such a hardworking politician, who while he was elected Chairman of Asari Toru Local Government Area justified his political mandate by rendering quality services to his people with verifiable projects that stunned the then Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.
He electrified rural communities and offered scholarships to indigent students in tertiary institutions. Ojukaye Flag Amachree is one man, who is fearless with great grassroots support across Rivers state. Thus, during his days as Chairman of APC in Rivers State, he mobilized party members and closely watched the Governorship position through political engineering that saw a midnight switchover to another political party as a vehicle to avert the legal infraction instituted by Senator Magnus Abe-led supporters against that led by Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi as Leader of the party in the state.
For one Ojukaye Flag Amachree hails from Rivers West senatorial district and his political leadership under Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has the preponderance of looking towards zoning the governorship seat to Riverine Communities. He was brought up in the inner Port Harcourt, Diobu area known for street wisdom for its dwellers and Ojukaye flag Amachree acquired a lot of such street wisdom and bravados of a grassroot politician that he is.
