Yenagoa—Barr. Etifa Ganrenowei Jonathan, a stalwart of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa state has congratulated Senator Heineken Lokpobiri on his nomination as a Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
He described the appointment as a reward for competence and consistency which he insists Lokpobiri represents.
Ganrenowei in a congratulatory message sent to mangrovepen.ng noted that the appointment is well-deserved given the former senator’s wealth of experience and commitment to the success of the APC both at the state and national levels.
The Ekeremor-born politician and former House of Assembly aspirant under the APC expressed confidence that Lokpobiri will discharge his ministerial duties “meritoriously in line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of Mr. President.”
He further prayed for God’s enablement for Lokpobiri to serve Nigeria, Bayelsa and the APC Family well.
“The appointment is heartwarming and I am very much thankful to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for rewarding the competence and consistency which Lokpobiri represents.
“I have no doubt that Lokpobiri who has been a senator and minister will undertake his duties meritoriously in line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of Mr. President.
“With Lokpobiri as a minister, Bayelsa State is sure of enjoying immense dividends of democracy under the Tinubu administration, knowing how patriotic he has been over the years,” the statement partly reads.
Etifa equally expressed that Lokpobiri’s emergence as a minister is a big booster to the APC in the forthcoming Bayelsa guber election.
“My prayer is for God to give him the enablement to serve Nigeria, Bayelsa and the APC Family diligently as always.”
