Gitoki - Gatsibo, 20 April 2012

President Kagame today told residents of Gatsibo District, Eastern Province, that Rwandans should not look up to others for assistance, and if they have to, it should only be to help build a firm foundation for them to stand on their own in future. President Kagame was speaking to thousands of citizens gathered at Gakiri Primary School grounds in Gitoki sector, following a visit to Augustin Rukondo, one of the most successful farmers in the District and Ndatemwa rice processing factory which has processing capacity of 2.5 tonnes per hour.

President Kagame said that with the right mentality, anyone can achieve whatever they dream of. He encouraged Gatsibo residents to work in cooperatives because when people pool their efforts together, they are destined to achieve far much more than they would achieve working as individuals. President Kagame pointed out that the progress seen everywhere in the Eastern province is evidence that a lot more can be achieved if people put their minds to it.

President Kagame receives Nigeria South-South States Governors

Kigali, 17 April 2012

President Kagame today received in his office Governors of the Nigerian states of Delta and Cross River, Dr. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan and Senator Liyel Imoke. The Governors travelled to Rwanda to invite President Kagame to the South-South Economic Summit, scheduled for the end of this month in Delta State.

Speaking to the press after the meeting, Dr. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan said that being a region where 95% of Nigeria’s oil is produced, the South-South region should come together and form an integrated economic development.

“We held a summit two years ago in Cross River State and we are holding another one at the end of this month and believe we should invite a leader who has experience in crisis and post-crisis management. Because of the oil, the South-South region has had its share of crises we would like President Kagame to come and share with us how we can depart from crisis situations and become an investment destination.”
