APC’s dbad governance has divided Nigeria – Gov Wike

Published

on

The Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, said on Tuesday that the bad governance of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had left Nigeria terribly divided.

Wike, who stated that the country needed people who would promote peace through quality leadership, added that Nigeria was currently bedevilled by myriad of problems.

The governor spoke during the commencement of the reconstruction/rehabilitation of Abuloma, Fimie, Ozuboko and Amadi-Ama community roads in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

Wike said that Nigerians were deceived into voting for the APC, pointing out that in 2019, no Nigerian would be deceived by the empty promises of the party.

“Nigeria is divided because of the APC leadership style. Wherever you go today in this country, there is one problem or the other. Is that how Nigerians want it? Certainly not! We need people who will promote peace through quality leadership.

“The change they said they are bringing is fake change. No person resident in Rivers State and sees what we are suffering from the APC Federal Government will ever support the APC,” he added.

The governor, who assured the people of the state that his administration would continue to deliver projects that would improve their living conditions, maintained that the reconstruction cum rehabilitation of Abuloma, Fimie, Ozuboko and Amadi-Ama community roads would be completed in six months.

Wike said the poor nature of the community roads in the heart of Port Harcourt had brought to the fore the failure of the immediate past administration.

The governor urged the contractor handling the road reconstruction projects to carry the people of the host communities along, through sub-contracts and employment opportunities.

On the flooding of many parts of the state, the governor said his administration would take steps to stop recurrence.

He appealed to residents to desist from building houses on waterways, noting that resolving the flood challenge would require everyone to work in unison.

PDP Will Return To Power in 2019, Rivers Gov Assures Nigerians After Supreme Court judgment

The representative of the CCECC, Mr. Robinson Ndiokho, assured the governor that the company would construct the roads in line with the approved specifications.

But reacting to the governor’s claim, the state APC Publicity Secretary, Mr. Chris Finebone, said Wike was still basking in the euphoria of the recent Supreme Court judgement that came his way.

He explained that at the right time, very few of the likes of Wike and other PDP leaders would have the presence of mind to speak to Nigerians and at the same time answer the mountain of corruption cases in various courts.

Finebone said, “The APC will list over 60 PDP leaders with their long list of alleged plundering of the nation’s resources that happened over the years, especially during the Jonathan presidency. Nigerians and the world will see these people for who they are.

“The present bravado you see in Wike and other PDP leaders will pale into insignificance as 2019 approaches. Their sins will seal their lips before Nigerians. They will be free, but unable to campaign. The wrong they have done will go after them.”

Why the man in Aso Rock is not Buhari – Ex-APC spokesperson, Abdullahi

Former National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bolaji Abdullahi, has shared his reasons the Muhammadu Buhari Nigerians voted into power in 2015 is not the same President at Aso Rock today.

Abdullahi, who was part of the mass defection from the ruling party, called on Nigerians to jump out of Buhari’s train, adding that the man presiding over the affairs of the nation today was not the leader Nigerians trooped out enmasse to elect in 2015.

He said this Monday in a chat with Vanguard in reaction to the vote of no confidence passed on President Buhari on Sunday by leaders of the Northern Elders’ Forum.

The Director, Communications and Strategies of the PDP, Presidential Campaign Organisation pointed out that he was not joining the cloning debate, but insisted however, that Buhari had dumped the principles for which he was widely adored.

He said, “Some of us risked our political careers to rally round Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 and today we have realised that we are in a one-chance vehicle. But I say that having realized where we are, it is time to get down from that one-chance vehicle.

“The Northern Elders Forum was one of the strongest supporters of Buhari in 2015 but they have now realised that the Buhari we have today is the not the Buhari they voted for in 2015.

“The Buhari most of us risked our political careers for was the Buhari whose memory we carried with us since 1983. That Buhari had zero tolerance for corruption and was a strong -willed leader.

“But the Buhari of today has been receiving corrupt people into his party who are hoping he will give them cover. Today, the position of the Northern Elders Forum has vindicated some of us who saw the wisdom in leaving the party (APC) to join the crusade to rescue Nigeria.”
