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.”

New accuser claims Brett Kavanaugh put his private part in her face at Yale

New accuser claims Brett Kavanaugh put his private part in her face at Yale
A new woman has accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. The new accuser claims Kavanaugh exposed himself without her consent during their college years at Yale.

The New Yorker published a bombshell story on Sunday ahead of Kavanaugh’s Thursday hearing in D.C., where he’s already set to face-off against Christine Blasey Ford who has accused him of a sexual assault when they were both in high school.

The sexual assault claims brought against Brett Kavanaugh led to the Twitter hashtag #WhyIDidn’tReport after US President Donald Trump defended him and asked his accuser why she didn’t speak up years ago (read here).

In the latest accusation made against Brett Kavanaugh, a woman named Deborah Ramirez claims Kavanaugh put his exposed penis in her face at a dorm party during their freshman year at Yale sometime between 1983 and ’84. She says she got drunk during a drinking game, and that at one point a male classmate (not Kavanaugh) pointed a dildo at her.

In this new story, written by Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer, the woman says soon after she was on the floor, foggy and slurring her words when she says she remembers seeing a real penis smack dab in her face. She tells the New Yorker she recalls other students telling her to kiss it. Ramirez says she pushed the person away, touching the penis in the process, and then saw Kavanaugh standing next to her, pulling his pants up and laughing.

She says she also remembers another student shouting down the hall, “Brett Kavanaugh just put his penis in Debbie’s face.” Ramirez says she specifically remembers hearing his full name.

Ramirez admits that parts of her memory on the alleged incident are fuzzy, but the New Yorker notes “After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney” Ramirez felt confident in the details of her story.

As for Kavanaugh, he tells the New Yorker:

This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple. I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name–and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building–against these last-minute allegations.

A White House spokesperson also expressed support for Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh is still waiting to be confirmed to the Supreme Court as President Trump’s latest nominee.
