The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State has accused the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP-led administration of Governor Nyesom Wike of lacking the needed prowess to lead the state.
The APC governorship candidate in the last general elections in the state, Dakuku Peterside, stated this when APC faithful gathered at Okehi community, the headquarters of Etche Local Government Area of the state
Peterside, who is now the Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, said Governor Wike is only interested in borrowing money to host what he called irrelevant events while many civil servants are suffering.
He said the Government of Wike is immersed in deceit and “fraud”.
Dakuku said, “Wike’s Government is a government of wayo. Government of wuruwuru. Government of 419. They went to bring court order. Fake court order. An order of deceit.
“Let me tell you this, and you can take it to the bank, no amount of well organized lies can dissuade Rivers people. We are resolute, we want good governance.
“In just one year we constructed Peter Odili road and yet they went to resurface a one kilometer road and went to bring a Governor from Sokoto to come and commission it.
“I challenge this fraudulent government to show us one project they have conceived and completed in the last one year.”
Speaking on behalf of the APC candidates for Rivers East Senatorial District, Chief Andrew Uchendu assured supporters of the APC that the rescheduled rerun elections expected to hold in October will provide relief to the people of Rivers state.
Reacting to the comments of the APC leaders, the Rivers state Publicity Secretary of PDP, Samuel Wonosike described the allegations as falsehood and urged Rivers people to disregard it.
Wonosike maintained that the people of Rivers state are happy with the developmental projects put in place by Governor Nyesom Wike.
He however described the APC rally as a charade just as he insisted that Rivers state is a PDP state.
