Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that aside the planned reliance on the security agencies to rig elections in 2019, the All Progressive Congress (APC) has no electoral value.
He said the disgraceful poor performance of the APC has totally devalued the party. He said Nigerians have discovered that the APC is full of empty promises, with no accompanying implementation.
Commissioning the Igbogo road in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area on Tuesday, Governor Wike said: “Several promises, not one fulfilled. I have challenged the APC to come to Rivers State and say what they have done.
“If not for the dependence on security agencies for rigging of elections, no APC member will come forward to contest elections “.
The governor said where democracy is practiced in line with the rule of law, PDP members would have gone to sleep, knowing they would walk over APC in 2019.
On developments in Rivers State, Governor Wike said while other state ended their democracy day on Monday, his administration will continue the commissioning of several projects in the coming weeks.
He said that for the people of Akpor Kingdom, the administration has executed projects in all the ten communities of the area.
