The Chairman, Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Bro Felix Obuah, has observed that the people of the State have benefited nothing from the All Progressives Congress, APC, led government since it came to power at the centre.
Describing the development, “as unfortunate, height of irresponsibility and insensitivity to the people’s expectations as well as a failure to deliver its statutory obligations to the citizenry”
The PDP Chairman expressed disappointment that since their appointments, the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi and Director-General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, Dakuku Peterside, who are from the State, have also not been able to initiate any project or empowerment scheme in the State.
Bro Obuah noted that rather than serve as a blessing to the people of Rivers State the appointment of the APC leaders from the State “has become source of woes and anguish, as they have only used such positions to cause crisis and division, doing everything to blackmail the government in the State in their quest to force themselves on the people undemocratically.”
“It is sad, Obuah emphasized, that while APC leaders from other States of the federation are making efforts, using their positions to do something positive and developmental in their respective States, our brothers in the same party, who are even holding top positions at the centre are only bent on destroying our State.”
