APC: You will be free but unable to talk in 2019
Paul Obiajunwo, PortHarcourt
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that the bad governance of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has left the country terribly divided.
Speaking during the official flag-off of the reconstruction/rehabilitation of Abuloma, Fimie, Ozuboko and Amadi-Ama community roads in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, Governor Wike said: “Nigeria is divided because of the APC Leadership style”.
He stated: “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 governor said that Nigerians were deceived into voting for the APC, pointing out that in 2019 no Nigerian will be deceived by the empty promises of the party.
“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 APC”, Governor Wike said.
The governor assured the people of the state that his administration will continue to deliver projects that will improve their living condition.
He said the reconstruction/rehabilitation of Abuloma, Fimie, Ozuboko and Amadi -Ama community roads will be completed in six months.
He said the very poor nature of the community roads in the heart of Port Harcourt brings to the fore the failures of the immediate past administration.
The governor urged the contractor 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 reiterated that his administration will take steps to stop future re-occurrence.
He appealed to residents to desist from building houses on waterways, noting that resolving the flood challenge requires everyone to work in unison.
Representative of the CCECC, Mr. Robinson Ndiokho assured the governor that the company will construct the community roads in line with the approved specifications.
Caretaker Committee Chairman of Port Harcourt City Local Government Area, Mr Chima Orlu said though Governor Wike met an empty treasury, he has delivered on his mandate.
Responding the APC State Publicity Secretary, Chris Finebone yesterday said Governor Wike and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders in the state are getting confuse as 2019 is approaching.
Finebone said: “ The present bravado you see in Governor 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 talk; they will be free but unable to campaign. The wrong they have done will go after them.”
