From Blessing Ibunge, Port Harcourt
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has stated the leading All Progressives Congress (APC) has failed Nigerians, owing to the challenges facing the country.
Governor Wike, who stated Thursday, when the Rivers State Executive of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) paid him a courtesy visit at Government House, Port Harcourt recalled how the APC promised Nigerians of solving most challenging national issues but has continued to give excuses for their failure.
He said “Nigeria is hoping for PDP, APC has failed Nigeria. This is no more time for promises. You have promised and you have failed. There is nothing to try you again.
“Nigerians have realised that it is better they stay with the PDP that has the interest of Nigeria at heart than a Party that gives excuses every day.
“You know there are problems in Nigeria and you made promises, asking Nigerians to vote for you and for five years, nothing has changed”, he stated.
Governor Wike, who listed a number of his administrations giant projects told the delegation that his attention is focused on governance and delivering service to the people.
“Let me say clearly that this is no time for politics. My concern now is to make sure we deliver all the promises we have made to the people of the state. When politics comes, we will have our report card to show the people.”
The governor, who endorsed the action plan as presented by the party executive, urged them to show more love to the party by being loyal and committed.
Rivers State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ambassador Desmond Akawor said the Party has passed a vote of confidence on Governor Wike for the various people- oriented projects executed in the 23 local government areas of the state.
He noted the swift response of the governor to contain the spread of COVID-19 pandemic in the state, as well as the restoration of the glory of the State.
