The Rivers State Governor, Barrister Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has declared that the alleged 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 would 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 would continue to deliver projects that would improve their living conditions.
He said the reconstruction/rehabilitation of Abuloma, Fimie, Ozuboko and Amadi -Ama community roads would be completed in six months, adding that the very poor nature of the community roads in the heart of Port Harcourt brought 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 would take steps to stop future re-occurrence.
He appealed to residents to desist from building houses on waterways, noting that resolving the flood challenge required everyone to work in unison. Representative of the CCECC, Mr. Robinson Ndiokho, assured the governor that the company would 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.
