– Governor Nyesom Wike has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was the best to have happened to Nigeria since 1999
– According to Wike, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has put the hope of the country and its citizens in jeopardy
– The governor, however, urged all Nigerians to use their power of the ballot to send the APC packing in 2023
Port Harcourt, Rivers – Nigerians have been asked to vote the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) out of power in the forthcoming general elections in 2023.
Leadership reports that the advice was given by the Rivers governor, Nyesom Wike on Tuesday, June 1, in Port Harcourt, the capital of the state.
Legit.ng gathered that Wike alleged that the APC administration under President Muhammadu Buhari has led Nigeria to a state of hopelessness.
He, however, warned Nigerians never to fall into the lies of the ruling party as the 2023 general election approaches.
Why Nigerians must vote out APC in 2023
The governor, while flagging off of the Etche campus of the Rivers state University at Abara community in Etche local government area of the state, said the APC has nothing to show for.
“Our government can be seen daily commissioning projects and working for the progress of the state but the other party in the state has nothing to show.
“We have a report of projects and progress while their report card is about the killing of people across the country.”
PM News also reports that Wike stated that the establishment of multiple campuses of the university was to achieve part of the vision of the founding fathers of the university.
He noted that the establishment of campuses in other local government areas of the state was to stimulate development and create access to education.
APC has nothing to show as achievements in six years
Wike boasted that, unlike APC, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) makes promises and commits to fulfilling them without giving excuses.
The governor added that his administration is on the first phase of 45 days of project flag-off and commissioning that is unprecedented in the history of the country.
“You know the difference between us and them, is that you can see us every day, moving from one local government to another. It is either we are flagging off or commissioning projects.
“They are not doing so because there’s nothing for them to do. They don’t have anything to show too. We started on the 27th of May, 2021 and we will end the first phase on 10th of July 2021.”
Wike issues threats to flog a former Niger governor
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that a viral online video of Governor Wike threatening to flog an erstwhile governor of Niger state, Babangida Aliyu, after the latter allegedly described the former as a dictator triggered heated reactions from some Nigerians.
It was reported that Wike boasted that while he continues to lead the PDP to victory in many Rivers elections, Aliyu has constantly lost Niger state polls on the platform of the party.
Some people, however, condemned Wike for threatening to flog a former governor of a state under the PDP.
