Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that the challenges facing the nation’s economy is a fallout of the cancellation of all the promises President Muhammadu Buhari made to Nigerians in 2015.
Addressing thousands of Omuma people at the State Primary School, Eberi on Friday, Governor Wike said President Buhari made high sounding promises, which he deliberately refused to keep. He said: “The new name of the APC is All Promises Cancelled. There is no single promise that has been fulfilled by the APC Federal Government. For us in Rivers State, we don’t know if there is a federal government”.
He said that Rivers people would overwhelmingly vote Atiku Abubakar because he has the business and leadership acumen to create employment opportunities and revive the economy.
“Whatever you are doing, on February 16, 2019, come out and vote Atiku Abubakar to revive the economy. Atiku Abubakar is a decent and law-abiding politician, who will develop the country rapidly “, he said.
The governor said under the present dispensation, only PDP states are paying salaries, executing and commissioning projects. He said APC state governors have abandoned their people and refused to pay salaries.
Governor Wike commended Omuma people for their support for PDP, noting that he has kept his promises by providing electricity for 19 communities, construction of a zonal hospital and the ongoing construction of a 17 kilometre road across several communities in the area. He assured them of more developmental projects during his second term.
