Nyesom Wike taunted APC on Friday over the poor performance of its governors saying that they measure low compared to governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Governor Wike stated this at the commissioning of dualised Forces Avenue, Olumeni and Harvey Streets in Old Government Residential Area, Port Harcourt by Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal on Friday night.
He stated that the reason why he will spend the entire next week commissioning more projects across the State is to remind Nigerians that PDP offers the only hope to emancipate the country from the appalling poor governance that has characterised the APC led Government since 2015.
To buttress the fact that PDP governors are excelling in their respective states, Governor Wike said in November, he was in Sokoto State where he commissioned a major water project that will serve nine local governments and also laid foundation of a University Teaching Hospital.
As Wike taunted APC he pointed out that the APC has been unable to keep its promises to Nigerians, and has also not confidently executed development projects in the states that they control, which have emboldened Nigerians to reject them.
Speaking further, Governor Wike said the success of his development efforts has silenced the opposition, and they are overwhelmed that he has surpassed their expectations.
“I told you that the only way you can silence the opposition is to do what people would see. You don’t need to join issues with them on the pages of newspapers.
“All of them live here. They will see the streetlight shining and the beautiful road. That is the party that has the interest of the people. “
Inaugurating the road projects, Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, asserted that the performance of Governor Wike has justified the confidence reposed in him by Rivers people who had re-elected him to serve them for a second term.
Tambuwal noting how Wike taunted APC affirmed that PDP governors are doing well in their respective states, described Governor Wike, as a bridge builder, and a special gift to the country.
“Almost two years into your second term, I believe that you have justified their confidence. You have done so exceedingly well.
“As said by the National Chairman of PDP, and re-echoed by my brother, Governor Wike, the governors of PDP in Nigeria are doing well in their respective states. We are all doing our best to deliver on our promises and to provide good governance.
“We must continue to do that, not only to justify the confidence of the people, but also, as a mark of gratitude to God Almighty.”
National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, said since the roads were first built by the colonial masters, no government had given them serious attention until this intervention by Governor Wike.
“You are one of the shining light of our party because your good works speaks for itself. I don’t think another governor or governors of the other party can really compete with the governors of PDP. Your Excellency, the chairman of governors forum, you see that our governors are making us very proud and we are very proud of them and waiting on the line to takeover in 2023.”
