With the extension of road projects from Port-Harcourt to the rural areas of Rivers State, the mutters of the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC have ceased, Nyesom Wike said on Tuesday. According to Wike, APC cannot talk again because of the projects he has extended throughout the state.
The governor spoke at the inauguration of the Rumuekini/Aluu Road, traversing Obio/Akpor and Ikwerre Local Government Areas, performed by former President of the Senate, Anyim Pius Anyim.
According to the governor, his administration has never discriminated against any section of the state because developmental projects are delivered to every local government area.
“I have said, those of you and your communities who stood firm when somebody thought he was god. Because you committed to following us, there is nothing that will be given to you that will be too much.
“Nobody that will succeed me will complete any of my projects because I will complete all my projects before I go. I won’t leave any project burden for my successor. When the new person comes, let him initiate his projects.
Wike: Why APC Cannot Talk Again
“Before now, APC said we are doing roads only in Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor Local Government. Now, they can’t talk again. We have commissioned projects in Khana, Gokana, Eleme. The other day we were in Akuku-Toru, yesterday we were in Emohua. We are a government for every Rivers person and every local government.”
The governor said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) knows there are problems and it is solving them with completed projects and vows not to dump the party. But on the contrary, he noted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) government that promised to solve the problems of Nigeria before assumption of power has kept giving excuses to justify its failure.
“I have told anybody who cares to listen. We are not those who are afraid that people will come after them so they want to run into another party. I’m not running to anywhere.
“How can I run from success to problem. People should ordinarily go from problem to success not the other way round. Rivers State is an asset to PDP.
“We have told Nigerians that PDP is the only hope of this country. It is a party that will make promise and fulfil it. We are proud to roll out projects everyday and this is the second week of project commissioning.”
