Governor Wike Speaks On How APC Govt Promised And Failed NigeriansGovernor, Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has called on Nigerians to vote out the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress, APC, in 2019.
The reason the Governor gave was that the APC-led Federal Government has failed to use the resources at its disposal to improve the lives of the people.
Wike who spoke during the annual harvest of Christian Universal Church, Port Harcourt, the state capital over the weekend, said Nigerians must use their votes to commence the revival of the country.
Speaking through his Chief of Staff, Chukwuemeka Woke, Governor Wike said “At the centre, judge them by the promises they made, which they have failed to fulfil. The APC federal government cannot be trusted with another four years.
“They said that they will make one dollar to one naira. Instead, it moved from the 160 Naira they met to close to 500 Naira before coming down to 370 Naira to a dollar.
“They claimed they will reduce the price of a litre of petrol to N42, but, today, it has risen to N145. We have the worst unemployment crisis in the country, as millions have lost their jobs and the infrastructural sector has been abandoned. Nothing is working in the country.
“It is even worse because the failed APC federal government has allowed insecurity to claim the lives of several thousand in the Middle Belt. Several indigenes were killed in Benue, Plateau, Taraba and Nasarawa states by rampaging herdsmen”.
