The National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said thst instead of joining issues with Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike’s “idle 2019 postulations”, the APC-led administration would concentrate on ongoing efforts to deliver all-inclusive development of the country.

While reacting to predictions made by the governor that his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, will bounce back to power at the centre in 2029, APC said the governor should not try to divert attention from the situation in his state where alleged mass killings and violence are being perpetuated under his watch.

In a statement issued on Wednesday by the National Secretary of APC, Mala-Buni the party said the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is already working assiduously to repair the rot caused by the PDP’s 16-year misrule and pillage of the country’s commonwealth.

The recently assented 2016 National Budget caters for many of the promises made to the Nigerian electorate by the party in the course of the 2015 presidential campaign. This includes the safety net created to cater for the poorest and most vulnerable Nigerians amongst other pro-people developmental policies.
