2019: APC Has No Electoral Value, Says Wike


Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has declared that aside the plans by the the All Progressive Congress (APC) to rely on the security agencies to rig elections in 2019, the party has no electoral value.

He said the disgraceful poor performance of the party has totally devalued it.
The governor said Nigerians have discovered that the APC is full of empty promises, with no accompanying implementation.

Inaugurating the Igbogo road in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area yesterday, Wike said: “Several promises, not one fulfilled. I have challenged the APC to come to Rivers State and say what they have done.

“If not for the dependence on security agencies for rigging of elections, no APC member will come forward to contest elections.”
The governor said where democracy is practised in line with the rule of law, PDP members would have gone to sleep, knowing they would walk over APC in 2019.

On developments in Rivers State, the governor said while other state ended their democracy day on Monday, his administration would continue the inauguration of several projects in the coming weeks.

He said for the people of Akpor Kingdom, the administration has executed projects in all the ten communities of the area.
He informed that the Rivers State Government will start the to reach out to all supporters, which will be in form of direct empowerment.

Commissioner for Works, Iheanyichuwu Bathuel, said the Igbogo road has revived the community, adding value to the residential houses in the area.
The Choba community in appreciation of the new road conferred a chieftaincy title to Wike.
