- Governor Wike is out for the APC again as he lambasted the party over its alleged failed promises
- According to number 1 man in Rivers state, the ruling party has started making some promises to people ahead of the 2023 election
- The governor went ahead to praise his administration, saying it has attracted great development to the oil-rich region
Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers state, has said his administration’s achievements have silenced the All Progressives Congress (APC) and other political parties in the state.
The governor noted that ahead of the 2023 general election, the APC has again started making false promises to the people.
Some of the "false promises" he accused the party of making were that, it would construct a University of Transport, develop a deep seaport and industrial park in the state.
Wike made this assertion during the reception organised by the Rivers state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to welcome thousands of APC members back into the party.
Those who defected to PDP included a former director of finance and administration of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Henry Ogiri; APC south-south administrative officer, Gloria Boma; Lolo Ibieneye, and Alhaji Hassan Douglas.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that as controversies continue to follow the killings in Oyigbo in Rivers state, Governor Wike was asked to tread with caution so as not to escalate the situation.
It was reported that the call was made by the Anambra state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) on Thursday, November 12, in Onitsha in a press briefing.
The chairman, Rev. Dr. Ndubuisi John, said Wike needs to avoid generalising his anger towards the Igbo race. He urged him to govern with the wisdom of God as the shepherd of the state.
He said it is wrong for Wike to show his anger towards the Igbo race. Going further, he encouraged him to act maturely as a governor who is occupying an exalted position.
In other news, southeast governors who are concerned over the recent activities of IPOB members in the region held a meeting with Governor Wike in Rivers on Sunday, November 8.
