Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has called on Nigerians to ensure that they vote out the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government during the 2019 general election.
Wike, who made the call while speaking at the annual harvest of Christian Universal Church, Port Harcourt, said that the Nigerians must use their votes to commence the revival of the country.
The governor regretted that the APC-led Federal Government has failed to use Federal resources at her disposal to improve the lives of the people.
He said: “At the centre, judge them by the promises they made, which they have failed to fulfill. 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 42naira, 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 thousands in the Middle Belt. Several indigenes were killed in Benue, Plateau, Taraba and Nasarawa States by rampaging herdsmen.”
Wike, who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Hon. Chukwuemeka Woke, said that he deserves a second term because he revived a state that was crippled by the immediate past APC Administration by ensuring that the people benefit from good governance.
The governor stated that he inherited unpaid salaries and pensions, decayed infrastructure and abandoned projects, but with prudent management of resources the state’s economy is on the right track.
He said: “I promised to construct roads and I have constructed roads. I promised quality healthcare and I have reconstructed General Hospitals and completed Zonal hospitals. I promised to reclaim lands for the riverine communities and we have done that for many communities.
“I promised to revive the education sector and more than 300 schools across the state have felt our impact. Things can only get better in my second term.”
The governor, who thanked the Christian community for their unflinching support which has led to the success of his administration, noted that the people of Rivers State rejected the negative stories peddled by the opposition in 2015.
