Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is the only party that makes promises and commits to fulfilling them without giving excuses.
The governor stated this during the flag-off ceremony for the construction of Etche Campus of Rivers State University in Abara Town of Etche Local Government Area on Tuesday.
The governor who is known for tackling the Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government urged Nigerians to kick out the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2023.
According to him, the ruling party only has tales of killings, insecurity, kidnappings and unknown gunmen for Nigeria.
He stated that the APC federal government cannot be trusted as shown with the total collapse of security in parts of the country.
The governor said: “Don’t listen to those people who lie to you. Those who cannot provide security for Nigeria. Are you seeing the killings everyday now? Are you not worried about this country. Is there any hope that they can offer to this country again?”
“You know the difference between us and them, is that you can see us everyday, moving from one local government to another. It is either we are flagging-off or commissioning projects.
“They are not doing so because there’s nothing for them to do. They don’t have anything to show too. We started on the 27th of May, 2021 and we will end the first phase on 10th of July 2021,” Wike added.
Speaking further, Wike urged Etche people to back the PDP and deliver more votes to the party that brought development to them.
“Now, we are going to commission Odofur road, but with how many votes, mere seven thousand votes? You need something but you won’t come out and give the votes,” he said.
“When we make promise, we fulfill it. You too, fulfill your own promise. It should be two ways, the party, PDP and you.”
