Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike says ahead of the 2023 general election, the APC has again started making false promises to construct a University of Transport, develop a deep sea port and industrial park in the State.
The governor also bemoaned what he described as the marginalisation of Rivers State by the Federal Government and regretted that several years after the Federal Government awarded the N120 Billion Bodo-Bonny Road, it has failed to provide its counterpart funding, allowing only the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) to finance the project.
Governor Wike, made these assertions during a reception organised by the Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to welcome some members of the APC to PDP.
“By next year, political activities will kick start, when will they build infrastructure again? Somebody will come and tell you people, Federal Government has approved industrial pack; they have approved deep sea port in Bonny,” he said.
Wike added that;
“Are things better today? So why do you allow people to tell you lies. How long can you continue to listen to the lies of the All Progressives Congress. They have nothing for Nigerians. It is unfortunate that there was a conspiracy to remove a Niger Delta person as President.”
The Governor further noted;
“Look at since they started the Bonny Bodo road, what has happened? As we speak, Federal Government has not released their counterpart funding for that road. Now, NLNG said let us do it and then deduct it from the tax we are going to pay to the federal government. Is it how they have been doing in other states?”.
