Rivers All Progressives Congress (APC) after critical examination of Governor Nyesom Wike’s misfortune administration in Rivers State has resolved to embark on a rescue mission to salvage Rivers State and her people before he succeeds to make the state a laughing stock and bankrupt.
The party in a statement circulated on Sunday in Port Harcourt by Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, the Media Consultant to Dr Davies Ibiamu Ikanya the State Chairman of Rivers APC to media organizations said as long as “any right thinking Rivers State is concerned Wike is a disaster as exemplified by many of his misguided steps that he took to decimate most of the feats of Amaechi which if he has assisted to build upon would have turned the fortunes of the State around.”
The party noted with sadness how Wike programmed and supervised the decimation of every agency in Rivers State.
“Today, both the due Process Unit, the unit responsible for ensuring transparency in Public Procurement; the Rivers State Sustainable Development Agency (RSSDA), the agency responsible for the training of present and future manpower needs of the State and the Rivers State Scholarship Board another important agency all have completely failed since Wike’s assumption of office,” it added.
The party lamented that today the educational system under the watch of Governor Nyesom Wike is nothing to write home about as most of our students now study under deplorable situation while locking model schools constructed by Amaechi’s administration.
“Wike’s administration stands out as the only administration since the creation of the State in 1967 that has refused to provide Scholarships for Rivers youths despite receiving billions of naira exposing his hatred for the future of our youths,” it added.
The party further stated that under the terrible administration of Governor Wike, Rivers state stands out as the worst in areas of unemployment with highest unemployment rate of 41.82 per cent in the country in the third quarter of 2017 according to the latest data released in Abuja by the National Bureau of Statistics.
“This implies that for every 10 persons in Rivers four are without anything doing. Affirming the position of the National Bureau of Statistics the party notes that under Wike’s evil administration no Rivers State Indigene have been employed into the Civil Service instead those employed like the 13,200 Teachers employed by Amaechi were sacked. What a shameful feat?”
