APC has failed Nigeria says Wike


▪says Police will not be allowed to hijack electoral materials

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has stated that the All Progressives Congress  ( APC) has failed Nigeria, declaring  that Rivers State  is one of the very few functional states in the country.



The governor stressed that due to APC's  failed governance  style, all the development  structures  of the country  have collapsed, compelling  APC  to rely on security and INEC to rig elections.

Speaking  during the PDP Campaign for Etche/ OmumaFederal Constituency at Afara on Thursday, the governor said that despite the illegal collaboration between APC and Police; the Rivers people will not allow the rigging of the last rerun elections for Etche/ Omuma Federal Constituency.

He explained  that while the PDP is campaigning for victory based on its performance, the APC  leaders  are in Abuja plotting rigging  methods  with INEC and Police.

He said: "APC  has failed  Nigeria.  Nigeria has collapsed.  The only state that is working  in Nigeria  is Rivers.  That is why the APC  cannot  campaign  here.


"We will not allow a situation  where  we will campaign, but APC  will liaise  with  the Police and INEC  to rig. The votes of our people must count.

"Allow democracy  to thrive in Nigeria.  You cannot  continue  to  deceive the people. We shall not allow the police and other  security agencies  hijack  electoral  materials  on Saturday ".


The governor said  that PDP  is popular with Etche people  because of the  projects executed in the area by his administration.

"I live by my promises.  In Etche Local Government Area, it is either I have fulfilled my promises or I am fulfilling  them. I have completed  the  Igwuruta-Chokocho road, while the Chokocho-Umuechem-Ozuzu road, Afara-Nihi-Ulakwo  and Chokocho-Igbo Etche road are ongoing. The Etche people  will continue to enjoy projects from my administration "

He stressed: "Those  who  give excuses in Abuja, have no place in Etche. For me, I have gone beyond being a governor.  I am now Mr Projects.  My attention is on the delivery of quality projects to our people ".

In his address, Senator representing Rivers East Senatorial District, Senator George Sekibo  urged the people of Etche to join the Wike revolution  by ensuring  that PDP  wins the Etche/ OmumaFederal Constituency on Saturday.

Also speaking, Former Acting National Chairman of PDP, Prince Uche Secondus  said that  PDP  is the best option  for the people of Etche/ OmumaFederal Constituency.

Highpoint  of the campaign rally was the public presentation of Chief Jerome Eke as the PDP Candidate for the Etche/ OmumaFederal Constituency and Mr Tony Ejiogu as the PDP Candidate for the Etche State Constituency.
