The governorship candidate of All Progressive Congress  (APC)  in
Rivers state  Tonye Cole said Rivers State under the leadership of
Barrister Nyesom Wike of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)  is
governed by bandits.
Speaking through his  Director of Communications  Ogbonna Nwuke , Mr
Tonye Cole  said  instead of protecting the people of River State, the
state is witnessing the worse cases of insecurity and banditry.
He  said ‘heads of innocent and defenseless persons  were cut off,
whole families wasted by hit squads  while properties  worth millions
of Naira destroyed  in different parts of the state.’
‘three years down the line the governor who has squandered  the
opportunity to write  his name in history books , wants  a second
chance  even  when members of his party the PDP have abandoned him.’
He  said Rivers people cannot afford to gamble with their future
stressing that it was time to hold leaders accountable to their deeds
while in office.
‘we challenge Rivers  state governor  to tell Rivers people  what he
has done with billions of Naira belonging to the state , Wike should
tell Rivers people  where he kept the N117 billion  that the Economic
and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC)  says had stolen from the state.
Wike  should tell Rivers people where he is getting the billions of
Naira  that he is using to buy  them out of their land and  acquire
structures  all over Port Harcourt city’
The  APC  chieftain said governor Wike  has failed woefully  in
improving the health care sector, failed to deliver in the Educational
sector,  failed civil servants , failed pensioners  who worked to lay
the foundation for the growth of the state.
The  Rivers APC campaign organization  said their candidate  Tonye
Cole has a  clear plan, will not allow the heads of Rivers people  to
be severed from their bodies  and used gruesomely  to decorate
roadside in order to induce fear.
It promised that  Cole government will bring back  Security,
Investment, Jobs and Empowerment  and restore the garden city status
with the greening and cleaning of the state capital  and elimination
of black soots.
