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.
