The executive governor of Rivers State, Barr. Nyesom Wike, has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of riding onto power through false promises.
The governor disclosed this when he was speaking at a forum where he received a former Executive Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NNDC) and three others who defected from the All progressives congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The governor in his speech noted that the All Progressive Congress (APC) has not been able to fulfill most of its electoral promises five years after coming into office. The governor noted that the All progressive congress (APC) has shamed Nigerians and that people are not interested in the party or what they have to say.
The governor said that the administration of the ruling party has been filled with nothing but excuses and blame game which has kept many Nigerians disinterested in the party.
The governor noted that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will change the narrative and things will be better and urged Nigerians not to continue in listening to the lies of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
