It has become obvious that the lies and propaganda of the leadership of Rivers State APC is not about to end soon, despite the party being overwhelmingly rejected by the people of the state during the last general elections.
The party lost all the elections because Rivers people were tired of the party’s failed governance, corruption, impunity and destruction of government institutions, lies and politics of deceit.
Therefore, Nigerians should disregard the unbridled use of falsehood and propaganda by the defeated Rivers APC to mislead the public and distract attention from the ungodly looting of state resources and government property by the immediate past administration in the state.
The former governor and his lieutenants left the state in crippling debts, months of unpaid salaries and pensions in a deliberate attempt to frustrate the new administration in the state.
He left an empty treasury with a huge debt burden which he publicly admitted in his last state wide broadcast. Already, Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has settled down to get Rivers State working again. In two weeks, he has revived the state judiciary, revived the state legislature and has commenced the process of strengthening all comatose government institutions in the state.
He has commenced the rehabilitation of Port Harcourt roads under the Operation Zero Potholes programme and has started the cleaning up of Port Harcourt City after the immediate past administration left the city in a huge mess due to the N1.8billion debt in owed refuse contractors over four months.
The Wike administration has awarded contracts for key state roads in all the senatorial districts of the state and work will commence shortly. Governor Wike has also initiated a development framework alongside the organised private sector to revive the state’s economy battered by the corruption and inefficiency of the immediate past administration.
The N10billion loan approved for the Rivers State Government by the State House of Assembly is targeted at facilitating the immediate revival of the state and the commencement of a rebuilding process promised the people of the state by their beloved governor. The scheme of the Rivers State APC to use their ill-gotten wealth from their dastardly corruption and theft of state resources to distract the Wike administration through sponsored falsehood has failed.
