After Accusation As Buhari’s Mole, Wike Lists FG’s Achievements Since 2015
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has listed the “achievements” of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government since assuming office in 2015.
He made this known at yesterday’s Independence Day parade in Port Harcourt.
According to Wike, the Federal Government under Buhari “has done nothing to advance the promise of independence, except failures, excuses, intimidation, insecurity, stealing of elections and weakening of democratic institutions, including the National Assembly, the judiciary, and the security agencies”.
This is coming three days after a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) youth leader, Deji Adeyanju accused Wike of being President Buhari’s mole planted to destroy the party.
Addressing hundreds of government officials, civil servants, students, and others at the parade, Wike said, “After over three years in power, the federal government has done nothing to advance the promise of independence, except failures, excuses, intimidation, insecurity, stealing of elections and weakening of democratic institutions, including the National Assembly, the judiciary, and the security agencies.
“These are difficult times and our nation is on the edge. Democracy is at the crossroads and good governance in abeyance.”
The Rivers governor added, “The economy has remained comatose, and is reportedly receding again with associated economic consequences and hardship on ordinary Nigerians.
“Never in our history have Nigerians been subjected to untold sufferings as a result of the direct, erratic and ill-conceived economic policies and decisions of the Federal Government.
“Under their watch, our beloved country is now certified as the world’s headquarters of abject poverty, with over 87 million people living below two dollars per day.”
He advised Nigerians to use 2019 as the opportunity to set the Federal Government on the right path by voting for the PDP.
“We need leaders who will not interfere with our collective rights to live as free citizens and pursue our goals and dreams in peace, security and happiness.
“As 2019 beckons, with promise, I hope Nigerians will all rise up to the challenge of leadership and vote for the candidate that would restore our faith in the promise of independence,” he said.
