Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has asked governors elected on the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC) to accept responsibility for the party’s failure at the centre.
He said the APC led Federal Government has failed to ensure the security of lives and property of citizens despite security forming the basis of its promise during the election.
Governor Wike said this during the inauguration ceremony of two roads including the Woji and Obagi roads in GRA Phase 2 in Obio/Akpor Local Government Areas, constructed by his administration which was inaugurated by Oyo State Governor, Oluseyi Makinde, on Wednesday.
The Rivers State governor said the APC has failed to deliver on its mandate as the country has retrogressed on the watch of the ruling party. He claimed that it the country was to be truly democratic, nobody would be a proud member of APC anymore.
He said, “I hear the Progressives Governors’ Forum saying there is insecurity. Who is responsible? They should come out openly and say the party in power has failed. Nigerians gave a mandate to APC at the Federal Government level and, therefore, they must own up that they have failed Nigerians.
“Everything has collapsed in the country. Security has collapsed. The economy has collapsed. There is nothing working in the country. Today, all over Nigeria, there is insecurity everywhere.
“The other day, in Katsina State, they took about 400. The next day, they said they took 84. Now, again, they said they have taken a village head, the wife and 14 people in Katsina State.
“When there was a problem in this state (Rivers), about the level of kidnapping, I shouted, but nobody listened to us. They said it was politics and that we were killing APC people. I said when you introduce politics to security the consequences will be great.
“Now, it is everywhere. Until they come to apologise to Rivers State that they are sorry for what they have done to us, then, God will forgive all of them,” Wike said.
Speaking on his achievements, Wike said he has not disappointed Rivers people who gave him their mandate to improve the quality of living in the state, upgrade infrastructure, guarantee the security of lives and property.
“We are proud because we can come out and say to the people of Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor local governments this is what PDP has done for you by the projects carried out in these two local governments.
“Also, we can go to other local governments and say look, vote for us. If they ask us why do you say we should vote for you, we will show proofs,” Wike said
