Lagos - The aggrieved All Progressives Congress (APC) has described Nyesom Wike’s term as governor of Rivers State a disaster.
“The first one week of Wike’s administration has vindicated our well-known stand that he is not prepared for governance and would be a disaster if he accidentally found himself in power – as has now happened courtesy of his unjust declaration as governor by Rivers INEC. His first seven days in office prove beyond reasonable doubt that he is not ready for governance,”
APC State Chairman, Dr Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, stated from Port Harcourt.
Ibamu accused Wike of running a “motor park administration.”
“What is being witnessed in Rivers State under Wike’s watch makes the heart to bleed; it is, for want of a better phrase, motor park type of administration. While it is true that Wike never had a programme for Rivers State, we had expected him to attempt to implement the Roadmap for Rivers Development, which he copied from our governorship candidate, Dr. Dakuku Peterside, but he could not, as a poor student, demonstrate an idea of what governance is all about.”\

The APC is contesting the election of Wike, the People’s Democratic Party member, as governor, citing irregularities during the polls.
The Election Petition Tribunal is handling the appeal.
“Meanwhile, we wish to advise Chief Wike to stop chasing shadows and cease his unwarranted attacks on Rt. Hon. Amaechi, who by the grace of God has become an institution in the politics of Nigeria and hundreds of Wikes cannot run him down,” Ikanya said.
“Let us warn that any further disparaging attacks on the person of Amaechi will no longer be tolerated as we have enough materials with which to rubbish Chief Wike,” Rivers APC stated. If he doubts this, let him call Amaechi in any of his misguided utterances again and see the exposure of his evil acts.”
