Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has opined that the All Progressives Congress, (APC)-led Government has dragged Nigeria 50 years backward due to its poor performance.
Wike also added that Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai was reaping from the evil he plotted against Rivers State in the past.
Wike reportedly disclosed these when the Vice President of the Rotary Club of Port Harcourt, Obiageli Ejezie, led other leaders of the association to the Government House, Port Harcourt, to confer on him the 2019/2020 Good Governance Award for his outstanding achievements in project execution in Rivers State.
Revealing this in a statement by his media aide, Kelvin Ebiri, Wike said, “There can’t be good governance without security and this is based on the rule of law. All of us are living witnesses that in 2015, it was alleged that the government of former President Goodluck Jonathan could not perform.”
He added that, “So, Nigeria needed a change. What has happened to the change? They have taken Nigeria back by 50 years.”
“Now, in order to cause crises in our state, they brought the CP they wanted. At the end of the day, God did not allow them to have their way. But see what is happening in his state now. When you are plotting evil against somebody, evil will visit you. And that is the problem Governor el-Rufai is facing today in Kaduna State,” he added.
Wike also said that, “I remember when I came in 2015, when they were honouring one of their friends as a minister on live television, Channels, el-Rufai had the temerity to say (my) election could not stand in Rivers State and that they would kick me out.”
