Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike says the All Progressives Congress (APC) and other political parties should emulate the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the delivery of democratic dividends to the citizens.
He said the PDP has done well in the State by fulfilling the promises it made to people of the State and they now know the difference.
Governor Wike stated this at the inauguration of the Okoro-Nu-Odo Flyover, which was performed by the former Governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke, on Monday.
The Rivers State Governor challenged the APC to come out bold to tell Rivers people what they will do differently or had done already to convince the people to believe in them.
Governor Wike pointed out that like every other project, the Okoro-Nu-Odo Flyover is among the best projects his administration has delivered because Rivers people deserve the best always.
“I want to thank everybody for your support. Our party is not a party of excuses. When we say something, we do it. Let other parties emulate us. They should not be promising Nigerians and be giving excuses.
“We have promised and we have fulfilled. When they (APC) make promise they should fulfil. PDP has done all its campaigns in this state. Let the other parties come to tell us what they will do differently or had done while in office. Time is already gone for them.”
Speaking further, Governor Wike said sceptics thought the three flyover projects he started in 2019 will not be completed within record time of 16 months. But with Rebisi and Okoro-Nu-Odo flyovers completed and commissioned, he said his administration has further demonstrated commitment to enhance infrastructure in the State.
The governor warned community leaders who encourage street traders around the area to desist from the act because trading activities will not be tolerated around the Okoro-Nu-Odo Flyover.
“To the paramount rulers of Rumuokoro Community and Rumuodumaya Community, tell your youths and CDCs, who are always collecting money here, I will not tolerate anybody who will covert this flyover as trading place.
“We cannot spend this money here and you turn this place into a market. I will not accept that. We have built market and motor park for you. Go and use them for your business activities.
