Governor Wike, of Rivers State has challenged the All Progressives Congress (APC) members to showcase development projects they have delivered to the people in their various states to prove they also mean well for the people.
Governor Wike stated this at the inauguration of Tombia Road, Ndoni and Amaji streets in New GRA Phase 2, which was performed by Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, yesterday, in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area.
Wike said it was only the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governors that were developing and delivering infrastructural projects in their various states.
According to him, these projects have continued to improve the well-being of the people to affirm that development is happening only in PDP-controlled states.
“We challenge the ruling party to tell their states to roll out projects and invite people to come and commission them,” Wike said.
Governor Wike described his Benue counterpart as a man who is committed to the development of his people, forthright, courageous and stands in defense of the well-being of the people in the state.
He said when Governor Ortom was being persecuted, and made to pass through intimidation, he stood firm and stayed with the people.
Wike said his relationship with Ortom was designed to make Rivers and Benue states, including PDP to move forward.
Governor Ortom said God has destined him and Governor Wike to work together as brothers and friends in speaking up for the voiceless and marginalized people in the country.
According to him, Nigeria has, since 2015, ceased to be a country where equity, justice and fairness are promoted.
He said until those virtues are embraced nationally, every citizen would remain entangled and never be free.
