Wike: My Govt not like those who Promised to make N1 equal to $1; Gov chides APC
He gave the charge yesterday, while flagging off the dredging/sand filling and reclamation of Abalama in Asari-Toru and Bakana in Degema local government areas of the state.
Daily Sun report that the projects in Abalama and Bakana towns span 38 hectares.
The newspaper also quoted Governor Wike, as saying that the Rivers State government was redefining politics in Nigeria by ensuring that campaign promises were kept.
“We are redefining the pattern of politics in Nigeria. You cannot use people and dump them. We cannot give everyone money, but we can execute projects that everybody will benefit from.”
“We are not like those who said they will make one naira to equal one dollar. Instead of actualising their promise, they are busy giving excuses”, Governor Wike said, while speaking on the failure of the APC Federal Government to live up to the expectation of Nigerians.
The governor urged the APC Federal Government to settle down and focus on fulfilling the several promises they made to Nigerians.
He said that the APC got the mandate on the strength of its promises to Nigerians, saying that it was uncharitable for the APC government to blameprevious government, when it should be working.
Wike said the dredging, stand filing and reclamation projects, which run through the three Kalabari local government areas, would entrench development in the area.
He urged the people of the community to support the company undertaking the project to complete it on schedule. He also advised the company to reciprocate by providing jobs for the youths of the town.
