Rivers State Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate, Chief Nyesom Wike, has said that the outgoing governor of the state, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, has no legacy of performance at the end of his terms in office, hence the people of the state have collectively resolved to vote against his All Progressives Congress, APC, anointed candidate in 2015.
Wike, who spoke, yesterday, during his thank you visit to Rumueme Kingdom, said that the empty 16,000 capacity Liberation Stadium where the APC state governorship campaign flag off was held, was an indication that the blessing of the people of Rivers State had left Amaechi and the APC.
He said: “What happened today (yesterday) at the 16,000 capacity Liberation Stadium, after all the money expended by Amaechi for the APC campaign flag off is an eye opener. Even when they attempted to do damage control, they gave away themselves by asking Eleme and other local government areas to raise their hands.
“The people of Rivers State have rejected Amaechi and his government of deceit. His anointed candidate claimed that he will continue with the legacies of Amaechi.
That is why he has been primed for defeat on February 28, 2015. Amaechi has a legacy of failed infrastructure, impunity, truncated judiciary, corrupt practices and poor contract governance, a legacy of destroyed legislative arm of government, a legacy of non payment of workers’ salaries and wastage of scarce Rivers State resources in the sponsorship of APC presidential campaign.”
