The governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, attacked his detractors, claiming that while they were complaining about him, he was tearing down All Progressives Congress (APC) institutions in the state.
The PDP is currently experiencing a crisis, and Wike is its main perpetrator.
However, the governor said he was on a mission to topple all APC buildings in the state. He made this known while speaking at the launching of the Ogbunabali Sand-filled Area on Tuesday in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
Additionally. Wike expressed displeasure at how people were utilising his name in their states; saying he should not be sidetracked since he had been busy destroying APC political base in the South-South state.
“Instead of you people concentrating on how PDP wins an election; you go and pay money to television houses talking about Wike every day.
“Meanwhile, Wike and his team are busy here bringing down all structures of APC, providing dividends of democracy. In your own state, you are only talking about Wike,” he added.
Meanwhile, Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Tuesday, August 30, 2022 at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, received the All Progressives Congress (APC) governors.
Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, in a statement said the governors were on a felicitation visit to the vice-president as he recovered from the leg surgery done in July.
The vice president expressed his appreciation to the governors for their visit and good wishes.
He harped on the need for urgent measures to address issues on the economy ; as well as the lingering strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike.
Osinbajo and the governors agreed to engage the pressing issues further; with a view to bringing fast resolution for the benefit of the Nigerian people.
“We all need to work together on these critical issues. We need to think through things, and we need to do it fast,” he said.
Osinbajo also commended the expertise of Nigerian doctors and the availability of cutting-edge medical facilities existing in the country.
The vice-president regretted that doctors were restrained by regulations from advertising and as a result, many people were unaware of the level of quality medical services available locally.
Gov. Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State, who is also the Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum, spoke with State House correspondents shortly after the meeting with the vice-president.
He said that the governors were excited that the vice-president had recovered from a serious medical procedure that he had.
