Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has challenged his counterparts in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to showcase projects they delivered in their various states.
Wike threw up the challenge on Tuesday when the Benue State Governor; Samuel Ortom inaugurated the Tombia Road, Ndoni Street and Amaji Street in New GRA Phase 2, Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of the state.
The governor in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media, Kelvin Ebiri, said only PDP governors were developing and delivering infrastructural projects in their various states.
He said such projects had continued to improve the wellbeing of the people insisting that development was happening only in PDP-controlled states.
He said: “Some few weeks ago, I was invited by the governor of Benue State to come and commission some projects. I went and I did commission not less than three road projects.
“They received us very well and I did say to him that the people of Rivers State will also like him to come and also commission projects in the state. So that Nigerians will know that the party in opposition is the party that means well for the development of this country.
“We challenge the ruling party to tell their states to roll out projects and invite people to come and commission them.”
Wike described his Benue counterpart as a man forthright, courageous man, who was committed to the development of his people.
He explained that when Ortom was undergoing persecution and intimidation, he stood firm, and stayed with the people, a quality he said endeared him to the Benue governor.
He said there was no security in Nigeria adding that the economy was also in bad shape because of the depreciation the Naira had suffered under the leadership of the APC.
