Nigerians Will Vote Out APC In 2023, Wike Says

The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, says the current economic woes of the country and increasing banditry have made Nigerians realise that they made a mistake by voting the All Progressives Congress (APC) into power.

According to a statement by Wike’s spokesman, the Governor was quoted to have said this on Thursday after inspecting the ‘Greater Interchange and Underpass’ being constructed by Ahmadu Fintiri, governor of Adamawa state.

He said the inability of the APC to tackle insurgency, banditry and corruption will compel Nigerians to vote out the party in 2023.

Wike said Nigerians are unhappy with the way the APC administration has handled the affairs of the country.

He also added that Nigeria’s rating on the Transparency International corruption perception index revealed that the APC’s claim that it is fighting corruption is misleading.

“Are Nigerians happy? The answer is no. If Nigerians are not happy, what is the expected result that you intend to get? Obviously, Nigerians would want APC government not to govern them in 2023,” Wike was quoted to have said.

“I believe that Nigerians now know that they have made a mistake and they want to correct the mistake by voting for PDP and no longer APC.

“What you see is vindictiveness. Today, if I want to leave PDP and go to APC, I will no longer be corrupt. The moment I remain in PDP, I’m corrupt.

“So, corruption is based on the party you belong to. That is their definition of corruption and that is why everybody is disappointed.”

Wike said he was impressed with the developmental strides of the Adamawa governor, noting that similar feats are being replicated in states governed by the PDP.

He said the “overwhelming infrastructural development” taking place in all the PDP states, which Nigerians can attest to, will make it possible for the PDP to win the 2023 elections.

“I am shocked, overwhelmed with what I have seen. I was asking him where he was getting the money from. The kind of construction going on is as if Nigeria’s economic problem does not affect Adamawa state,” he said.

“And that is what we have always said. Whatever opportunity you have, whatever privilege you have, you try to make your people happy by providing them the basic infrastructure.”

The Governor urged Fintiri to remain focused on the delivery of dividends of democracy to his people, and not be bothered by the antics of the opposition.
