Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has called on Nigerians to use the 57th Independence Anniversary to completely detach themselves from the uncontrollable lies of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Addressing market women at the Mile 1 Market in Port Harcourt on Saturday after inspecting ongoing projects, Governor Wike said that the APC has failed Nigerians and there is no need giving them another chance.
He regretted that APC promised Nigerians several projects, but none has been actualized after more than two years in office.
Governor Wike pointed out that the Mile 1 being built by his administration was one of the failed promises of the immediate past APC administration in the state.
He said: “APC is a party founded on lies and deceit. They make promises without any intention to keep the promises. They lie without remorse.
“Take this Mile One market for instance. The immediate past APC administration in the state promised to construct the market, but they failed the market women. We promised to build the market and work is progressing.”
The governor said upon completion of the market, the administration will not allow street trading in that axis.
“I want to inform you that when we finish this market, street trading will not be allowed along this road. This market will accommodate all of you”, he said.
He charged the market women to observe basic sanitation and support the contractors to deliver on schedule. He said the market will come on stream by next year.
Governor Wike inspected ongoing completion work at Woji-Akpajo Bridge and road, Dualization of Elelenwo-Akpajo Road, Slaughter Road, Garrison-Trans-Amadi-Elelenwo Road, Produce House And Mile One Market .
