Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike has on Monday stated that the All Progressives Congress in the state and at national level have nothing to offer than lies.
Wike said this while receiving the 4500 APC decampees to PDP at the Government Secondary School, Nkpolu Oroworukwu, in Port Harcourt City Local Government Area.
Governor Wike said their reason for decamping was a realisation by Nigerians that the APC at the national had nothing to offer the people.
Wike, who was represented by the PDP state chairman, Felix Obuah, said that contrary to earlier insinuations by the opposition party, the PDP leadership at the state had favoured non-indigenes than any other party.
Obuah said: “I am here to receive Non-indigene Without Border from APC to PDP. To tell you how important this occasion meant to our Governor and leader of PDP in this state, Chief Nyesom Wike, he was supposed to be here by himself to receive you. But, because of order engagement going on today in the State, he mandated me that I must be here to receive you.
“You have made the right choice to defect from APC to PDP. I want to use this forum to congratulate and commend your leader Emeka Onowu for his steadfastness all these years.
“He came when Nyesom Wike was not yet a governor. Wike is a God-sent messiah to good people of Rivers. He is a gift to humanity. He is a gift to non-indigenes. He is a gift to the less-privileged.
“He has performed beyond expectation. So, you did not do mistake by jettisoning the lie lie party, APC. Nigerians have become aware that the APC at the national level has nothing to offer the people.”
