Former Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State has stated that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has no vision.
Lamido spoke at the inauguration of Rumuji, Ibaa, Obelle Isokpo road in Emouha Local Government Area of Rivers State on Monday.
According to Alhaji Lamido, the APC in an assemblage of persons moved by anger, envy and malice.
He said the remodelling of airports, rehabilitation of railway and the reforms that the current APC-led administration is boasting of are all initiatives of the PDP.
“When APC came on board, they had no programme. They had no plan; the only agenda they had was to flush out PDP from government because we were performing; because we were organised, because we were committed, because we are compassionate and very humane,” he said.
“They (APC) can’t think. They have no vision, they have no feeling, they have no compassion, they are there for the power and the power is there tormenting them, because the power has been abused.”
Speaking earlier, the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, said that his development programme is to create a conducive environment that offers the people of Rivers State an opportunity to actualise their potentials.
“I’m sure, all those from Isiopko, Obele, Ibaa and Rumuji, will look back and reflect on how this road was. Do not forget it easily.
“Today, all of us can come back home. All of us can go to the market. We can all drive freely; those from Isiopko can pass through and go to Emohua. Those from Rumuji and all of you can pass through and go to the airport.
“This is what development is all about. Development is not about giving you money. It is all about making the environment conducive for economic activities to thrive.
“There is no way government can share money to everybody. But it has a duty to make the environment conducive for you to work and find food to eat. I’m sure when this road was going on, most of you were employed and made some money, and supported members of your families. I am grateful to God for the grace of life and resources to execute this project.”
