The All Progressives Congress in Rivers State has accused Governor Nyesom Wike of running a government of deceit.
The party said Wike and the Peoples Democratic Party do not have any development master plan for the state but only clone the famous roadmap to prosperity developed by its governorship candidate, Dr Dakuku Adol Peterside.
APC, in a statement issued in Port Harcourt yesterday by its publicity secretary, Chris Finebone, said a confirmation that Wike and the PDP have no development master plan for the state became obvious last week when the governor set up a steering committee on the blue print for the state government.
The statement read in part, “The All Progressives Congress (APC), having closely observed the slightly over one-month old Rivers State government led by Governor Nyesom Wike, has come to the conclusion that we have a government of deceit on our hands.
“During the political campaigns early in the year, Barr Wike and the PDP claimed to have a development master plan for Rivers State.
However, a quick and careful scrutiny revealed that it was a cloning of the now famous roadmap to prosperity developed by Dr Dakuku Adol Peterside, the APC governorship candidate.
“A further confirmation of this became obvious last week when the governor set up a steering committee on the blue print for Rivers State government under the chairmanship of Barr Nimi Waltson-Jack, who explained that his committee was set up to streamline planned government projects. The question is: did the Wike team really have a development programme for the state ab initio as claimed?
“The seeming confusion the government is presently bedevilled with is occasioned by its lack of understanding of Dr Dakuku Peterside’s roadmap to prosperity which the governor copied so badly.”
