Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has alleged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) orchestrated an unfortunate conspiracy to oust former President Goodluck Jonathan.
The Rivers governor made the claim during the reception organized by the Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to welcome thousands of APC members back into PDP.
Naija News reports that leaders of the defectors include former Director of Finance and Administration of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Henry Ogiri; APC South-South administrative officer, Gloria Boma; Mr. Lolo Ibieneye, and Alhaji Hassan Douglas.
Speaking during the reception, Wike said his achievements have silenced the APC and other political parties in the State.
On the 2023 election, the Rivers governor said the ruling APC has started making false promises to Nigerians.
He stated that such false promises include the construction of a University of Transport, develop a deep seaport and industrial park in the State.
Wike said prior to the 2015 election the APC had promised to transform the country but has continued to give excuses for its failure after it orchestrated the removal of Jonathan.
He said: “Are things better today? So why do you allow people to tell you lies? How long can you continue to listen to the lies of the All Progressives Congress?
“They have nothing for Nigerians. It is unfortunate that there was a conspiracy to remove a Niger Delta person as President.”
