RIVERS State governor, Nyesom Wike, has told anyone who cares to listen that the All Progressive Congress in the state is dead.
Mr. Wike also said the APC can never rise again.
The governor stated this while reacting to the planned visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to the state.
Mr. Buhari is billed to be in Rivers on Thursday.
But Wike said he has not been informed of the president’s planned visit to his state.
His position was made known by Simeon Nwakaudu, the media aide of the governor.
“I have not been told the president is coming and why he is coming. He has the right to come to any state.
A“Maybe the president is coming to make sure that he will improve the fortunes of the APC that is dead in Rivers state.
“Apart from Jesus Christ, we don’t know of anyone who has risen a dead thing. APC is a dead party in Rivers state. No matter how you fast and pray, it will never wake up,” he said.
Wike said since the federal government has abandoned the state, Buhari’s visit could be a blessing in disguise.
“The president may use the visit to complete the Port Harcourt International Airport, the neglected east-west road, the neglected seaports and the rejected Port Harcourt-Aba road.”
