Sule Lamido, a former governor of Jigawa State, has said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has no vision to propel the country’s development.
The former, who spoke at the inauguration of Rumuji, Ibaa, Obelle Isokpo roads in Emouha Local Government Area in Rivers State on Monday, also claimed that the APC had no programme or plan when they came on board.
According to him, the APC’s only agenda was to flush out the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from government because the party was performing.
He described the APC as a party without feeling or compassion as they are in government to only capture power.
He said: “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.
“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, Nyesom Wike, Governor of Rivers State, explained that his development programme is to create a conducive environment for economic growth in the state, adding that it is the duty of government to improve the livelihood of its citizens.
He said: “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.”
