Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has warned that citizens must no longer listen to fake promises made by politicians.
He said this in Bori, the headquarters of Khana Local Government Area of the state on Saturday.
Wike said Nigerians are tired of fake promises by politicians to garner votes. He added that it is becoming impossible to influence election outcomes with security agents as Nigerians are now more knowledgeable to resist the fraud. He accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government of complicating the situation of the people of the country.
“The time has come that we can no longer listen to empty promises of politicians, like what the ruling party is doing today.
“When they came in 2015, they told us that naira and dollar will be equal and today, what is the equivalent? They said they will create jobs, but Nigeria has the highest rate of unemployment in Africa – 33 per cent; why won’t there be a crisis?” the governor questioned.
Governor Wike spoke during the PDP campaign rally for the local government election scheduled to hold on April 17.
