No Federal Presence in Rivers State – PDP

by on April 20, 2017
Two years into the administration of the All Progres­sives Congress (APC)-led federal government, Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has regret­ted the alleged absence of tangible projects execut­ed by the Federal govern­ment in the State.
The state PDP Chair­man, Felix Obuah in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Me­dia and Publicity, Jerry Needam said the party frowns at the obvious indifference towards the state.
The chairman cited the Port Harcourt Inter­national Airport which, according to him, has remained abandoned by the Federal Government.
Obuah regretted that the APC-led federal gov­ernment has failed to complement the efforts of the State Governor, Barr Nyesom Ezenwo Wike in the execution of capital projects which would have improved the wellbeing of the peo­ple of the State.
He lamented that the APC-led Federal Gov­ernment ‘deliberately abandoned the State’ and also accused the federal government of allegedly treating the State badly despite all the support the State Governor is giving the Federal Gov­ernment.
He said the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja and Mur­tala Mohammed Inter­national Airport in Lagos projects have been com­pleted in record time, whereas the Port Har­court International Air­port remains abandoned.
However, the PDP Chairman has urged the APC-led Federal Government to give “deserved attention to Rivers State which is the Treasure Base of the na­tion, the goose that lays the golden eggs for the country.”
