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.”
