The Rivers State Governor , Chief Nyesom Wike , has described Nigeria as a country that is stagnant and without development .
Wike also called on the All Progressives Congress- led Federal Government to address the “massive ” electoral irregularities imposed by the administration on Nigerians , rather than focus on fighting hate speeches with fluid definition .
The governor spoke during the special thanksgiving service for the PDP candidates of the Rivers South – East Senatorial District on Sunday at the All Saints Anglican Cathedral , Bori, Khana Local Government Area .
Wike said though he had respect for the person of President Muhammadu Buhari , the truth remained that the current administration had failed Nigerians through lack of meaningful projects delivery .
He described the Federal Government ’ s fight against corruption as a survival trick by a non – performing government , adding that he would continue to say the truth even if the Federal Government viewed it as hate speech .
“ I have respect for the President . He is the President of all Nigerians and not of a political party . But the country is stagnant . There is no development going on.
“ All you are hearing about the fight against corruption is a mere survival trick by a non -performing government . The only story they have is Diezani . Even that story will soon end .
“ Hate speech is used to suppress the ability of the people to resist the evils being perpetrated by the APC Federal Government , ” the governor said .
The governor also vowed that the people of the state would resist any attempt to rig the 2019 general elections.
“ Whether it is Army or Police , what happened during the rerun will not happen in 2019 . We cannot fold our hands . God has given us the opportunity to defend ourselves , ” he stressed .
