•Rivers PDP Chairman Obuah.

The Rivers State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bro. Felix Obuah, has expressed regret over lack of tangible projects by the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government in the state.

Obuah in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam, said “the party frowns at this obvious indifference towards the state.”

The Chairman cited the Port Harcourt International Airport, which has remained abandoned by the Federal Government.

He regretted that the APC-led federal government has failed to complement the efforts of the State Governor, Chief (Barr) Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, in the execution of capital projects that 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 treating the state badly despite all the support the state Governor is giving the Federal Government.

He mentioned the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, and Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos projects completed in record time, whereas the Port Harcourt International Airport remains abandoned.

“It is against this backdrop, that the PDP Chairman has urged the APC-led Federal Government to have a rethink by giving deserved attention to Rivers State, which is the Treasure Base of the nation, the Goose that lays the Golden Eggs for the rest of us.”
