The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has taken steps to prevent Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, from commissioning projects executed by the administration of Governor Nyesom Nwike.

In what the party described as an open letter to Osinbajo’s Spokesman, Laolu Akande, the Publicity Secretary of the party in Rivers State, Chris Finebone said, “The feedback we are getting from our numerous members in Rivers State is that Gov. Nyesom Wike has invited the Ag. President to commission some low profile projects just to score cheap political points.

“Of concern to us is the fact that those projects are manifestly demeaning for a President to travel more than a thousand kilometres to commission.”

Finebone expressed the view that Osinbajo reject or decline the invitation, stressing that “Governor Wike cannot always resort to using APC leaders to ridicule APC members in Rivers State.”

The APC in Rivers State also raised objection to “the reference to the Governor as ‘Mr. Project’ jokingly by the Ag. President the last time he was in the state,”   stating that it is still being used by Governor Wike “to taunt, ridicule and insult APC and its members in Rivers State to this day.”

The party vowed that “We cannot encourage him with further materials to continue his anti-APC propaganda against us in addition to several of our members being gruesomely killed and beheaded in ONELGA and other LGAs in Rivers State.”
