Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has stated that Rivers APC leaders only gain recognition from the Federal Government when they rain insults on him.
He said apart from insults on the pages of newspaper and electronic media, Rivers APC leaders have no political value in the state.
He spoke on Saturday when he received hundreds of APC decampees from Opobo-Nkoro Local Government Area at the Government House, Port-Harcourt .
The governor said: “The only way they get recognition from the Federal Government is by insulting Wike. Apart from that, they are finished politically.
“They must tell Rivers people what they have attracted to the state. After two and half years, they are unable to attract any project”.
Wike said that the Director General of NIMASA, Dakuku Peterside, and Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, have nothing to show to Rivers people except their capacity to insult him.
The governor stated that his administration has used projects to silence critics, pointing out that more projects will continue in 2018.
