Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said the federal government constituted by the All Progressives Congress (APC) has done so badly that Nigerians will not make the mistake of returning it to power in 2023.
He stated this during a visit to his Adamawa State counterpart, Governor Ahmadu Fintiri on Thursday.
“PDP states are doing very well and some are angry. Let them show what they are doing instead of being angry,” Wike said.
He boasted that the PDP would take over government at the federal level come 2023 because APC has proved itself to be a failure and Nigerians would not make the mistake of returning it to power.
