He said apart from insulting him on the pages of newspaper and on 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”.

The governor stated  that his administration has used projects to silence critics, pointing  out that  more projects will continue in 2018.

He said that with the level of projects delivery in Rivers State, it will be difficult for anyone to rig elections  in the state.

“Instead of using resources to execute projects, they are keeping the money to bribe military and police for rigging”, he said.

The governor wondered why the APC Federal Government is unable to organise a peaceful and credible election.

He announced that the State will hold her Local Government election in 2018.

On the defection, Governor Wike commended the APC decampees and assured them that they will enjoy equal opportunities with existing PDP members.

Rivers State PDP Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah welcomed the APC defectors, noting that they would contribute to more victories of the PDP in the state.

Also speaking, Senator Adewari Pepple said that the defection is due to the outstanding performance of Governor Wike which attracted the APC Members.
