The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has said it will complete the ongoing state government-owned Rivers Refinery and Rivers State Polytechnic, all located at Ndoni District of Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni local government area of the state if elected into power in 2019.
The party also promised to construct an access road linking Ndoni Town and other communities in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni local government area.
Governorship candidate of APC in the state, Architect Tonye Cole disclosed this yesterday at Ndoni while addressing members and supporters of the party in Ward 13 and 14 of the local government area.
Cole said: “First of all, we have come to Ndoni because of you. We came so that we can see you, so that we can meet you; so that we can hear from you. So that we can also tell you that you are important to us. This work that we are on is not an easy work but it is a job that we must complete. Why must we complete it?”
“Your request for the completion of the refinery shows that the people of Ndoni are ready to be employed. Your request for the completion of the polytechnic shows that the people of Ndoni see education as an important thing. Your request for an access road will be attended to.
“We have heard your request and we will take it back with us. We are preparing a working document and all your requests will be part of that working document. God willing, if we are able to create the kind of wealth we believe we create, then everything is possible. But it means that we have to work together to ensure that is done.
He called on the people of Ndoni to work with the APC to ensure that the party takes over power in 2019, saying that he has the ability to create wealth, create access and create jobs for the people of the state.
The APC governorship candidate said: “My responsibility is to make sure that we galvanise every resource that we can so that we can ensure that the people will get what they deserve. That is my responsibility. We are going to work together to achieve that. But before we can do that we have to win an election. If we don’t win the election we cannot do anything that you have asked for. It is impossible.
“So the next thing we will do is that we must win an election. Everybody who believes in APC and everybody who believes in my ability to create wealth I have done it before; my ability to distribute wealth, I have done it before; my ability to create employment, I have done it before: my ability to create access, I have done it before.
