    Action Democratic Party (ADP) governorship candidate, Victor Fingesi, has berated the administration of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.

    Fingesi stated this on Friday after he was presented to the public by State ADP Chairman, Kendrick Christian.

    He said the major problem in Rivers was poverty, “which is the reason we are having increased rate of crime and insecurity.”

    The candidate stated that the government generate N57.3billion annually but more than 1.7 million youths are unemployed.

    Fingesi argued that the state has over 188,590 out of school children due to poor leadership.

    Christian also said that the party was tired of bad leadership and had decided to give the people an alternative.

    We lack good leadership in this state and have suffered a lot. We want to hand over to the people a good pilot,” he said.

    Naija News reports that Wike defeated Fingesi in the 2019 gubernatorial election.

    Fingesi had challenged the outcome of the election but his petition was dismissed.

    In its ruling in October 2019, the Rivers State Governorship Election Tribunal described it as an adventure to “discover the non-existent”

    Fingesi also took the matter to the Court of Appeal in Port Harcourt; the appellate court struck out the appeal in December 2019.
