“They have made promises, but they have made no efforts to fulfil the promises.
“Enough is enough for the lying and deception of the APC. You can see the difference between light and darkness,” he said.
The governor explained that construction of the Elele-Alimini internal roads is in fulfillment of his promise to the people of the area.
“Those people in APC stayed in government for eight years, but never fulfilled the promises they made to the people of Elele-Alimini. Today, we are here to fulfil our promises to the people of the area.
