Worried by the growing disenchantment with President Buhari’s toxic presidency and the implication for the party, Chairman of the All Progressive Congress Governors’ Forum and Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, weekend, expressed reservations that APC was not managing its victory well.
He said the party was a good party but regretted the poor management of its success at the polls. “Make no mistake about it, All Progressives Congress is a good party, by all standards but my regret is that we are not managing our victory very well”, he said.
Speaking in Owerri, Governor Okorocha, however, expressed optimism that President Buhari would succeed even as he was quick to reassure Ndigbo that the President Buhari administration was determined to take care of their interests.
“I have no doubt in my mind that the old man (Buhari) will succeed. All I pleaded with Buhari to capture in the current fiscal year, are in the budget. I want to assure Ndigbo that all that are due to us will definitely get to us”, he said
On the new pump price of premium motor spirit which prompted the face-off between labour and government, the governor said he was in full support of the deregulation of the oil sector of the nation’s economy.
“I support the deregulation of the oil sector of the nation’s economy. I also believe in concessioning government parastatals and agencies. Nothing established by government has ever worked in Nigeria. The Nigeria Airways, NITEL, Nigerian National Shipping Line and all, never worked”, Okorocha said.
