Northern governors visit Owerri, say APC govt’s done much


OWERRI—Borno State Governor and Chairman, Northern Governors’ Forum, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, has said that the fight against Boko Haram will soon come to an end. Speaking with journalists in Owerri, the governor said: “All Progressives Congress, APC, government has achieved a lot in the fight against the dreaded Boko Haram. They have been degraded and all the roads in Borno State have been opened for business, unlike before when they were occupying some local government areas.” He also said the scarcity being experienced in the country at the moment will end in a couple of weeks as President Muhammadu Buhari had set genuine machinery in place to put things right. Alhaji Shettima, who was in Owerri, in the company of the governors of Niger and Jigawa states, Alhaji Abubakar Bello and Alhaji Badaru Abubakar, respectively, stressed that “the hiccups faced by the nation at the moment is expected as All Progressives Congress, APC, government is in the process of rebuilding the nation.” The governor said it was to the credit of President Buhari that the nation was still moving despite the decline in revenue. He said: “The integrity of the President has earned Nigeria respect in the global community as corruption has reduced drastically and impunity is a thing of the past. Nigerians should give President Buhari the benefit of doubt because he has shown sincerity in his desire to build the Nigeria of our collective dreams and aspirations.” For Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, “There was enough evidence that Nigeria was almost going down the drain before the emergence of the APC government. “God loves this country. That is why He brought APC to save the nation from imminent collapse. If Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was still in charge and oil falls to this level, the nation would have been in a mess.” .
