We Have Done Well, Nigerians Will Soon Jubilate – APC Governors

The Chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF) Hope Uzodinma has said that despite the global economic downturn, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has done very well in Nigeria.

He said the hardship being experienced in the country was a product of the global economic meltdown but assured Nigerians that the country will soon get out of the tunnel.

The Imo Governor gave this verdict on Monday after leading three other members of the forum to pay solidarity visit on the National Chairman of the party, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje at the party National Secretariat in Abuja.

Addressing newsmen after a closed door meeting with the party’s Chairman, Governor Uzodinma noted that the current hardship is global but noted that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led administration has put in place policies to bring the country out of the woods.

“The truth of the matter is that the APC has done very well in Nigeria. What is happening currently, is a global economic problem. 

“We in Nigeria under our own leadership, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is also bringing out policies to ensure, given the kind of economy he met, given the kind of situation he saw when he came, he has started the treatment and by the grace of God, I am very confident that very soon Nigerians will be jubilant about how he has managed to navigate the waters,” he said. 

Uzodinma, who was accompanied by Ondo Governor Lucky Ayiedatiwa; his Ekiti counterpart Abiodun Oyebanji and Bassey Otu of Cross River State, said their visit was to primarily commiserate and solidarise with National Chairman and members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.

He said: “We are here, you know of course we are governors of APC. APC produced us and we are in Abuja for a meeting and of course in obedience to the discipline of partly and loyalty to party, we have to visit the Secretariat to talk with the leadership of the party, the chairman and member of the National Working Committee and above all, commiserate with the chairman who also lost his mother-in-law; and also show solidarity with the chairman and managers of our party.

“Those who are serving us, the national leadership of our party, providing service, they are managing our party day to day, there are looking after the policies of the party, they’re in charge of the administration of the party and of course, we members of the party and also critical stakeholders are committed to following and encouraging them as a way of showing support and that is solidarity.”

On the forthcoming Edo and Ondo Governorship elections, the PGF Chairman expressed optimism for the party’s victory at the polls.

He informed the Edo National Governorship Campaign Council will be inaugurated and flagged off on July 20 in Benin, the Edo State capital.

Commending the visiting Governors, Ganduje said their visit was a blessing to the party leadership.

Expressing confidence in the Governors, Ganduje said: “So, we are so happy about it and we have confidence in them. We will do all it takes to ensure that we maintain good relationship with our governors all over the country and we will help to protect their interests and there is no doubt that they’re also assisting the party, they are making the party to be proud as an institution.”
