The Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, has stated that nothing can stop the All Progressives Congress, APC, from winning the 2023 general elections, Page 36 learnt.
Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, at the Presidential Villa, after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, he challenged Nigerians to come up with any reason why the ruling party should not win the 2023 polls.
Governor Uzodinma said that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration has performed well, and should be applauded.
This is despite the incessant and uncontrollable insecurity in most parts of the country, as well as the dying economy, collapse of the Judiciary, massive unemployment, inflation, rising calls for secession by various groups, and many more ills occurring under the current administration.
While responding to a question on whether more Governors from the South-East region would defect to the APC, the he stated: “Not just from the South-East, many Governors in Nigeria will join the APC.
“Part of the problem of this government, is the deliberate attempt by some group of people to pull (it) down.
“Because nobody is telling me that this government is not performing, that salaries are not being paid, or that the roads are not being constructed, or the railway is not going, or the various intervention funds to empower our youths are not being given out.
“Nobody has come in concrete terms to accuse this government of one failure or the other. All we hear is that herdsmen and farmers are fighting, and for that reason, 200 people are kidnapped. People are shot down there, people are killed there.
“What do you want the government to do? We must be realistic. I believe in pragmatism. I believe in doing things right. Can anybody come and tell me one, two, three, four reasons why this APC should not win in the next election?
“All I hear is that because of insecurity this, insecurity that. But you send people out in the night to go and cause trouble, and use it in the day to blame the government.”
