The APC doing well for Nigerians in spite of challenges -Uzodimma

Gov. Hope Uzodimma of Imo and Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum (PGF) has said that in spite of obvious economy challenges, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has done very well for Nigerians.

He said this on Monday in Abuja while speaking with newsmen at the party’s National Secretariat where he lead some members of the forum on a visit to the party’s leadership.

Newsatlarge reports that the PGF is an umbrella body of all serving governors elected on the APC platform.

Uzodimma who spoke after a close-after meeting with the party’s National Chairman, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, said the meeting was to keep in touch with the party’s leadership as its governors.

He said the meeting was also to show loyalty to the party’s leadership and commiserate with Ganduje who recently lost his mother in-law since the governors were in Abuja.

“Politically speaking, we don’t need to over flog the horse, the truth of the matter is that the APC has done very well in Nigeria.

“What is happening currently, is a global economic problem,” the PGF chairman explained.

He added that the President Bola Tinubu-led administration was putting in place policies to address the country’s current economy challenges given the kind of situation he met on assumption of office.

“I am very confident that very soon, Nigerians will be jubilant about how he has managed to navigate the waters,” Uzodimma  said.

He further said that the meeting was to show solidarity to the party’s national chairman and its other managers.

“Those who are serving us, the national leadership of our party, providing services, are managing our party’s day to day affairs.

“They are looking after the policies of the party and are in charge of its administration,” he said.

He added that as members and critical stakeholders of the party, the governors were committed to following and encouraging its leadership as a way of showing support and solidarity.

He expressed optimism that the APC would emerge victorious in the forthcoming Sept. 21 Edo governorship election because it is in the majority.

“I am the chairman of the PGF and when I speak, I speak on behalf of my colleagues, 20 governors.

“A party like APC that is in control of 20 states out of 36, and also has produced a president and members of the Federal Executive Council in the majority.

“If election is the game of numbers, it means majority will win, which other party can provide or boast of such asset,” he said.

Ganduje in his remarks, expressed satisfaction that the governors visited, saying it was a big blessing to the party.

He said the party’s leadership was
happy and confident in the governors and would do all it takes to maintain good relationship with them.

He added that because the governors were assisting the party and making it proud as an institution, its leadership would also help to protect their interests.(
