APC Will Not Use Economic Downturn As Excuse For Non-Performance – Okorocha

Published

on

Rochas OkorochaGovernor of Imo State and Chairman of Progressive Governors Forum, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, has said that the governing All Progressives Congress will not use the economic downturn in the country as an excuse to dodge credible performance.
Rather, he said the President Muhammadu Buhari administration is demolishing what he called the old and shaky structures laid by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the past and rebuilding it for a new nation that all Nigerians will be proud of.
The governor spoke at a special church service yesterday to mark Sunday’s Democracy Day celebration at the Victory Chapel, Government House in Owerri, the state capital.
He said: “What is happening now in the country is a total reconstruction of Nigeria and laying of a strong foundation that will metamorphose into a new Nigeria we shall all be proud of.
“The restructuring requires patience and perseverance on the part of all. The APC government, led by President Muhammadu Buhari, will put Nigeria back on its strong foot. The APC government will not use the downturn in the economy as an excuse but will bring water out of stone to put the nation right”.
Governor Okorocha added: “What we are passing through now as a nation is a road other great nations, such as the United States of America (U.S.A) and Britain, passed through before they got to where they are today. If Nigeria fails from now henceforth, then the APC will be held responsible. But this government must be given time to clear the rot of yesteryears”.
On his achievements in Imo State that last five years, he said: “The joy of a father is to see the collection of successful sons he has set the state on the right path of greatness with his Rescue Mission team. I love Imo State.
“I am doing my best to live a legacy and mark that the generation yet unborn will be proud of”.

    Metal roofing is something which is rising in reputation as increasingly more businesses are actually purchasing this sort of roofing
    set up,however these sorts of roofs were not always as widespread
    as they are now as they lacked variety and simply regarded plain ugly on most
    buildings so folks usually averted them.

Obi also blamed President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration for not adequately preparing Nigerians for the impact of COVID-19, stating the monies borrowed by this government were not properly put to use.

Recession: Nigeria Is Broke, Can’t Afford 2021 Budget – Atiku

Atiku Abubakar

Former Vice-President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has expressed that the Federal Government should reconsider the 2021 budget owing to the recession.

Nigeria officially entered into its worst economic recession in 33 years after the nation recorded a GDP contraction of 3.62 percent in the third quarter of 2020.

He stated that Nigeria is broke and cannot afford the luxurious items in the N13.08 trillion budget proposal.

Atiku in a Twitter thread on Sunday stated that COVID-19 only complicated an existing economic problem.

Atiu went on to express that had President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration listened to advice, the recession could have been avoided.

“We could have avoided this fate by a disciplined and prudent management of our economy.”

“This could have been avoided had this administration taken heed to the patriotic counsel given by myself and other well-meaning Nigerians on cutting the cost of governance, saving for a rainy day, and avoiding profligate borrowing,” Atiku said.

He further said that now is not the time to trade blames but to focus on ways to manage the situation and called on Buhari’s government to “swallow its pride, and accept its limitations, so that they can open their minds to ideas, without caring who the messenger is.”
