Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma has thrown the challenge to Nigerians to provide credible reasons the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) would not hold onto power in the 2023 general elections.
According to Hope Uzodinma, the problem of the APC government is with some people who have deliberately decided to tarnish the image of the party and bring it down. He explained that since the government assumed power, they have fulfilled their responsibilities like the payment of salaries and fixing of roads.
In his words: “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.” he added.
