APC is building new  Nigeria, says Okorocha

Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha yesterday said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) administration at the Federal level is demolishing what he called the old and shaky structures the country stood on and rebuilding it for a new nation that all Nigerians will be proud to have.


The governor spoke at a special church service marking Sunday’s Democracy Day celebration at the Victory Chapel at the 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.”

He 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, Okorocha 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.”

Also, Deputy Governor Eze Madumere said: “Five years down the line, we can look back and thank God for all we have done to uplift the infrastructural situation of the state and raise the living condition of Imo people.

“I work for the glory of the job and not for its gains. My struggle is to see that my name and story appear favourably and boldly when the history of the state will be written.”
