The Progressives Governors Forum chairman and Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha, on Tuesday described governors of the All Progressives Congress as the best in Nigeria’s history.

He stated this when he spoke at the opening of a retreat on policy synergy between states and the Federal Government, holding in Birnin Kebbi, Kebbi State. Okorocha lauded APC governors as the best thing to happen to Nigeria.

He said, “Our party has the best governors ever produced in the history of this country – from Sokoto, Adamawa, Kebbi, Lagos, Imo, Zamfara, Nasarawa, Kogi and others.

“When you visit those states, you will know that Nigerians have not made mistake electing us to lead their states affairs.”

Amidst the criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government over percieved failures more than two years after assumption to office, Okorocha said it was too early to judge the administration.

“We want to appeal to Nigerians not to judge us from past sins or within the two years we have been in the mantle of leadership of this great country.

“You should judge us when the mandate entrusted to us expires,” he said.

Towing a familiar path, Okorocha reminded Nigerians that those currently running the affairs of the country came on board at a time the country was at the brink of collapse due to security and economic challenges.

He said, “We have resolved to fix the economy and it has already being fixed.”

On the present tension in the country following hate speeches, the Imo State governor said, “We are united and Nigeria will always remain an indivisible nation.

“We don’t know who is Hausa, Yoruba or Igbo, our determination is only to stamp out hunger and bring democratic dividend to our citizens.

“Hate statements should not be taken serious or regarded from anyone.”

The ruling part continues to contend with a largely dysfunctional economy and ethnic agitations, all of which threaten the unity of the country.

    Yes, they are the best in corruption, embezzlement of public fund, mismanagement of public funds, spending Paris fund on girlfriends, and privatizing government as family business. So Okorocha is very right.

    Actually, I agree with Okorocha on this. They have the best governors compared to other political parties, but as president, they are the worst
