Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma has stated that governors from the South-Eastern part of the country and many other governors would join the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the next general elections in Nigeria.
Uzodinma had a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa on Tuesday, after which he spoke to journalist.
He challenged Nigerians to provide reasons why the APC should not win 2023 elections.
When asked, if more Southeast governors would defect to APC, Uzodinma said, “Not just from the South-east, many governors in Nigeria will join the APC.”
He added, “Part of the problem of this government is the deliberate attempt by some group of people to pull it down.
“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, two hundred 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. Can anybody come and tell me one, two, three reasons why this APC shouldn’t 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.”
