Governor of Imo and chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum, Rochas Okorocha on Monday said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is responsible for the challenges in the country, The Punch reports. Okorocha said this to State House correspondents a closed door meeting the APC governors held with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The governor said, “As APC, we are responsible for everything happening in Nigeria. We are responsible for the good, the bad, the ugly but we are promising Nigerians that we shall fix it.
“We share the pains of Nigerians, every human being must feel it. We also feel what they are going through but we are asking for a little patience.
“Let us do things the right way and do it once and for all. I am sure that by next year, you will begin to see changes, the price of rice will drop, prices of dollars will begin to stabilise and we will see a lot of challenges. “But at this painful moment, nobody likes it.
It is like a woman in the labour room, when she is in the labour room there is no joy but she has to pass through that moment and that moment, she does not wear her high heel shoes, no makeup, no champagne, no party.
“She is going through a process but shortly after that process, joy cometh once she sees the child. So, Nigerians should bear with us as a government.”
