The All Progressives Congress governors on Tuesday disclosed their displeasure over the state of Nigerian economy.
They made this known when they met with the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, at the Defence House, Abuja.
Speaking with newsmen after the meeting, the Chairman of the APC Governors forum and governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, said, the country’s economy is in such bad shape that no state has been able to pay salaries of its workers.
“As it stands today, most states of the federation have not been able to pay salaries, even the Federal Government has not been able to pay their April salary and that is worrisome,” he said.
“By May /June, that will be three months and with the huge expectations of the people who voted for us into office, we are hoping that the president-elect will do all that is humanly possible to bring a bail out not only on the states, but the Federal Government as well.”
The governor said the APC governors have seen a reason to work together with Mr. Buhari in order to bring about the change that Nigerians are yearning for.
“We also call on our brothers in the other parties to join us to build the Nigeria of our dreams.”
