Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday in Abuja met with President Muhammadu Buhari and reassured him of their support and loyalty.
Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, leader of the Governors, who spoke to State House Correspondents after the meeting held in the Presidential Villa, said the governors were in support of the ongoing anti-corruption crusade of the Buhari-led administration.
He said that they also commended the President for the successes so far recorded in the ongoing fight against insurgency in the country.
He said that they came to the Villa to “ to reassure Mr President that the APC‎ governors are solidly behind him, in his fight against corruption; his fight against insurgents and all his other laudable projects.
“We are concerned about the incessant happenings in the National Assembly and we have taken it upon ourselves to look into the matter.
“We are going to look into the matter because we need a strong, vibrant National Assembly to make things move fast in the country,’’ he said.
On the financial position of the states, Okorocha acknowledged that there had been some improvements in their finances.
“There is a lot of improvement. What the states are getting ‎now is close to what they used to get when oil price was above $100.’’
According to him, this is a clear indication that the President Buhari-led administration was doing a lot to revive the economy.
“We are not yet there, but we are getting there. We appeal to Nigerians to be patient with this government because it means well for the welfare of our people.’’
‎On the criticism trailing the proposed visit of some governors to Germany for training, the governor dismissed the insinuation that the planned visit was a jamboree.
“There is nothing like jamboree trip.‎ We are going to Germany because we cannot do everything here without exchanging ideas.
“Everything you do in your home, your business you share ideas.
“So, we want to see how they have done what they had done to succeed. The aspiration of Nigeria is to be like other developed countries of the world.’’
