- FG Has Been Generous to State Governors, Says Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday said the Federal Government had been generous to state governors.
Buhari who spoke in Owerri, the Imo State capital, while inauguration some of the projects built by the state Governor, Rochas Okorocha, said the FG under his leadership had rendered a lot of help to state governors.
Some of the projects commissioned were the Sam Mbakwe Airport, new police headquarters and Mother and Child hospital, all in Owerri.
Represented by the Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo, Buhari said governors needed to think out of the box in order to develop their respective states.
Commending Okorocha, Buhari said, “The Federal Government and indeed the APC family are proud of you. By what you have achieved, it is possible for governors to develop their respective states without looking for assistance from the Federal Government.
“The Federal Government has been generous to state governors. We have assisted states and we will continue to do so.”
Okorocha, in his speech said it was unfortunate for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to freeze the accounts of the state for three months.
He said, “These are part of the numerous projects we have done; yet the EFCC has frozen Imo account for three months now, plus the withholding of my certificate of return.”
