Governor Shettima, assured Nigerians that the fuel scarcity being experienced in the country at the moment would end in a couple of weeks. He said President Muhammadu Bu­hari has put necessary machinery in place to get things right.

Shettima stated this in Ow­erri, Imo State, yesterday, while fielding questions from newsmen when he visited Governor Rochas Okorocha with the governors of Ni­ger State, Alhaji Abubakar Sanni Bello and Jigawa State, Alhaji Badaru Abubakar Monmni.

“When PDP was misrul­ing the country, the price of oil was hovering around 140 dollars per barrel. The price has now plummeted to less than 40 dollars per barrel. It is to the credit of President Buhari that the nation is still moving despite the decline in revenue. If the PDP had con­tinued in power, the nation would have disintegrated,” Governor Shettima said.

He added that “The in­tegrity of the president has earned Nigeria respect in the global community as corrup­tion has reduced drastically and impunity is a thing of the past now. Nigerians should give President Buhari the benefit of doubt because he has shown sincerity in his de­sire to build a nation of our collective dreams and aspira­tions.”

Governor Shettima said that the APC led government is winning the war against insurgency as all the roads that were pre­viously closed have been reopened while the local governments have been re­covered from the insurgents.

Also speaking, Gover­nor Okorocha said: “There was enough evidence that Nigeria was almost go­ing down the drain before the emergence of the APC government. God loves this country and that is why he brought APC at this point in time to save the nation from imminent collapse.
