The governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha has said that he is not pleased about the way his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) is managing its victory.

Okorocha said this while speaking with newsmen in Owerri, the state capital yesterday.

“Make no mistake about it, All Progressives Congress is a good party, by all standards but my regret is that we are not managing our victory very well”, Okorocha said.

On his thoughts about the new pump price of fuel, the Governor said he was in full support of the deregulation of the oil sector of the nation’s economy.

“I support the deregulation of the oil sector of the nation’s economy. I also believe in concessioning government parastatals and agencies. Nothing established by government has ever worked in Nigeria. The Nigeria Airways, NITEL, Nigerian National Shipping Line and all, never worked”, Okorocha said.

On the state workers whose salaries have not been paid since February this year, the Governor said he was very comfortable with the 70:30 ratio agreement with labour, even as he warned that anytime workers refuse their salaries, he would use it to carry out projects.

“Both pension and internally generated revenue, IGR, are serious problems for me. Only recently, I ordered all the Board of Internal Revenue officers to go on leave but they have written to say it was unconstitutional to ask all officers to go on leave”, the Governor said.
