Throw in the towel if you can’t govern Nigeria anymore’, PDP Governors tell APC-led FG


Governors elected on the platform of the main opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, have maintained their initial call on the ruling All Progressives Congress to either find solutions to the current economic hardship Nigerians are battling with or throw in the towel.

The governors under the banner of People’s Democratic Party Governors Forum, PDP-GF advised the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, under the leadership of President Bola Tinubu to politely throw in the towel if it cannot organize Nigerians as well as all organs and tiers of government for sustainable solutions to the various problems tormenting the nation.

The governors decried the administrative malnourishment of the APC and warned that “a hungry man is an angry man”.

In a statement issued at the weekend by its Director-General, Hon CID Maduabum in Abuja, PDP-GF reminded the APC and President Bola Ahmed Tinubu that as the Commander In Chief of the armed forces, who hires and fires, the responsibility ultimately stops at his table.

But in the interest of the country and as patriots, the PDP-GF, nevertheless, guaranteed that as stakeholders in governance, it would continue to work collaboratively with the President in finding lasting solutions to “a very difficult situation created or exacerbated by the APC since 2015”.

The PDP Governors Forum frowned at the Minister of Information, and sister’s forum, the APC Governors’ Forum and other officials of the APC-led Federal Government who castigated the PDP-GF for their suggestions, advice and patriotic intervention on the way forward for the country in a communiqué issued at the end of their recent meeting in Abuja.

“It must be noted that even though Nigeria is a Federation, there is indeed only one economy. Hardship and suffering being faced by Nigerians have no tribal, religious or party colouration. A hungry man is an angry man.

“While all tiers of government have a role to play, the APC led Federal Government has a disproportionate role to play in mobilising Nigerians and all organs and tiers of government for sustainable solutions.

“If it cannot do so or is unable to do so, it should graciously throw in the towel.

“Attempts by the Honourable Minister of Information, APC Governors’ Forum and other officials of the Federal Government who criticised the PDP Governors’ Forum for their patriotic intervention should be guided by the fact that the APC sought power to solve the problems of Nigeria not to compound them or shift blame, or grandstand or use propaganda to obfuscate or confuse issues” PDP-GF categorically declared

On a comparative basis with their APC counterparts, the PDP governors scored themselves very high and absorbed it’s members of any wrong doing that has compounded the terrible economic woes of the country, declaring that they’re the best in the country “PDP governed States are comparatively the best in Nigeria in terms of developmental policies, programmes, and projects that benefit their States positively, regular payment of salaries, pensions, gratuities, and minimum wage to their workforce.

“State governments that are delinquent on these issues are not of PDP extraction. It is false to say so. Even the food crises are exacerbated by insecurity and high exchange rate issues, among others, which are largely federal subjects.

“The PDP Governors as stakeholders in governance would continue to work collaboratively with Mr. President to find lasting solutions to a very difficult situation created or exacerbated by the APC since 2015. We believe in co-operative Federalism.

“The buck ultimately stops at Mr. Presidents table as the Chief Executive Officer of Nigeria, the President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federation, the Chief Salesman and leader of Nigeria.

“We are not in doubt that he is trying his best. We only hope and pray that his best is good enough to take Nigeria out of the woods in the shortest possible time”, the PDP Governors unequivocally held.
