Governors elected on the platform of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have carpeted the government of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), saying the Muhammadu Buhari led administration has not demonstrated the capacity to govern the country.
This is coming just as they also alleged that the current government has been engaging in subversive activities aimed crippling dissenting voices and opinions in the country
These positions form the major outcome of the recent meeting of the governors at Makurdi, the Benue State capital recently.
In a communique that was issued at the end of the meeting, which had 14 out of the 15 elected governors in attendance they also called on the Revenue Mobilisation and Fiscal Commission to put in place machinery that would ensure that the 36 states of the country enjoy more allocation from the current formular.
On the state of the nation, the communique reads, “The meeting noted and condemned the alarming drift of Nigeria which if allowed to continue, will make Nigeria a failed state under the watch of the All Progressives Congress, APC, government.”
The governors expressed deep concern and alarm at the deteriorating relations between various groups in Nigeria, saying, “All our fault lines and differences are being stretched to the limit by a government that clearly lacks the capacity to govern.”
According to the governors, Nigeria is in dire need of leadership at the Federal level to avert the looming disaster.
They added that “Security of lives and property of Nigerians are no longer guaranteed under the present government as a result of leadership incompetence and mismanagement of the nation’s affairs”.
