PDP governors plan to meet on Monday regarding APC’s alternative’ due to the increasing difficulties the country faces under the present administration.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors plan to meet at Ibadan today, Monday the 17th of May to discuss the nation’s worsening insecurity.

The agenda of the meeting released by the Director-General of the PDP Governors Forum, Hon CID Maduabum, on Sunday the 16th of May, 2021. The meeting will be presided over by the PDP Chairman and Sokoto State governor, Aminu Tambuwa and it will focus on coming up with strategies to render the party a suitable alternative to the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).

“The meeting will further review the current state of the nation especially issues of national security and the economy, and also fine-tune strategies to support PDP as a viable and necessary alternative to the disastrous APC administration,” the statement said.

In addition, fifteen governors elected under the PDP will attend the meeting being hosted by Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State.

At the last meeting held in Makurdi, the PDP governors in their discussion called for the devolution of power. They also called for the restructuring of the country as a way not to prevent another civil war.

They had stated in a written statement that the country was falling at an alarming rate that could lead it to a failed state if the issues are not addressed urgently.

The governors also expressed their concern about the degenerating relations between various groups in Nigeria.

“Indeed, all our fault lines and differences are being stretched to the limit by a government that clearly lacks the capacity to govern. The meeting agreed that this has given rise to ethnic and tribal tensions, religious divisions, and various forms of social and political cleavages.”

The governors came to the conclusion that Nigeria was in major need of leadership at the Federal level to prevent a potential disaster from happening.

Furthermore, they expressed concern that the security of lives and property of Nigerians was no longer guaranteed under the present administration as a result of leadership incompetence and mismanagement of the nation’s affairs.

While noting that governors have a role to play in the handling of some of the worsening situations, they explained that their hands are tied because the entire coercive authority in the country is controlled by the APC federal government.
