The All Progressives Congress governors forum Chaired by Imo State Governor Rochas in Abuja criticised the Federal Government and the Peoples Democratic Party.
The governors, in their Christmas message to Nigerians under the aegis of Progressives Governors’ Forum, said there were enough evidence to proof that the Federal Government and the ruling party had lost touch with Nigerians and should no longer be trusted.
The governors said this in a statement in Abuja.
Governors, who signed the statement were Murtala Nyako(Adamawa), Kashim Shetima(Borno), Adams Oshiomhole (Edo), Kayode Fayemi( Ekiti), Rabiu Kwankwanso (Kano), Abdulfatah Ahmed (Kwara), Babatunde Fashola(Lagos), Tanko Almakura (Nasarawa), Ibikunle Amosu (Ogun), Abiola Ajimoni (Oyo), Rauf Aregbesola (Osun), Rotimi Amaechi (Rivers), Aliyu Wamakko (Sokoto), Rochas Okorocha (Imo), Ibrahim Geidam(Yobe) and Abdulaziz Yari(Zamfara).
“Against the background of today’s federal government that steers the affairs of the nation based on convenience rather than constitutionality, Nigerians have been reduced to helpless observers of a presidency that is only efficient in weakening its moral authority, making it difficult to relate with other levels and tiers of government in accordance with the provisions of the 1999 Constitution as amended.
“The hard and incomprehensible reality is that the Presidency, federal government and ruling PDP have become reckless, dishonest and completely insensitive to minimum requirement of protecting the lives and property of Nigerians. “Government, as far as the conduct of the federal government shows, is all about the political aspirations of functionaries of government, notably Mr. President.” -their statement read
