- Southern governors have been asked to stop attacking President Buhari
- The call was made by Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state
- Bello called on the governors to start restructuring from their states
A warning has been sent to governors from the southern region. The warning was given by Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state.
He expressly warned the governor against fighting President Muhammadu Buhari or blaming him for the problems of the country.
Bello disclosed this while featuring on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ programme.
According to him, Buhari has restructured the country by granting judicial, legislative and local government autonomy, amongst others.
He consequently warned the governors to be careful of their utterances so as not heat up the polity.
Going further, added that Buhari has restructured by signing autonomy to local governments, legislature and judiciary.
Bello asked the governors to start the change they want to see from their states by granting judicial and local government autonomy in their domains.
In another report, Legit.ng reported that in what will divide opinion in Nigeria, Bello praised the performance of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to him, the party has performed beyond the 16-year achievement of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Specifically, he said the ruling party has delivered good governance to Nigerians.
"Largely, APC has performed beyond what PDP has achieved in their 16 years of governance in Nigeria. APC’s successes today within six years outweigh the successes of 16 years that they ruled. The statistics are there. We will remind Nigerians of where APC inherited Nigeria and where we are today.”
Meanwhile, a former member of the National Assembly, Senator Dino Melaye has thrown a jibe at Governor Bello, his political archrival, saying he cannot be Nigeria’s president.
Governor Bello is one of the Nigerian politicians who has been widely reported to be interested in succeeding President Muhammdu Buhari in 2023.
However, the former Kogi West senator took to Twitter on Saturday, April 17, saying Governor Bello who used to be his political ally "can only be the president of Agasa Development Union in Okene."
