- The presidency has been faulted for the way it handled autonomies for the legislature and the judiciary
- According to Nigerian governors, the FG did not consult widely for this
- Specifically, the governors faulted the Executive Order 10 issued in 2020 by Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has been blamed over the controversy surrounding autonomies for the legislature and the judiciary.
The blame was laid at the president's feet by the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Punch reports.
In fact, the governors said they were not opposed to autonymy but the president did not consult wide over the issue.
This was disclosed by the NGF vice-chairman and governor of Sokoto state, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal while speaking in Ado Ekiti during a colloquium with the theme, The Judicial Autonomy: Perspective of the NGF.
He faulted the Executive Order 10 issued in 2020 by the president, saying Buhari was ill-advised on the issue, The Nation added.
Legit.ng had reported that Buhari said the growing insecurity and other threats bedevilling Nigeria are seriously affecting the country's national development.
Buhari on Wednesday, May 26, lamented that the insecurity was threatening his desires to achieve his ambitions for the nation. He made the remark through the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha at a security summit in Abuja.
While speaking at the event organised by the House of Representatives, Buhari gave the assurance that everything would be done to end the ugly development.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that a message has been sent to President Buhari by the Northern Elders Forum (NEF). The message is simple: Protect the nation’s territorial integrity and secure the lives of Nigerians.
Failure to do this, the forum asked him to accept that he is incapable of leading the nation. Going further, the forum condemned what it described as an attack on Fulanis in some part of the south, claiming northern people now live in fear.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by its director, publicity and advocacy, Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed. Ahmed also posited that the majority of Nigerians don’t want war and as such want the country to remain as one.
