Adamu's comment came after the PGF unanimously elected Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state as the new chairman of the forum.

Uzodinma maintained that all the presidential candidates in the 2023 election promised that fuel subsidy would not stay if they were elected.

According to Adamu, the APC NWC had wished to receive the party's governors soon after the governorship election and state House of Assembly poll.

He added that the party had thought that it was important for Tinubu to be on the ground if they were to have an essential meeting with the progressives governors after the elections, but the president was away for five weeks.

Adamu then said when Tinubu returned to Nigeria, the issue of the leadership of the 10th National Assembly took centre stage, making their plans difficult to achieve.

Otti, Alia, other new governors freeze state bank accounts, give reasons reported that on Monday, May 29, Nigeria experienced a major transition in its political sphere as there was a transmission of power from one government to another at the federal and state levels.

President Bola Tinubu seemed to have kept his promise to hit the ground running on getting to the office as he announced the removal of fuel subsidy, which has plunged the country into another dilemma.

Similarly, some newly sworn-in governors appear to have followed in his footsteps.
