In light of the worsening hardships faced by Nigerians, governors affiliated with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have appealed to the federal government, led by the All Progressives Congress (APC), to urgently tackle the situation before it spirals out of control.
The governors attributed the current hardships to the economic and security challenges plaguing the nation. Following a meeting held in Abuja, they issued a communique expressing their concerns and recommendations.
Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State, who chairs the PDP Governors’ Forum, read out the communique, which highlighted the need for the establishment of a multi-level police force.
“The meeting assessed the state of the nation and acknowledged the hardships faced by Nigerians due to the economic and security challenges confronting the country. Consequently, the forum urges the federal government to take immediate action, engaging all sub-national governments in initiatives aimed at finding lasting solutions to these crises,” stated the communique.
The PDP governors emphasized their commitment to contributing to efforts aimed at restoring security and providing relief to the people. They reiterated their call for the implementation of state police, with appropriate safeguards in place to prevent any potential abuse or overreach by any level of government.
The falling value of the Naira was also a subject of concern for the forum. They called upon the monetary and fiscal authorities to identify suitable solutions to address this issue.
