Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) recently gathered in Abuja to discuss pressing issues affecting the nation.
During the meeting, the governors called on the federal government to take immediate action to address the country’s economic challenges, the devaluation of the Nigerian Naira, and the establishment of state police forces.
The PDP governors emphasized the need for urgent initiatives that involve all sub-national governments in tackling the nation’s economic woes.
They expressed concern over the current state of the economy and stressed the importance of collaborative efforts to find lasting solutions.
Additionally, the governors reiterated their long-standing demand for the establishment of state police forces.
However, they emphasized the need for appropriate safeguards to prevent any potential abuse or overreach by different tiers of government.
This highlights their commitment to ensuring that the establishment of state police forces is done in a responsible and accountable manner.
The falling value of the Nigerian Naira was also a cause for alarm among the governors.
They expressed their concerns and called for measures to stabilize the currency, which is crucial for the overall economic stability of the country.
During the meeting, the governors passed a vote of confidence in the National Working Committee (NWC) led by Iliya Damagum.
They urged the NWC to initiate the process of convening meetings for various party organs, including the National Executive Committee (NEC).
The meeting, which took place at the Oyo State Governor’s lodge in Abuja, was attended by several PDP governors and deputy governors.
