Jonathan Urges State Governors to Join Forces on Nigeria’s Problems   

Jonathan Urges State Governors to Join Forces on Nigeria’s Problems   

Former Nigeria’s president, Goodluck Jonathan, urged state governors to eschew hostility and come together under one umbrella to discuss and resolve the problems facing the country.

Jonathan made the remarks in Benin on Sunday after attending the thanksgiving service organised to mark the 50th birthday anniversary of Pastor Charles Osazuwa, General Overseer of Rock of Ages Christian Assembly International, Benin.

Former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, on Sunday also called on the governors to stop waiting on President Muhammadu Buhari to provide solution to the issues facing the country, urging them to work together through a unified forum to tackle the problems.

Jonathan said, “The governors should continue to meet; I don’t love a situation where the Northern governors will meet, then the Southern governors will cry foul and vice versa. This will not help our country.

“The governors through the governors’ forum should meet, they are the people who run this country, the President is just one person in Abuja.”

He condemned the antagonism among the governors, saying, “I don’t really enjoy the antagonism between governors, they should come together and discuss.

“If there are issues affecting one or two states, I think the governors should see how they can collectively come with a way to address those issues,” he added.
