Following the meeting of the Southern Governors in Lagos State yesterday, it has been reported that Sani Yabagi, the National Chairman of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) has likened Governors of Southern States to Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho.
According to reports, the Southern Governors discussed the invasion and other matters of national concern including insecurity, open grazing and the Electoral Act during the meeting.
They also reportedly demanded prior notification if for any reason federal agencies need to undertake an operation and also set September 21, 2021 as the deadline for anti-open grazing law promulgation in member-states.
According to reports, the southern Governors rejected the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB), the removal of electronic transmission of results from the Electoral Act and demanded that the presidency be zoned to the South in 2023.
Yabagi has however reacted to all these by telling Channels Television that the resolutions are divisive and belittles the offices of the leaders.
Yabagi stated that, “I think the coming together of the governors of the Southern extraction is a very wrong way to go about issues that affect the politics of the nation. Because the message here, unfortunately, is like ganging up against the rest of Nigerians, particularly the North, by state actors.”
He made it known that, “It beats my imagination. It is unfortunate that we don’t have governors today coming together for issues of principles…These governors are not anything better than Igboho or Kanu…”, the party chair mocked.”
