In preparation for the forthcoming guber elections in some States, President Bola Tinubu has asked Nigerians go against underperforming Governors in the polls.
Tinubu while speaking at the Presidential villa on Thursday urged Nigerians to not just look at the Federal Government but also hold State Government accountable.
In his words:
“The people reside in the states. Even if I set up a panel, I will have to go through the governors and the local governments.
We will continue to talk to the governors. Nigerians must hold them accountable.
“It’s unheard of that in a constitutional democracy, a president will sit here and give orders to states. I can only appeal to them to implement.
“The people reside in the states, and if the governor is not doing well, the people must vote them out.”
This may not be a far cry from the call of electorates who will be voting in Imo, Bayelsa and Kogi States in the forthcoming November 11th elections.
Where both governors of Bayelsa and Imo will be seeking a second term.
