“Reduce Burden On Buhari” – APC to state Governors


The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday charged state governors to ju­diciously utilize the monthly al­location they get from the Federal Government to address the issues of their people to decrease the weight on President Muhammadu Buhari.

Talking with FOJUSI, Yekini Nabena, the party’s Deputy Nation­al Publicity Secretary, said the majority of the issues in the nation today would have been decreased enormously if state governors had satisfied their duties as chief security officers of their respective states.

“If the governors take care of their states based on the allocations given to them, the problem at the cen­tre will be greatly reduced.

“But if the governors can­not even pay salaries in their states, then all the problems will be put at the centre.

“Now is the time to face ourselves and tell one anoth­er the truth. It is not about APC or PDP.

“What are the governors doing with their monthly al­location? The money is for the people of the state.

“So, if the governors judi­ciously use these resources for the benefit of the people, the problem at the centre will be less.”

Speaking further, Nabe­na said the outcome of the blockade of foodstuff from the North to the Southern part of Nigeria has demon­strated the fact that Nigeri­ans need each other to sur­vive.

Northern traders lost mil­lions of naira and sold their farm produce at ridiculously low prices as a result of the four-day blockade while the amount of foodstuffs such as cattle and yam also skyrock­eted in the South.

The APC said the event had further underscored the need for unity between the North and South.

According to him, “It is a two-way thing. Everybody needs each other. The North needs the South and the South needs the North.
