PDP Governors To Meet Today In Bauchi


Governors under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are set to meet on Monday in Bauchi to deliberate on the current state of the nation, Director General of the PDP Governors’ Forum, Cyril Maduabum said. Maduabum made the disclosure in a statement, saying the Governors will also examine situations of their respective states ranging from “issues of unemployment, the generally parlous state of the Nigerian economy, the health of Nigeria’s democracy including the Electoral Act Amendment, Constitution Alteration Bills pending before the National Assembly,” among others.

He further said the governors will compare and exchange ideas on how to solve current challenges in their states.

“The governors will continue to benchmark and exchange information and ideas on best practices on various aspects of governance in their respective states, as the PDP states and their governors are currently the major beacons of light, delivering substantial democracy benefits through projects and policies impacting on the lives of Nigerians, within the limits of the general bad governance by All Progressives Congress, APC-led federal government.

“The governors will also receive reports of some of the committees working on various aspects of party repositioning including the e- registration programme of the party, the statement read in part,” Maduabum added.

He assured that the PDP Governors’ Forum will continue to pay close attention to the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, particularly in areas of security and service delivery.
