Nigeria drifting towards becoming a failed state under APC, says PDP governors

State governors of the Peoples Democratic Party extraction have stated that the country is gradually moving towards becoming a failed state if the current trend of security challenges continues.

This statement was jointly made by the governor of Sokoto state who doubles as the chairman of the forum Aminu Tambuwal while speaking on Friday after a meeting of the PDP governors’ forum in Makurdi, Benue state capital.

He said the country is experiencing an alarming drift under the watch of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Tambuwal, who read the communiqué issued at the end of the meeting, said the governors expressed deep concern over the deteriorating relations between various groups in the country, saying the APC government lacks the capacity to govern.

The PDP governors said Nigeria is in dire need of leadership at the federal level to avert “looming disaster”.

“The meeting noted and condemned the alarming drift of Nigeria which if allowed to continue, will make Nigeria a failed state under the watch of the All Progressives Congress government,” Tambuwal said.

“The meeting was similarly alarmed that security of lives and property of Nigerians are no longer guaranteed under the present government as a result of leadership incompetence and mismanagement of the nation’s affairs.

“While noting that governors have a role to play in the handling of some of the worsening situations, they regret their hands are tied behind their backs as the entire coercive authority in the country is monopolised by the APC federal government.

“Time has come to take advantage of the ongoing Constitution Amendment process to decentralise the security architecture of Nigeria and involve state and local governments.”

The governors also aligned with the calls for restructuring of the country, stating that the process will bring together various groups, as Nigeria cannot afford another civil war.
