The National Chairman of the Action Democratic Party, ADP, Sani Yabagi, has said that the Southern States Governors are behaving like Yoruba Nation Agitator, Sunday Igboho, and IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu, in their gang up against President Muhammadu Buhari and the entire Northern region of the country,
Speaking on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’, on Monday night, Yabagi, who was the ADP Presidential Candidate in the 2019 elections, stressed that the meeting of the Southern States Governors was a gang up against Northern Nigeria, adding that, the Governors are not different from the Agitators calling for the balkanisation of Nigeria.
His exact words: “All the things listed in that communique from their meeting seems to be a kind of ganging up against the North.
“When you look at the grazing issue, insecurity, the issue of politics of 2023, how can we have elected Officials, Governors for that matter, coming in this manner to emphasise things that divides us? Not talking about things that unite the country, beats my imagination.
“It is unfortunate that we do not have Governors today coming together on issues of principle. These Governors are not anything better than Igboho or Kanu, or any person’s not elected to protect the nation.
“By now we should not be talking about these dichotomies that have nothing to do with good governance.”
He further said that the Southern States Governors should be careful not to scare Northerners who control chunk of the vote that will determine whether power shifts to the South or remains in the North.
He threatened: “I think we are getting it wrong, and the earlier these Governors wake up to their responsibilities of ensuring that this country remains one strong insolvable, the better for everybody.
“The way they are going will scare the North, and the North in fact controls the largest chunk of the vote they need to become the President of this country.”
