PDP govs meet over economy, insecurity, Electoral Act
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum is meeting today in Bauchi to discuss a number of burning issues, including the parlous state of the economy and the health of Nigeria’s democracy, particularly the amended Electoral Act.
The state chief executives would also examine the state of the nation and happenings in the regions.
The forum’s Director-General, CID Maduabum, in a statement yesterday in Abuja, hinted that some thorny matters arising from Constitution alteration bills pending before the National Assembly would get adequate attention.
Disclosing that the worsening insecurity in the country is to be accorded sufficient interest too, the body stated: “The meeting will continue to interrogate the Federal Government’s response to the insecurity still pervading the country and proffer workable solutions.”
It said the governors would continue to “benchmark and exchange information and ideas on best practices relating to various aspects of governance in their respective states.”
Maduabum continued: “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 the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government.”
According to the statement, the governors would also receive reports of some of the committees working on various aspects of party’s repositioning, especially the e-registration project of the PDP.
