PDP Governors meet today on insecurity, electoral act amendment, others

Members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum are meeting in Bauchi State on Monday to deliberate on issues affecting the party, insecurity, the present economic crisis and also parts of legislation at the National Assembly.

The Director-General, PDPGF, C. I. D. Maduabum, announced this in a statement issued on Sunday entitled, ‘PDP Governors Meet in Bauchi’.

The statement partly read, “The PDP Governors’ Forum will meet on Monday, July 26, 2021, at Bauchi, Bauchi State, the Pearl of Tourism.

“The meeting will examine and deliberate on the current state of the nation and the state of their respective states.

“Issues of unemployment, the general parlous state of the Nigerian economy, the health of Nigeria’s democracy, including the Electoral Act amendment and constitution alteration bills that are pending before the National Assembly will top discussions at the meeting.

“The meeting will continue to interrogate the Federal Government’s response to the insecurity still pervading the country and proffer workable solutions.

“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 the APC-led Federal Government.”

The statement further said the Governors would also receive reports of some of the committees working on several aspects of the party’s repositioning, which include e-registration.

While Bauchi State Governor, Senator Bala Mohammed, is the chief host, the Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal will head the meeting as PDPGF Chairman.
