Governors on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have asked the federal government to commence negotiations with all agitators in Nigeria.
According to the governors, this would help quell the continued agitations across major parts of the country.
The New Telegraph reports that the governors further demanded that the Nigeria’s democratic processes must be improved upon for stability in the polity.
Quoting a statement from Salihu Moh Lukman, director-general of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF), the governors said: “While acknowledging that as a nation, we do have challenges, PGF believe that the resolution of those challenges rest with the development of our democracy and with it, the ascendency of structured processes of national consultations, negotiations and invariably agreements.
“As governors elected under APC, we will work with our party leaders, the federal government and all Nigerians who are committed to democratic development in all parts of the country to ensure unencumbered protection of lives of all citizens in every part of the territorial boundary of our nation.
“In line with the social democratic principles of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the PGF would promote all-inclusive government, for the development of policies and programs that improve the life of every Nigerian citizen, regardless of ethnicity and religious orientation.”
The APC governors, though condemned all agitations, said they are products of bad governance and weak system.
