PDP governors to meet today in Bauchi over economy, others

Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will meet today in Bauchi to examine the state of the nation.
A statement on Sunday by the Director General of the PDP Governors’ Forum, C. I. D. Maduabum, said the governors will also discuss the growing unemployment and the shrinking economy with attendant dwindling resources.
The statement added that the health of the nation’s democracy, including the controversial Electoral Act Amendment pending before the National Assembly, will also form part of the discussion.
It said the PDP governors will also deliberate on and review developments in their states on the growing unemployment and insecurity across the nation.
“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 APC led Federal Government.
“The governors will also receive reports of some of the committees working on various aspects of party repositioning, including the E- Registration programme of the party,” the statement added.
The meeting, which will be hosted by Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed, will be presided over by the chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum and Sokoto State Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal.
