Published

The Kwara state governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed has called for reconciliation following the split of the Nigeria Governor’s Forum (NGF) into two factions after its leadership election last week.

abdulfatah_ahmed_8754653The Governor warned that the reconciliation is essential in order not to lose sight of the peer review for development which motivated the forum’s emergence in the first place.

Mr Ahmed made the call in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Wahab Oba, where the governor urged his colleagues to “shun divisive political tendencies and bury the hatchet while focusing on using the NGF as a platform for driving active development for the benefit of the people.”

According to him, “if there are issues as regards the election of the forum’s chairman, we should use the same platform to resolve them rather than fanning the embers of discord in the media.”

“Our choking security challenges should not be compounded with political conundrum,” he advised his peers.

Governor Ahmed also called on the leadership of South-South Governors Forum, the Northern State Governors Forum, the South East Governors Forum and their colleagues from the south west to utilize their various platforms to strengthen the forum and complement the leadership at the federal level.

He noted, “As a peer-review platform for good governance, the NGF should offer critical development advice to first term governor’s such as himself so that democracy can be made more meaningful for the people, stressing that deliberate efforts should be made to ensure that the system is not overheated.”

Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Explodes Over #LekkiMassacre Of #EndSARS Protesters

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has condemned the attack on peaceful #EndSARS protesters at Lekki toll gate in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city.

It was reported earlier that soldiers of the Nigerian Army invaded a peaceful protest at Lekki toll gate on Tuesday evening.

Reacting to the attack on the peaceful protesters in Lagos in a tweet, Kanu, a director of Radio Biafra, said it is “shocking that Southern Nigerians are tolerating a Northern Muslim” President Muhammadu Buhari “using the Army to kill unarmed Southern #EndSARS protesters in Lagos” on a “Southern soil”.

The apparently furious IPOB leader wondered if “Southern Christian President” would ever “contemplate killing unarmed Northern Muslim protesters in Kano”, northern Nigeria.

Kanu tweeted: It’s shocking that Southern Nigerians are tolerating a Northern Muslim @NGRPresident using the Army to KILL unarmed Southern #EndSARS protesters in Lagos, a Southern soil? Would a Southern Christian President ever contemplate killing unarmed Northern Muslim protesters in KANO?”
