Governors not at logger heads with National Assembly over Ameded Electoral Act – Atiku Bagudu
Written by News Room on November 28, 2021
The Kebbi State Governor, Senator Atiku Bagudu, has said that the controversy surrounding the amendment to the Electoral Act to accommodate direct primary didn’t connote that the governors were at loggerheads with the National Assembly members.
Bagudu described the divergent views exhibited by the governors and federal lawmakers on the matter as democracy in action and not division or fight between the states’ Chief executives and federal parliamentarians.
Also, the governor of Sokoto state and Vice Chairman, Nigeria’s Governors forum, Hon. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has canvassed for unity among diverse Nigerians for radical development, saying development of any nation doesn’t recognise parties, ethnicities and religions.
Governors Bagudu and Tambuwal, accompanied by their counterpart from Jigawa State, Governor Mohammed Badaru Abubakar, spoke at various locations in Ekiti, while commissioning road projects initiated by Governor Kayode Fayemi to mark the third anniversary of his administration.
The roads are the Ijan-Igbemo-Ilupeju, Aramoko-Erinjiyan and Oye-Ayede-Isan-Otun roads.
