The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Governors’ Forum, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has lamented that the bad governance of the federal government is affecting Nigerians.
He said this on Monday while commissioning the new Bauchi Governor’s office and Government House annex currently being constructed by the state government.
Tambuwal, who is also the Sokoto State Governor, said that all the PDP governors across the country are performing in their various states even as he called on Nigerians to always pray for them.
“All our governors are performing to the glory of God. We seek your continued prayers for all our governors and indeed the federal government, if it (federal government) doesn’t perform… It is not performing. If it doesn’t perform, it will affect us. It is already affecting the entirety of Nigeria.
“We are feeling the impact of the bad governance at the centre. We are praying and hoping that that time shall come when the PDP will return to power and restore good governance in Nigeria,” he said.
He congratulated the Bauchi State Governor for the constitution of the Government House project which commenced 30 years ago, saying “it takes a person who believes in good governance to complete a project which started 30 years ago.”
He added, “What we believe in the PDP is that governance is a continuum and any project that is meaningful and would add value to the lives of our people, which we inherit from our predecessors, be they of the opposition or of the same party, is concluded.
“And that is what Gov. Bala Mohammed has done with this Government House annex. We expected no less because you performed as FCT Minister, you performed as Senator of Nigeria and now you are performing in Bauchi State. We are indeed very proud of you.
“Several of us have been here some months back to either commission projects or lay foundation of several projects that are being executed here in Bauchi State, courtesy of your administration.”
In his brief address, Governor Bala Mohammed thanked the PDP Governors’ Forum for taking out time from the schedule of their meeting in Bauchi State to commission the project.
He said, “We have never hosted 15 governors in our lives as a state in this part of the country and that was why we leveraged on your presence to commission this project which is partially completed.
“This is because I know that you are the representatives of God in your various states delivering services, infrastructure and leadership.”
