Nigeria: PDP Group Laments Non-Perfomance of Governors

Benin City — A group in Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, under the aegis of Save PDP Group, has lamented that majority of the governors elected on the platform of the party failed to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people of their respective states due to their over concentration on the internal politics of the party.

The group which threatened to adopt the Arab Spring protest against non-performing PDP governors, said: "We are irrevocably committed to ensure that PDP governors, who are not doing enough in their states but had made the Governor's Forum a body to confront the party on whose platform they emerged must be identified and sanctioned by the party."

In a statement by its National Chairman, Mr. Augustine Adebayo, in Benin City, Edo State, the group posited that members of the party in most of PDP states were sidelined by their governors, rather than administering their various states with a view to give the dividends of democracy to the people.
