Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party have asked the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government to throw in the towel if it cannot mobilise all organs and tiers of government for sustainable solutions to the economic challenges confronting Nigerians.

There has been a recent rise in food prices and economic difficulties, which has made it challenging for Nigerians to buy necessary items.

The PDP governors, under the leadership of the Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, on Monday, said Nigeria under Tinubu was almost on the path to becoming like Venezuela.

In response, the Minister of Information and  National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, stated in a release that drawing parallels between Nigeria and Venezuela was mischievous, emphasizing that many of the PDP governors have failed to fulfill obligations such as paying minimum wage, gratuities, and pensions.

He stated, “It is far-fetched when the PDP governors, who are supposed to be major players in driving economic growth and prosperity for our citizens in their respective states, mischievously and falsely compare our current economic challenges to Venezuela.”

Reacting in a statement on Saturday, the  PDP Governors Forum’s Director General, Cyril Maduabum, explained that the governors of the party patriotically offered advice to the Federal Government, suggesting initiatives that involve both the Federal and State Governments to address the security and economic challenges confronting the nation.

He said the suggestions and advice were provided as contributions from a group of patriotic governors who actively participate in governance.

The Forum praised Tinubu for organising a special meeting to address some of the raised issues and urged that the resolutions of the meeting should be implemented.
