Tinubu Talks Tough, Urges Nigerians To Vote Out Non-performing Governors


  • By Ajani Adebayo

Nigeria president, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu has called on Nigerians to vote out any governors who are not performing up to expectation.

The president made the appeal at the Presidential Villa, while responding to the request of some Islamic scholars that the Federal Government should monitor the distribution of palliatives given to states to cushion the effects of removal of fuel subsidy.


In his words, “The people reside in the states. Even if I set up a panel, I will have to go through the governors and the local governments. We will continue to talk to the governors. Nigerians must hold them accountable.

According to him, “It’s unheard of that in a constitutional democracy; a president will sit here and give orders to states. I can only appeal to them to implement. The people reside in the states, and if the governor is not doing well, the people must vote them out,” he said.
