President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has called on Nigerians to vote against governors who are performing below expectations.
Speaking at the Presidential Villa on Thursday, the President urged the citizens to hold their respective state governors accountable.
The president further advised Nigerians who refuse to implement the distribution of federal government palliatives to states to cushion the effect of the fuel subsidy removal.
“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,” Tinubu began.
“We will continue to talk to the governors. Nigerians must hold them accountable.
“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.”
