Nigeria’s former President, Goodluck Jonathan has said state governors are the ones “running” Nigeria.
Speaking in Benin, Edo State on Sunday while addressing journalists, Jonathan emphasized that the Nigeria Governors Forum remains the best platform to discuss issues affecting Nigeria.
While lamenting over the antagonism between Southern and Northern governors which he said was uncalled for, he stressed that the coming together of all the governors in a round table to discuss and proffer solutions to issues affecting Nigeria would help the President.
“Governors themselves should continue to meet, I don’t really love a situation where the Northern governors will meet then the Southern governors will cry foul.
“Then the Southern governors will meet then the Northern governors will cry foul,. That will not help our country.
“The governors through the governors forum should meet, they are the people who run this country, the President is just one person in Abuja.
“The states, especially in a country where the local governments are very weak, it’s the states that people fall back to.
