Reacting, Yabagi told Channels Television that the resolutions are divisive and belittles the offices of the leaders.
“I think the coming together of the governors of the Southern extraction is a very wrong way to go about issues that affect the politics of the nation.
“Because the message here, unfortunately, is like ganging up against the rest of Nigerians, particularly the North, by state actors.”
He said governors should be the ones to protect the unity and ensure that all the parts of the country will be comfortable with whoever emerges as the President in 2023.
Yabagi stated that the content of the forum’s communique was targeted at the North and its people.
“When you look at grazing, insecurity, politics of 2023…how can we have elected officials, governors for that matter, coming out in this matter to emphasize things that divide us, not talking about things that unite the country?
“It beats my imagination. It is unfortunate that we don’t have governors today coming together for issues of principles…These governors are not anything better than Igboho or Kanu…”, the party chair mocked.
