Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, has warned Governors in the southern part of the country to stop blaming the federal government over national issues.
Bello spoke while featuring on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ programme, warning his counterparts from the Southern States to be careful of their utterances so as not to heat up the polity.
He said, “Let me caution each and every one of us, leaders across board including governors and all of the leaders across Nigeria that we should be careful about the words we use,” Bello warned.
“When we are talking of security, unity and national cohesion of Nigeria, as leaders and politicians, we should be careful about the words we use when we are addressing these various topical issues.
“When it is titled or when it appears as if you are fighting President Muhammadu Buhari, our father and our President, we are all getting it wrong because we get to where we are today as a result of maladministration of successive administrations.
“There have been collective failures across board, so let’s not just blame it alone on the federal government or Mr President.”
