The national Christian elders forum has called on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to stop sending former governors who mismanaged the resources of their states to the senate.
Christian elders that on Thursday, September 7, made this known while paying a courtesy call on the national leadership of the PDP at the party’s national headquarters in Abuja.
Punch reports that the forum was led by Solomon Asemota, its chairman said it was unfortunate that former governors, who looted their state treasuries are the ones making laws for the nation today.
Asemota said:''It is very sad that governors, who have mismanaged their states and looted the states treasury dry, now find retirement space in the National Assembly.
''Why can we not have political parties that will say ‘no’ to such wasteful managers of state resources?.
''Why do political parties keep recycling for the country discredited and outrightly incompetent persons as leaders of the country?.
''The incompetent and wasteful individuals, who mismanaged the commonwealth of the people, still find abode in political parties as power brokers''.
Asemota said what was more unfortunate was the information that the governors of the region announced that the quit notice had been suspended.
He said:''We wish to stress that the conduct of these governors is subversive of their oath of office wherein they swore to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the law''.
Meanwhile, RationalTV.blogspot.com had reported that a high court in Yola, the Adamawa state capital sentenced former state governor Barrister Bala James Ngillarito five years in jail without option of fine over corruption-related cases.
