11 govs vow to oppose third term


Ahead of the Governors’ Forum meeting, scheduled to hold on Wednesday, about 11 of the 36 state governors have vowed to oppose the attempt by the forum to endorse the alleged third term agenda of President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Ahead of the Governors’ Forum meeting, scheduled to hold on Wednesday, about 11 of the 36 state governors have vowed to oppose the attempt by the forum to endorse the alleged third term agenda of President Olusegun Obasanjo.

This is coming at a time when the five PDP governors in the South-West are allegedly calling on the President to go for a third term.

Some of the governors, who met weekend at Governor George Akume’s country home in Benue State, where they had gone to attend the burial of mother to the late Joseph Sarwuan Tarka, insisted that Obasanjo should not be allowed to stay a second longer than necessary in office.

Sources quoted Governor Abdulkadir Kure of Niger State as saying that after 2007, he (Kure) would have no business remaining in power, and that same should also be for Obasanjo, and the several other governors who are currently serving their second term in office.

And to ensure that the forum distanced itself completely from the knotty third term issue, the 11 governors have resolved to use the proposed Wednesday’s meeting to canvass for more support from their colleagues to oppose the third term agenda.

Daily Sun gathered that with the number of governors opposed to the third term bid increasing by the day, there is every likelihood that the number would still increase after the Wednesday’s meeting.
At a meeting with PDP South West governors in Abeokuta last Thursday, the Prersident was urged to go for third term because of what the governors called his various achievements in office.
