Governors of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC have condemned agitations by some people to have an Interim National Government ING in place, rather than swear in the President-Elect, Asíwájú Bola Tinubu on May 29. Urging the Department of State Services DSS to initiate the arrest and prosecution of those sponsoring such agitations, the governors said the development was not only reasonable but designed to truncate Nigeria’s democracy.

Chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum PGF and Governor of Kebbi state Abubakar Atiku Bagudu in a statement on Friday n behalf of his colleagues said, “the Progressive Governors’ Forum notes the press statement issued by the Department of State Services DSS on the unfortunate, condemnable and treasonable conduct of some undemocratic elements who are agitating for an interim government. We condemn such agitations. It is commendable, however, that the Department of State Services exposed the plot, and we call upon them to arrest and prosecute anyone involved.

“It is ironic that after the Presidential, National Assembly, Gubernatorial and State Assembly elections in which all the major parties recorded varying successes and disappointments in different constituencies, and with our country being appreciated around the globe, some self-serving individuals are unfortunately seeking to sabotage our democratic progress”.
