According to the Arewa Youths Consultative Forum, not all Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, completely endorse its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
Other APC governors, according to Yerima Shettima, are opposed to Tinubu, including Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai, Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello, and Zamfara State Governor Bello Matawalle.
Shettima told the Daily Post that Tinubu has what it takes to do it right in 2023, but the majority of APC governors’ body language is against him.
Shettima accused most APC governors of going behind to negotiate their ways with the opposition, adding that they are paying lip service.
According to Shettima: “APC has all it takes to get it right, but the body language of the governors is not encouraging. The body language of the governors other than those that have demonstrated the willingness to do it right like Mattawalle, Yahaya Bello, and El-Rufai, others are just paying lip services.
“They are just paying lip service that they would promise but fail; apart from these governors I mentioned, the other APC governors are not harmonizing anything even in their state.
“The APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, should realize that they are not serious or trying to let him down. Relying on only governors this time around would not help matters; he should go down and meet leaders of stakeholders of various groups and work with them so that when the chips are down, the governors will be left with no choice but to come back.
“Some of them go behind to negotiate with the opposition; apart from those I mentioned, a lot of them are not with him, and their body language does not indicate seriousness.
“If they want to support Tinubu, they should, and if they are not interested, they should come out like other governors and say no, they are not working with him, just like Wike who says he’s a PDP member but won’t work with Atiku.
“A lot of them are not committed and not serious to Tinubu’s course.”
