Alhaji Ghali Umar Na’abba, a former speaker of the house of representatives has accused state governors of being the problem of Nigeria's politics, Daily Trust reported.

He described state governors as a serious threat to Nigeria's democracy while making reference to their dominant influence on political parties' decision-making activities.

The former lawmaker made this known while speaking in his county home in Kano where he received delegates from the Na’abba Youth Organization.

He said: “Since 1999 governors have been the problem of the country. They contributed to the death of democracy within the political parties. And when there are no elections within the parties, then incompetent leaders will emerge and that will affect the whole political system and the country’s development too."

He described the consensus technique of political parties in their state primary elections as unacceptable and totally wrong.

The former speaker said the tenets of democracy is when opportunities is given to all without any ounce of compromise.

He said: "Give chances for elections within parties so that the masses and the rich will have roles to play. Only that can bring changes. Not what they (governors) are doing. That will not lead us anywhere. Rather it will deteriorate the situation of the country.”
