Meanwhile, the Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) has urged state governors from the 17 southern states to leave President Muhammadu Buhari alone and channel their grievances to the National Assembly.

Newspot recalls that 17 Southern State Governors had two days back converged on Asaba, Delta State capital, where they made some resolutions and demands from the Federal government.


They demanded a ban on open grazing in the south and urged the president to convene a national dialogue summit, restructure the country.

Other demands included devolution of power, state police and new revenue allocation formula, among others which they believed would abate the cries of secession among different groups in the country.


Reacting in a statement signed by its Chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Madueke, BMO pointed out that the National Assembly is in the right position to implement their demands.
