Nigerian governors speak after Aisha Buhari alleges that things are not getting better in the country
Nigerian governors have declared that a recently reported comment by first lady Aisha Buhari to the effect that things are not getting better is an indictment on all politicians.
The governors claim that they are not the only ones indicted by the statement reportedly made by the first lady on Friday, November 29, in Abuja.
The Cable reports that the the Nigeria Governor's Forum (NGF) made its position known in a statement by Abdulrazaque Barkindo, its spokesperson.
The governors said they are making efforts to ensure the reduction of poverty in the country.
The statement said: “Governors are doing their best to lift Nigerians out of misery and Nigerians are beginning to witness an improvement in their standards of living."
The statement added listed some of these efforts to include that public schools in Kaduna are experiencing a face lift while the aged are being taken care of off in Ekiti.

“That the nation’s religious leaders have to be told by none other than the first lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari, that things are getting out of hand, is an indictment not just of governors, as the reporters would like the general public to believe, but of the nation’s entire political elite," the statement claimed.
The governors alleged that journalists twisted Aisha Buhari's claim to indicate that they were the only ones indicted by the lamentation.
“To insinuate, therefore, that the first lady was referring to governors when she said, ‘People cannot afford potable water in this country while we have governors,’ erroneously suggests that only state governors would meet God on the day of judgement," the NGF claimed.
