Recall that the PDP Governors had raised an alarm over the escalating cost of living in Nigeria, drawing parallels with Venezuela’s economic hardship.
The governors warned that the country could be treading a similar path to Venezuela under the administration of President Bola Tinubu if the economic hardship is not addressed immediately.
The forum’s chairman, Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State, voiced these concerns during an interaction with journalists after the forum’s meeting, which took place at the Oyo State Governor’s Lodge in Asokoro, Abuja, on Monday.

However, according to Onanuga, the nation’s present economic and security challenges should not be left to the ruling party and the Tinubu administration alone.
He stated that every Nigerian should be concerned about the nation’s economic problem, adding that some of the current price increases are artificial.
