“The Governors seem to have retreated and do no more than go to Abuja and collect. We want to see more action on the part of our governors. I am happy that Kayode Fayemi my good friend will be on because he is the Chairman of the Governors Forum yet they are not obeying the constitution”, Agbakoba said."State Governors Have Shown They Are Irresponsible", Ex-NBA President
Speaking further, Agbakoba insisted there is nothing wrong with the nation’s constitution and the laws are not the nation’s problem.

Making reference to the United Kingdom and United States, the human rights activist and Maritime lawyer explained that the place is working well even without a constitution because there is strong leadership. “It was strong leadership by the governors that restrained Trump’s undemocratic practices. So, a lot depends on accountability; on leadership qualities coming out of our governors because, at the end of the day, the federal government is only a small fraction of the Nigerian equation”, Agbakoba added."State Governors Have Shown They Are Irresponsible", Ex-NBA PresidentTRENDING VIDEO OF THE DAY: After Laughing What Do You Learn – Frank Donga Spills It All
