“We urge him to show leadership at this moment by doing whatever is within his capacity and capabilities as a President, to fish out those who were involved in this act" were the words of the All Progressives Governors led by Owelle Rochas Okorocha of Imo State. They expressed worries over the escalating security issues in the country and called on President Jonathan to wake up as the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and protect Nigerians.
The wakeup call and challenge was made when they visited some of the victims of the Nyanya Motor Park bomb explosion at the National Hospital, Abuja. The governors announced they had decided to set up a trust fund to support the victims’ families. Okorocha emphasised this was not the time to apportion blame, but Nigerians irrespective of their party or religious affiliation must close ranks to ensure the safety of lives and property. So Mr President needs the governors to remind him of his duty now?
