COMMUNIQUÉ ISSUED AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE MEETING OF THE GOVERNORS OF SOUTHERN NIGERIA AT THE LAGOS STATE GOVERNMENT HOUSE, IKEJA, LAGOS STATE, ON MONDAY, 5TH JULY, 2021 NIGERIA.

The Southern Governors Forum at the end of the meeting held on Monday, 5th July, 2021 reviewed the situation in the Country and focused on the current security situation, constitutional amendment, Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB).

Rising from the meeting, the Forum agreed on the following:

1. Re-affirmed their commitment to the unity of Nigeria on the pillars of equity, fairness, justice, progress and peaceful co-existence between and amongst its people.


2. The Forum reiterates its commitment to the politics of equity, fairness and unanimously agrees that the presidency of Nigeria be rotated between Southern and Northern Nigeria and resolved that the next president of Nigeria should emerge from the Southern Region.


3. Security
a. The Forum reviewed the security situation in the country and commends security operatives for their relentless efforts in restoring security and safety and commiserates with families and loved ones of those who have fallen in the line of duty;
b. Re-emphasised the need for State Police;
c. Resolved that if for any reason security institutions need to undertake an operation in any State, the Chief Security Officer of the State must be duly informed;
d. the forum frowns at selective criminal administration of Justice and resolved that arrests should be made within the ambit of the Law and fundamental human rights;
e. Set a timeline of Wednesday, 1st September, 2021 for the promulgation of the anti open grazing law in all member States; and
f. Resolved that Funds deducted from the Federation Account for the Nigeria Police Security Trust Fund should be distributed among the States and Federal Government to combat security challenges.


4. Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) Law:
i. The Forum commends the National Assembly for the progress made in the passage of the PIB;
ii. the Forum rejects the proposed 3% and support the 5% share of the oil revenue to the host community as recommended by the House of Representatives;
iii. the forum also rejects the proposed 30% share of profit for the exploration of oil and gas in the basins;
iv. However, the forum rejects the ownership structure of the proposed Nigeria National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC). The Forum disagrees that the company be vested in the Federal Ministry of Finance but should be held in trust by Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA) since all tiers of Government have stakes in that vehicle.


5. In order to consolidate our democracy and strengthen the Electoral process, the Southern Governors’ Forum reject the removal of the Electronic transmission of the election result from the electoral act; and also rejects the confirmation of exclusive jurisdiction in pre-election matters on the Federal High Court.

I support all the resolutions of the southern governors fully. For the first time, they rose to the occasion. This is what we have been advocating for long. They should all be commended.

As for the 2023 presidency; this bold statement is just the first step. All the governors should go back to the NEC of their respective political parties and ensure that their presidential ticket is zoned to the south. No southern governor should support a northerner at the party primary level. They should also reach out to their northern colleagues who are of like minds and get their buy-in.

Any southerner that supports a northerner should be dealt with. 2023 must be strictly a southern affair.

I like the fact that they've put a deadline for the passage of anti grazing bill in each state.

Commendable

All the points are top notch especially the electronic transmission of results to reduce rigging of elections.

Another good one is rejecting the satanic PIB passed. Our Southern legislators are just useless, allowing governors to do their work

No move to address the difference in amount of representatives between the nothern and southern states.south should have equal states as the north so legislative robbery will be checked.

30% to look for non existence oil in the basins. If the money has been used to generate electricity it would have been ok. You see why Buhari rejected the robust one passed by Saraki led House. Nigeria is a funny land. Yet some deluded folks are here praising what will put them in perpetual slavery.....
