A member of House of Representatives member representing Edo State on the platform of People Democratic Party (PDP), Johnson Agbonayinma, has advised state governors under the control of PDP to focus more on dividends of democracy and de-emphasise  Governors’ Forum activities.

Agbonayinma told journalists in Abuja that it was necessary for state governors to prioritize their programs by caring for the people and ensure that dividend of democracy instead of focusing on governors’ association.

“I am not against anybody having governors’ forum or such, but what have we achieved with years of governors forum? I want to know?“Some of the governors have done worst in their states. I was speaking with one of the governors and he said he had stopped attending the meeting,” Agbonayinma said.

He said the governors should  spend more time in their respective states, instead of going to Abuja spending the taxpayer’s money that belongs to the state in the name of governors’ forum.
