Popoola said: the governors are the chief instigators of party crisis in their respective states and further frustrating efforts at granting autonomy to both local government’s and state assemblies despite President Mohammadu Buhari signing Executive Order 10, allowing for autonomy to relevant tiers of governance.”

According to him, “You can see for yourself what has happened with the Electoral Ammendament Bill, how they forced the president not to sign it into law.

“The NGF is too powerful and unless something is done about it, I am not sure we would have good governance in the country.”

He also spoke about his achievement as lawmaker, saying: “constituencies now look up to lawmakers to perform duties constitutionally meant to be performed by local government councils. All the local councils are now dead because the governors want it so.

“They are now bringing the same thing to APC and if care is not taken, what happened to APC in Anambra Governorship election might happen to the party across the country.”
