Meanwhile, a former president of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Olisa Agbakoba (SAN), has come down hard on Nigerian governors, who according to him, have no regard for the Nigerian Constitution.
Speaking on Saturday, May 1, during ThePlatform, a programme organised and hosted by the Senior Pastor of Covenant Nation, Poju Oyemade, Agbakoba said the state governors have not shown that they are responsible towards the constitution. According to him, the governors seem to do nothing more than "go to Abuja and collect".

Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah who was a speaker at ThePlatform criticised the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government for lacking empathy.
