President Bola Tinubu has urged governors under the aegis of the All Progressives Congress to convert opposition parties to their side.
The president gave the orientation on Friday in Abuja when he received members of the Progressive Governors Forum.
He implored governors elected on the platform of APC to design and implement policies that prioritise all Nigerians. He urged them to always consider the national interest above political affiliations, according to Vanguard.
President Tinubu lamented that one of the biggest challenges the nation faces is divisiveness, adding that development policies would only find full relevance in people’s lives when there is inclusivity, ownership and sustainability.
In a stattement issued by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Chief Ajuri Ngelale, Tinubu advised that the governing party must work towards healing and unifying the country.
“You can convert people. You can appeal to people to come to your side,” Tinubu said.
