Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) today called for devolution of power and comprehensive restructuring of the country. According to a communique jointly signed by members of the PDP Governor’s Forum, the call became pertinent seeing that Nigerians have now been sharply divided along lines of ethnic and religious biases.
