THE Nineteen state governors under the aegis, Northern States Governors Forum, NSGF have concluded arrangements to sue President Goodluck Jonathan over the failure of the Federal Government to allocate funds with which to address the security challenge in the north.

Rising from a meeting in Abuja, the governors according to a source have also agreed to settle for compromise with their colleagues from the south on the issue of On/off shore crisis

A source at the meeting told Vanguard that the northern governors chose the option of dragging the federal government to court because they are not happy that rather than manage the security challenge in the entire northern zone, the federal government was only concentrating on the nation’s capital city, Abuja.

The governors complained that they have been spending their extra budgetary allocation to address the problem of insecurity which was really affecting governance as they were unable to deliver dividends of democracy to their people.
