Members of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum met in the Presidential Villa’s State House Banquet Hall in Aso Rock, Abuja.
The governors are debated, among other things, the situation of the country’s economy, security, and healthcare.
The health of Nigeria’s economy and security “was top-of-agenda” during the meeting, according to a statement signed on Tuesday by Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, the Director of Media and Public Affairs for the Forum.
The meeting comes after the governors gave the president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd. ), 33 recommendations to execute in order to save the country’s economy.
The economic suffering that Nigerians have experienced under the regime, according to Barkindo, is a concern for the NGF.
“A number of governors reasoned that it is past due for them to confront one another about the situation and engage in creative problem-solving. This served as the basis for holding a face-to-face meeting, which the state leaders had delegated during the Covid 19 pandemic outbreak, according to the statement.
At least 25 governors were present at the time of this report, some of whom were introduced by their deputies.
They are the governors of the following states: Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti, Babagana Zulum of Borno, Bala Mohammed of Bauchi, Godwin Obaseki of Edo, Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe, Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa, Simon Lalong of Plateau, Dapo Abiodun of Ogun, Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos, Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo
The deputy governors of Kogi, Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo of Bayelsa, Adebayo Lawal of Oyo, Moses Ekpo of Akwa Ibom, Cecilia Ezeilo of Enugu, and Adebayo Lawal of Oyo are also present.
