Nigerian Governors Hold Meeting On Developmental Issues

Governors from the 36 states of the federation under the aegis of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum have met on how to find lasting solutions to some developmental issues that are calling for attention in their domain.

The meeting, which was held at the old banquet hall in the Presidential Villa on Tuesday, was said to have been initiated by President Muhammadu Buhari to keep the governors abreast of the goings on in the government departments and agencies, including the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

Speaking to State House correspondents after the meeting, Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, said that the briefings were designed to encourage synergy.

“The Group Managing Director of NNPC, Andrew Yakubu, has given us a very interesting presentation of the reforms that are going on in the NNPC.

” We all have renewed confidence that we would have a national corporation that is run like a business outfit with good corporate governance and transparency that people can see through its operations.

“Having listened to all the presentations, we are very excited that the President is providing the right leadership and the GMD is at home with the issues and he’s dealing with all the impurities and the result is already manifesting,” Oshiomhole said .
