Governors Meet In Abuja Over Insecurity, Others


State governors in Nigeria met behind closed doors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Wednesday night.

They met under the auspices of the Nigeria Governors Forum.

The meeting was presided over by the forum’s chairman and governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi.

The meeting was still ongoing as of the time of filing this report.

The major agenda for the meeting by the state governors was to deliberate on the security challenges facing the country among other national issues.

They were also expected to discuss Executive 10 which has to do with financial autonomy for state legislature and judiciary.

Also, the governors are expected to intervene in the ongoing strike by members of the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria.

Recall that the union had embarked on a nationwide strike on April 6 to protest the non-implementation of the financial autonomy of the nation’s judiciary.

The union directed all its members across the federation to shut down all courts after the expiration of the 21-day ultimatum earlier given over the failure of the government to implement the financial autonomy of the judiciary.
