Tinubu Meets 36 State Governors

President Bola Tinubu is currently meeting all 36 state governors under the auspices of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum at the Council Chamber of the Aso Rock Village, Abuja.

 

The meeting began after the President arrived at the chamber at 11:34am.

 

The Thursday’s gathering is Tinubu’s second meeting with the state executives since he inaugurated the National Economic Council on June 15, 2023.

 

It follows the recent hike in food prices and economic hardship and pockets of insecurity recorded nationwide.

Days earlier, governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party compared Nigeria’s economic situation to that of Venezuela, a South American country in the throes of hyperinflation, escalating starvation, disease, crime, and high mortality rates.

 

But the Presidency criticised the performance of the governors, pointing out their failure to pay salaries, pensions, and the N30,000 minimum wage.
