On Wednesday, the current President, Bola Tinubu, is presently engaged in a gathering with members of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum. This assembly consists of the 36 State Governors and the meeting is taking place at the Council Chamber of the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
While Tinubu met with governors from his own party last Friday, this meeting on Wednesday marks his first encounter with all State Governors, irrespective of their party affiliations.
The meeting commenced at 12:36 pm and witnessed the presence of all governors except those representing Kaduna, Katsina, Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Ekiti, Sokoto, Ondo, Borno, Yobe, Gombe, and Katsina states. However, the governors of Edo and Niger states are being represented by their deputies.
In addition to the State Governors, Vice President Kashim Shettima is also participating in the meeting.
