We almost relocated to Abuja — Chair, Nigerian Gov. Forum

President Muhammadu Buhari, Friday, went into closed-door meeting with 35 states governors in Nigeria — with Ekiti State governor being the only absentee.

President Buhari went into closed-door meeting with the Governors shortly after meeting with the leadership of the APC and PDP parties at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara State conveyed the good wishes of all the state governors to the president, adding they were all praying for his good health.

Yari, who doubles as chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum also asserted that aside the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari to help them manage their states, key expenditures like salaries and capital projects would have been impossible to furnish.
The eloquent governor blamed this fate on the failure of the past administration, the Peoples Democratic Party – he said most incoming state governors inherited huge debts from unpaid salaries and arrears which could only be offset with the bailout funds and Paris Club refund disbursed by President Buhari.
