Governors meet over Buhari’s Executive Order on financial autonomy for State legislatures, Judiciary

Governors of the 36 States of the federation will meet on Wednesday over the Executive Order signed by President Muhammadu Buhari last week which grants financial autonomy to State judiciary and legislatures.

Head, Media and Public Affairs of Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday also said that the Governors will deliberate on restructuring of loans owned by State governments, the deductions from the Federation Account and Allocation Committee (FAAC), the ownership of the Nigeria liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) and the controversial Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) Bill in the House of Representatives.

The statement added that the Governors would receive update on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in the country from the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 as well as review a letter from the National Coordinator of the PTF on the COVID-19 draft regulations.

“There will also be a general update on the efforts of the Coalition Against COVID-19, CACOVID,” the statement added.

The meeting will begin by 2pm on Wednesday through teleconferencing.
