Governors End Meeting With Buhari

Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) and Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi has revealed details of the discussion governors had with President Muhammadu Buhari.

Briefing newsmen on Friday, Fayemi said the governors were yet to take a position on the proposal for the establishment of state and local government police.

Naija News recalls President Buhari on Monday received the report on the reforms of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) which recommended the creation of State and Local Government Police.

However, while addressing State House correspondents after the meeting governors and security chiefs held with Buhari at the Aso Rock Villa on Friday, Fayemi disclosed some governors had expressed reservation on their ability to finance state policing.

According to him, the governors noted their challenges in paying existing workers salaries particularly in the light of the newly approved minimum wage.

Fayemi, who was flanked by governors of Ebonyi, Kebbi, Delta, Ondo, Plateau and Borno states, however mentioned that they discussed issues of security in their respective states in the meeting with the President.

He added that a comprehensive National Economic Council (NEC) meeting will be held to address the issue of security in the country as a whole.
