Northern Governors Moves To Polarize Nigeria Governors Forum
Governors from Nigeria’s Northern states who are opposed to the establishment of state police may have started maneuvers to whittle down the efficiency of the Nigerian Governors Forum. The Nigerian Governors Forum, which has all 36 state governors as members, is pushing for a constitutional amendment to allow for state police.
SaharaReporters learnt that a majority of Northern governors kept away from a meeting of the Nigerian Governors Forum that was scheduled Wednesday night in Abuja. They also showed up at the Presidential Villa on Thursday morning to attend the National Economic Council meeting that was chaired by Vice President Namadi Sambo.
