President Muhammadu Buhari met with governors of the 36 states of the federation on Friday at the State house, Abuja.
The content of the meeting was made known to newsmen by Governor of Zamfara state, Abdulaziz Yari, soon after the meeting. The governor said Buhari asked governors to find a way to make the economy move forward, as it isn’t in a very good shape at the moment.
He said the president asked them to do what they can, to ensure that the Nigerian economy is repositioned as things will be harder than before.
“Mr President, as usual, responded by telling us that the economy is in a bad shape and we have to come together and think and rethink on way forward.
“So, Mr President talked to us in the manner that we have a task ahead of us. So, we should tighten our belts and see how we can put Nigerian economy in the right direction and how we can address the nation’s infrastructural decay.
“So, all of us as leaders, especially those that are coming to the National Assembly and those coming back as governors and the president who will be re-elected by God grace, we should not think that things are going to be easy.
“They are going to be harder than before, this was the message of Mr President.’’
