The Federal Government has been urged to do everything legally possible to pull the country out of the current economic recession.
The call was made Friday by the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) at the end of its extra-ordinary meeting held at the Old Banquet Hall of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Addressing State House correspondents on some of the resolutions reached at the end of the meeting, Chairman of the NGF and Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, stated: “The governors resolved with the commitment to encourage the Federal Government to continue along the line to bring the country out of recession”.
He disclosed that the forum equally resolved that the issue of the Boko Haram insurgency be treated as a matter of national emergency.
Yari said the Forum also agreed to activate the states’ task force on polio as well as the primary healthcare to be led by the deputy governors.
Mr. Yari added that members of the forum also committed to pay their counterpart funds towards polio eradication just as they resolved to engage with the Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, so that urgent attention would be given to Lassa Fever.
