The Nigeria Governors Forum will be holding their 23rd virtual meeting to address the rising cases of COVID-19 infections and work out an appropriate response.
The meeting which is scheduled to hold virtually on Wednesday is expected to provide a platform for the governors to deliberate and agree on practical steps to contain further spread of the disease.
This was contained in a press statement signed by the Head, Media and Public Affairs of the NGF, Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, in Abuja, on Monday.
According to the statement, Governor Okowa is expected to give a panoramic view of the second wave of the pandemic while the Nigeria Governors Forum Chairman who is also the Governor of Ekiti State, Dr John Kayode Fayemi, will brief the Forum on his meeting with the President on all pending matters that have remained inconclusive.
The Director-General of the Nigeria Governors Forum Mr Asishana B Okauru, says governors will also be updated on the States’ Fiscal Transparency, Accountability and Sustainability program for the preceding year, 2020.
