Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State and chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum has stated the body of governors would be meeting President Mohammadu Buhari on insecurity and to make a former stance on state policing system, it has been gathered.
These details came from the recent Nigerian Governors’ Forum, NGF, meeting in Abuja from which a communique was dispatched to elombah.com.
Fayemi stated that the governors have resolved to meet with President Buhari as soon as possible to address security challenges across the country particularly in the light of the carnage in Borno State.
Over 43 farmers were reportedly killed by Insurgents in a most gruesome manner that provoked outrage.
Fayemi also explained the delayed release of Saving One Million Lives (SOML) funding, saying that the delay was due to observations made by the World Bank on the technical quality of the SMART Survey.
According to him, survey result is difficult to use for fund disbursement, and the total amount won by the States was more than the funds remaining in the funding envelope.
He proposed the option of using a prorated approach to disburse the fund and urged the Honourable Minister of Health to convene a meeting of the SOML Steering Committee to resolve the issue.
