The 36 governors of the federation will be convening their 30th teleconference meeting on Wednesday, May 19, to address matters arising from a variety of challenges such as the ongoing conversation over the contentious Executive Order 10, the third wave of COVID-19, an update of the States Fiscal Transparency, Accountability, (SFTAS) report, among other things.

According to a statement by the head of public affairs of the Nigerian Governors Forum ( NGF), Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, the meeting, which will be the seventh this year by the governors, will as usual, be virtual.

He said the meeting will cover lessons for states and actions for governors on sustainability as well as the adoption of SAAS E-procurement.

“There will also be another presentation by the Director-General, Bureau for Public Enterprises, Mr. Alexander Ayoola Okoh on Unlocking Liquidity through Sale/Optimization of State-owned Redundant/Sub-Optimal Assets.

“Last but by no means the least, the Director-General of the NGF, Mr Asishana B Okauru, will give feedback on the series of Executive Order 10 meetings with the Minister of Labour and Employment: Dr Chris Ngige about the ongoing industrial action by the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria and the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria,” he stated.
