Tinubu to hold emergency meeting with all governors today

President Bola Tinubu is set to hold an emergency meeting with governors from all 36 states of the federation at the Aso Rock Villa this morning before departing for the African Union meeting in Ethiopia.

This gathering, only the second since he came into office last year, is coming against the backdrop of escalating economic and security challenges in the nation.

Opposition governors, from the Peoples Democratic Party, recently compared Nigeria’s economic state and that of Venezuela, citing hyperinflation, increased starvation, crime, and elevated mortality rates. In response, the Presidency criticised the PDP governors’ performance, highlighting their failure to meet salary obligations in their respective states.

Several protests have erupted around the country due to the surging cost of living, with citizens demanding solutions to the economic crisis. Reacting to the plight of citizens, Tinubu directed the immediate release of over 100,000 metric tons of assorted food items from both the strategic reserve and the Rice Millers Association of Nigeria
