President Muhammadu Buhari today attended an expanded National Economic Council (NEC) meeting, with the 36 State Governors in attendance.
The meeting is usually presided over by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.
Before taking his seat in the Council Chamber, Buhari took his time to shake hands with all the Governore present.
Osinbajo had explained that the NEC was abridged in order to receive the President.
He then called on the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara State, to speak on behalf of the Governors.
Reporters and journalists were asked to leave the hall when Yari began his speech, but he could be heard thanking Buhari for his support to the Governors.
