states have not received bailouts yet

The Nigerian governors Forum says states are yet to receive any bailout from the Federal Government as reported.

Chairman of the Forum and governor of Zamfara state, Abdulazeez Yari, explained that what was needed now was a mop up of all funds accruable to the Federation Account for onward sharing among the ties of government.

This, he said, will enable states with a back log of unpaid salaries to offset the debt and carry out other obligations.

The governors, who met in Abuja till the early hours of Thursday, also announced they were meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari to find lasting solution to the dwindling economy.
