Nigeria's Excess Crude Account, Governors VS Federal Government
The governors of 36 states, under the umbrella of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), agreed at its meeting on Wednesday that it was better to go to court to enforce the Federal Government’s adherence to the constitution.
The chairman of the forum and governor of Rivers State, Mr Rotimi Amaechi, told newsmen at the end of the meeting that “Forum unanimously decided to head back to court to enforce the Federal Government’s adherence to the constitution.”
He added that it “supports the upcoming good governance tours as conceptualised by the National Economic Council (NEC) and plans to use the opportunity to showcase achievements of the states in various areas of service delivery.
Amaechi reiterated that the forum would embark on various strategies to deepen advocacy and administration of polio vaccines with a view to eradicating polio in the country.
The NEC has however approved the extension of the new performance measurement and results delivery system recently initiated by the Federal Government to state and local governments.
