The state governors in attendance are Zamfara State Abdulaziz Yari, Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, Kwara State Abdulfatah Ahmed, Akwa Ibom Udom Emmanuel, Bauchi State Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar, Kebbi State Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, Ebonyi State Deputy Governor Eric Kelechi Igwe, Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari and the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.

The chairman of the Governors’ Forum, Abdul’aziz Yari who led the delegation asked the President to release what is left of the London Paris exit payment to enable states plan appropriately for the 2018 fiscal year.

Governor Yari told journalists that the president’s decision to bail out states through the bailout funds and debt restructuring is the reason Nigeria has come out of recession.

He said the unanimous decision to see the President came after its National Economic Council Meeting held last month.

The governors are hoping to find common ground on the range of issues at their next meeting with the President.
