During the meeting, at the NGF Secretariat, the governors discussed plans to set up Agro-processing zones across the country, among other things.

They also agreed to do everything to ensure effective polio immunisation in their states to prevent a reemergence of the disease in the country to ensure that Nigeria is certified polio-free by the World Health Organisation.

The meeting comes hours after President Muhammadu Buhari inaugurated his cabinet and assigned portfolio to ministers at a ceremony, which was attended by governors and other top government officials.
