Govs to meet Buhari on new revenue formular presentation to NASS

The 36 states governors are to meet President Muhammadu Buhari to discuss with him on the need to present new revenue formular to the 9th National Assembly for passage into law before the end of his administration.

Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, disclosed this while speaking with newsmen after the forum’s meeting on Wednesday in Abuja.

Tambuwal said that the governors discussed issues that bordered on national, sub-national, democracy and good governance, including the need for timely release of the collected stamp duties warehoused in the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) for disbursement.

Fielding questions on details of the new draft revenue formular and if the forum was satisfied with it, Tambuwal said the details of the new formular would be revealed when presented.

On his assessment of the NGF, Tambuwal said that the forum had helped the governors in maintaining cohesion, unity, non partisanship, making sure that all that they did was about Nigeria first and their various states.
