Ribadu, Meet With NGF To Discuss  Distribution Of Fuel Subsidy Palliatives, Insecurity

The National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, met with the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) on Thursday in Abuja to discuss the nation’s escalating insecurity issues.
How to ensure the smooth distribution of palliatives to Nigerians to lessen the impact of the recently passed electricity act and the removal of the subsidy on Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) is one of the things to discuss on the meeting’s agenda.
Governor of Kwara State AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq presided over the meeting, according to a statement posted on X (Twitter) by Bologi Ibrahim, the governor of Niger State’s Chief Press Secretary.
“Governor Mohammed Bago of Niger state was among his counterparts across the country in a meeting of the NGF in Abuja,” Ibrahim wrote on the microblogging platform.
“The meeting which was held behind closed doors was chaired by the NGF chairman who doubles as Kwara state Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.
“The national security adviser, Nuhu Ribadu, was also at the meeting, which centred on the nation’s security, fuel subsidy palliatives interventions, a review of the National Executive Council agenda, and a brief on the new electricity act,” he added.
In another post, Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, gave a hint of what was discussed at the NGF meeting today.
“In our efforts towards guaranteeing the safety of our people, the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) took further measures by interacting with the National Security Adviser, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, during our emergency meeting yesterday.
“Our discussions addressed other sundry matters that complement the safety of our States and the nation at large. This is with a view to dousing the concerns of our people as regards the current security and economic situation in the country.
“The responsibility upon us is enormous and critical. We will continue to engage critical stakeholders while encouraging our people to support our security agencies in their constitutional assignment,” Uzodimma noted on his Twitter page.
