The Northern Governors Forum (NGF) has asked for special fund from the Federal Government to combat the spread of COVID-19 in the region.
The chairman of the forum and governor of Plateau, Simon Lalong made the call on Monday in Jos, after members’ meeting via teleconferencing.
The Northern Governors discussed COVID-19 with special attention to its effects on the region.
President Buhari had approved N10billion for Lagos.
Now every state wants the largesse.
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers had raised the issue first.
He accused the APC central government of discrimination.
Lagos is an APC state, just like Buhari’s central government is APC controlled.
