The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the 13 governors are; Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto, Gov. Samuel Ortom of Benue state, Douye Diri of Bayelsa, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom, Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu.

Taking a position on the issue after receiving presentations from the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, and the Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele, the National Economic Council during its fourth 2021 meeting held on Thursday unanimously described the claim as reported in the media as “outrightly false.”

Why are we in trouble? Obaseki adduced a reason that it is because the country is enmeshed deeply in a financial quagmire. According to him, Nigeria’s oil marketers should not celebrate the increase in the price of crude oil, especially in the international market, for the expected benefits could be illusional. He noted that major oil companies in Nigeria such as Shell and Chevron are no longer investing in oil exploration.

The Governor made a final financial commitment for the adoption of the UK-based athlete after a meeting with the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, in Benin last Friday.
