Hardship: What I discussed with governors about food prices, importation, Tinubu opens up

President Bola Tinubu-led federal government recently accused Nigerian governors of fueling the hunger in the country by not paying salaries and pensions despite the increased federal allocations they get.

The presidency made the claim following the alarm by governors elected under the umbrella of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that the federal government’s economic policy has caused hunger and pain in the country.

However, Cross River is being governed by the All Progressives Congress (APC), the president’s party under Governor Bassey Otu.

On Thursday, President Tinubu met with the governors at the presidential villa before departing for the African Union meeting in Addis Ababa.

During the meeting, the president and the governors agreed on state police to fight insecurity. Tinubu also urged the governors to ensure that salaries are promptly paid to reduce hunger in the country.
