President Bolaa Ahmed Tinubu is currently meeting with some governors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting which is coming after the Supreme Court judgement affirmed the constitutional autonomy of local government areas in the country, started immediately after the President met with Labour leaders.

Vice-President Kashim Shettima is also attending the meeting holding at the president’s offive.

Among governors at the meeting were the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF), AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara); Charles Soludo of Anambra; and Usman Ododo of Kogi.

Even though Daily Trust could not immediately ascertain the agenda of the meeting, there are indications that it might not be unconnected with the Supreme Court judgement on Local Government autonomy.

The Supreme Court had ruled that the Federal Government should pay monies due to the Local Governments from the Federation account directly to the third tier of Government.
