The NGF Director-General Asishana Bayo Okauru, who disclosed this on Tuesday, said the meeting slated for Friday, April 8, is aimed at finding solutions to issues of national importance.
Okauru said the meeting would be held at Frazier Suites in the Central Business District (CBD) in the federal capital territory (FCT) around 4 pm and chaired by NGF Chairman, Governor Kayode Fayemi.
She said Governor Fayemi asked his colleagues “to promptly facilitate and enable the Speakers in their various states to attend the meeting”.
“It is expected that executive-legislature harmony will occupy the minds of the 72 people in attendance, to achieve rapid problem solving, just as crucial matters like the security of life and property in Nigeria as a whole, will feature.
“We seek Your Excellencies’ indulgence to kindly facilitate the participation of the Hon. Speaker of your State House of Assembly at this important emergency meeting,” the director-general said.
