The state governors in Nigeria will attend the first NGF emergency virtual teleconference over the threat by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to embark on an industrial action.
The ominous strike by NLC is to demand that the Federal Government rescinds its decision on the recent hike in the prices of petroleum products and electricity.
The Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) revealed the plan in a statement issued by its Head of Media and Public Affairs, Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, on Wednesday.
He said that the emergency meeting scheduled for 6pm on Thursday would seek ways of settling the rift and find a mutual agreement.
According to him, all governors were expected to attend the first NGF emergency virtual teleconference to consider the matter which he described as of urgent national importance.
Bello-Barkindo said that the matter needs to be quickly resolved in order not to worsen the already bad situation of Nigerians as caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
