Governors of the 36 states of the Federation under the aegis of Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) have agreed to reduce the salaries of political office holders as a necessary measure to cut down on the huge overhead costs of state governments.

This was announced by the Forum's Chairman, Abdulaziz Yari after a meeting held at the Banquet Hall of Presidential Villa on Thursday, Nov. 19.

Yari said that the Governors would meet with President Muhammadu Buhari to find a solution to the economic crisis in the country.

The Governors gave assurance of their commitment to ensuring a lasting remedy is worked out.

As earlier reported, the forum also commended the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) for imposing a N1.04 trillion on telecommunication giant MTN for flouting the Commission's directives.
