Paris loan refund: Governors refutes report of fraud

Nigeria Governors Forum has asked the National Assembly to harmonize its position on the review of the 1999 constitution.

The forum chairman, Abdulaziz Yari, made the call while addressing State House correspondents, after the meeting of the governors on Wednesday night, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The constitution, which is undergoing review, according to him, includes national issues such as power devolution and other issues which are part of the on-going agitations for restructuring.

He explained that the meeting was convened due to the raging debate on the proposed restructuring of the country.

The governors were briefed on the constitutional review by the Senate Deputy President, Ike Ekweremadu, while the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara is also expected to brief them next week.
