Vice President, Sen Kashim Shettima is presiding over the 141st meeting of the National Economic Council (NEC) at the State House in Abuja.

The NEC, a statutory body responsible for advising the president on economic matters, consists of the vice president, governors from all 36 states of the federation, the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), the minister of finance, and other stakeholders.

Several state governors and their deputies are present at the ongoing meeting, which is being held in person, a departure from the previous three virtual meetings.

It could be recalled that during the 140th meeting on March 21, the council received reports from 16 state governors who expressed their support for the establishment of state police. They also recommended constitutional changes to facilitate a smooth implementation.

The spokesperson for the vice president, Stanley Nkwocha, stated that the NEC is still awaiting reports from 20 other states, but expressed confidence that they would also lend their support.
