Office of the Vice President agreed with the governors to engage the ASUU crises and other pressing issues further to bring urgent resolution for the benefit of the Nigerian people.

The Vice-President said, “We all need to work together on these critical issues. We need to think through things, and we need to do it fast.”

While welcoming the Governors, Prof. Osinbajo expressed his appreciation for the visit and the good wishes.
Speaking on his treatment and recovery, the VP  commended the expertise of Nigerian doctors and the availability of cutting-edge medical facilities existing in the country.

Others include Muhammad Badaru Abubakar of Jigawa State; Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara; Abubakar Sani Bello of Niger State; Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State; Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa, and the deputy governor of Ebonyi State, Kelechi Igwe.
