The statement said the reinvigoration of U.S attention on the North, economic investment opportunities in the region, security and challenges of private investments in the North were the highlights of the governors’ meeting with United States officials.
“The 19 Northern Governors will also meet with members to the ongoing National Conference from the North to fine tune the region’s position at the talk shop. The meeting will hold at 8pm at the Kano State Governor’s Lodge in Abuja on the same day,” the statement added.
