Abuja - Nigerian governors have passed a vote of confidence on the minister of Budget and National Planning, Udoma Udo Udoma and her finance counterpart, Kemi Adeosun, Vanguard reports.
The governors said the duo were not responsible for the current recession faced by the country.
The governors’ position downplays the National Assembly’s call for the removal of the two ministers, whom they accused of not knowing what to do in order to bail the nation out of the economic straits.
The governors, who passed their implicit confidence on the two ministers, absolved them of any blame in the declining economy during the meeting of the National Economic Council, NEC, presided over by Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, at the State House.
Senate President, Bukola Saraki has said the upper legislative house will recommend immediate removal from office ministers and other presidential aides who fail to measure up in the Federal Government’s efforts to exit the country from economic recession according to News24.
