President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the suspension of the publication of the recently issued Executive Order 10 in the Federal Government’s Official Gazette.
It was gathered that the President agreed to a postponement of the publication, until after adequate consultations among stakeholders, when he met with a team from the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), led by its Chairman, Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State.
Also, members of the NGF confirmed the postponement at their 10th teleconference on COVID -19 held on Wednesday.
The Governors resolved, at the meeting, to congratulate the President “for the decision to postpone the formal publication of the Executive Order #10 of 2020 in the Official Gazette to enable further consultations among all stakeholders.”
The publication would have signalled the commencement of the application of the Order by affected parties.
