PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari on Monday June 29, 2015 inaugurated the National Economic Council (NEC) of his administration and charged state governors to immediately pay off outstanding workers salaries in their states.

The state governments last week shared from the N409 billion in the Federal Account Allocation Committee after they complained of inadequate funds to pay staff salaries.

The NEC?, designed to advise the President on economic policies, is chaired by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and has as members the 36 state governors, governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and Attorney General of the Federation.
