The forum announced that the donation was made to the Kaduna State Government, which was disclosed in a statement by the NGF on Friday evening.
Fayemi disclosed that the NGF delegation visited Kaduna State to commiserate with the government and people on the train attack which claimed lives and has left several others in captivity.
”Regrettably, the criminals were audacious enough to also take away some hostages which raised the state of insecurity, which has virtually thrown Kaduna in the mix,” Fayemi said.
He regretted that, ”everything is currently unnecessarily revolving around 2023,” urging that more should be done towards securing the country.
”Whatever it is, governors would continue to work with President Muhammadu Buhari to bring sanity back to the country,” he said.
