The Council of Governors held a consultative meeting with Cabinet Secretaries in Nairobi to discuss the Big 4 agenda and the National Government projects in the counties. The meeting which was chaired by Interior CS Fred Matiang'i brought together Excellency Governors led by the Chairman of the Council, H.E Wycliffe Oparanya.

While addressing the press after the meeting, Council of Governors chairman expressed the need to coordinate all projects in the Counties to ensure delivery in all projects. "We have agreed that we need to engage each other more regularly to realize meaningful development.” said H.E Wycliffe Oparanya. Poor coordination has so far stalled close to 200 projects in counties thus it's very important that both the County and National Governments work together to ensure their completion. “Projects have stalled and the progress has been affected by matters yet to be ironed out between National and County Governments,” said CS Matiang’i.
The Big 4 agenda as endorsed by the president of Kenya and well supported by the Council of Governors is a remarkable concept to ensure sustainable development in four key sectors in Kenya. It will ensure that Kenyans get employment which will in turn improve the dignity of the people. The National Government supported by the 47 County Governments has decdicated time, energy and resources towards the achievement of the five year blueprint.  Constant reporting is a key ingredient to the success of any project. The collaboration between the National and County Governments will see all projects come to completion. To enhance this reporting and coordination structure, the National and County Governments will henceforth meet on a monthly basis to discuss the status of the projects, issues arising and iron out any challenges.
One of the key resolutions from the meeting was that both the National and County Governments will hold monthly consultative meetings as that held today.
