President Muhammadu Buhari and the governors of the 36 states of the federation just ended a crucial security meeting at the State House in Abuja.

Although none of the governors would agree to speak to State House Correspondents, it was gathered that the meeting was strictly on security issues.

This indication was further supported by the fact that top security figures in the administration, including the Minister of Defense, Major General Bashir Magashi (Rtd), and the National Security Adviser (NSA), Major General Babagana Monguno (Rtd), were part of the meeting.

It would be recalled that the governors at their last meeting in Abuja last week, following the recent killings of over 43 rice farmers in Borno State, resolved to meet Buhari on the need to address security challenges across the country particularly in the light of the carnage in Borno.

Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) and Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, had in a communique made available to press, said they had also resolve to support the necessary reforms that will result in a police force that works for all.

The communique stated: “As immediate to medium-term measure, members agreed to pay close attention to the conduct of police officers across the country in order to get them and other internal security operatives fully back to work as they have not been functioning to full capacity since the #EndSARS protests with the attendant security exposure to the safety of lives and properties of the ordinary citizens.”
