The President, Muhammadu Buhari, has met with some representatives of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum and security chiefs inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The meeting is in continuation of efforts aimed at tackling the deteriorating security situation in parts of the country.
During the meeting, President Muhammadu Buhari urged the Nigerian Army to do better in the war against insurgency in the North-East.
According to the President, his administration ran on three key principles: security, the economy, and fighting corruption.
He said security is the ultimate job of government and that based on the level of insecurity his government inherited, the people of the North-East will appreciate what his government has done so far.
President Buhari is joined at the Council Chamber venue of the meeting by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha; and National Security Adviser, Major General Babagana Monguno retired.
Others are service chiefs and heads of other security agencies.
State governors who are attending the meeting virtually include Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello; Douye Diri of Bayelsa; Babagana Zulum of Borno; David Umahi of Ebonyi; and Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos.
Presient Buhari had on Monday met with state governors from the North-East on the same issue.
