Nigeria Governors To Meet Over Insecurity


Some governors from the North West would soon meet with their colleagues from the Niger Republic over security challenges in their states.

The governors are Aminu Tambuwal (Sokoto), Bello Matawalle (Zamfara) and Aminu Masari (Katsina).

They would meet the governors of Dosso, Maradi and Tahoua of Niger Republic in order to stop killings by bandits in the region.

Tambuwal announced this during a one-day visit to the state of Maradi in Niger Republic, where thousands of refugees displaced by bandits from the region settled.

The governor explained that the primary objective of the proposed meeting was to deepen cooperation with the Nigerien region.

“It is unfortunate that this has happened. It wasn’t our desire, but we are working hard with our government, the Federal Republic of Nigeria, under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari, to re-establish peace in all of the affected areas, not only in Sokoto State, but in the entire country.

“On this note, let me extend the felicitations of President Buhari to the President of Niger Republic, President Bazoum, for the hospitality and courtesies extended to our citizens that have had reasons, unfortunately, to leave their comfort zones and be here at these IDP camps,” he said.
