36 State Governors To Meet President Buhari Over Insecurity In Nigeria

Following the killing of dozens of rice farmers in Borno State by Boko Haram terrorists, the 36 state governors in Nigeria have resolved to meet President Muhammadu Buhari as soon as possible.


The governors were reported to have taken the decision at the 22nd meeting of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) on Wednesday, December 2, 2020.

At the meeting, the governors were briefed by the delegation they sent to commiserate with Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State on December 1, 2020, after the gruesome killing of the farmers, The Nation reports.

In a communique issued in Abuja on Friday, December 4, 2020, the governors agreed to support the necessary reforms that will result in a police force that works for all.

They said, “As an 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.”
