“You will recall that in many of the states some of the cases of insecurity are very similar.

“So, within us here we have a lot of them that are similar – we put them together to see how we can address those issues and we felt that we must also meet Mr. President about it.’’

The governor assured Nigerians that the problem would be addressed as the President promised to find a lasting solution to the security challenges across the country.
