The 36 state governors have concluded plans to parley with President Muhammadu Buhari and the nation’s service Chiefs over the rising insecurity in country.
This is even as the 36 state governors under the auspices of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) have expressed solidarity with Borno State governor , Babagana Zulum and the people of Borno State, following the last Wednesday’s attack by gunmen suspected to be members of the Boko Haram terrorists.
According to the NGF chairman and Ekiti State governor, Kayode Fayemi ,this is one unwarranted attack too many.
According to him, it epitomises our collective vulnerability and the fragility of the country’s security architecture.
He said, “Although you emerged from this incident unscathed, we note with regret the injuries sustained by two members of the Civilian Joint Task Force and a police officer attached to your convoy and do accordingly pray for their quick recovery”.
“Mr. governor, forum members are resolutely behind you in your efforts to rid Borno State of these dastardly and wicked agents of evil”.
“We are appalled by the worsening security situation in the country generally, despite all the efforts of government to end it.
