- The Nigeria Governors Forum meets behind closed door with the IGP Adamu and NSA Monguno
- The meeting is believed to be associated with the forthcoming presidential and governorship elections in the country
- The meeting holds at the NGF headquarters in Abuja
The newly appointed Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, and the National Security Adviser (NSA), Babagana Monguno, are currently meeting with the Nigeria Governors Forum at the national secretariat of the NGF in Abuja.
At the time of this report, the details of the meeting were still sketchy.
However, Daily Sun reported that it was Monguno who called for the meeting to update the governors on the security situation in the country.
The meeting is holding few weeks to the commencement of the general elections in the country.
It is speculated that the meeting could be to get the governors to be on the same level with the security architecture of the country ahead of the elections.
This may be because the government had consistently maintained that it is poised to conduct an election devoid of tension and security issues.
The report suggests that a communiqué is expected to be released at the end of the meeting.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Olasupo Ayokunle, the president of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), recently said the attitude of Nigerian politicians was critical to successful and peaceful conduct of the 2019 general elections.
Ayokunle stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on the sideline of a one-day convention organised by the First Baptist Church, Sabon Gari, Zaria, Kaduna state.
It was gathered that Ayokunle said if the politicians, especially the leaders, want peace to prevail, it would prevail.
He noted that the masses do not take up arms against each other without the politicians using them for their selfish interest.
He said: “Therefore, we are appealing to them to put the interest of the nation above their personal interest, so that we can continue to live in peace."
It was also reported that with some days to the general election, President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, January 28, urged the security agencies and the traditional rulers to work towards ensuring a violence free and credible election.
Speaking at the 10th general assembly of the National Council of Traditional Rulers in Nigeria (NCTRN) in Abuja, the president blew hot, adding that the government will not tolerate any attempt to cause public disturbance and violence in the election through reckless speeches.
The president, who noted that traditional rulers have a great impact in the coming election, urged the monarchs to use their position to ensure the presence of peace and security in the country during the 2019 general election.
