In another report, President Buhari on Wednesday, August 5, held a closed-door meeting with the governor of Katsina state, Aminu Masari, at the presidential villa.
Though details of the meeting were not disclosed, it may have to do with the security challenges in the president's home state, especially banditry that has led to the death of many people.
Speaking to State House correspondents after the meeting, Governor Masari asked leaders of the country not to allow insecurity to overwhelm them.
The governor wants his colleagues in the north-western and north-central states to ensure that the security challenges do not deteriorate further.
He said efforts are being made to address the several threats in the region, assuring that banditry and other forms of criminality will soon be a thing of the past.
