Jonathan meets gov­er­nors over in­se­cu­rity

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Isi­aka Wak­ili

Pres­i­dent Good­luck Jonathan is to hold a meet­ing to­day with state gov­er­nors over the se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion in the coun­try.

The meet­ing is to be held at the State House in Abuja.

It is com­ing in the wake of the bomb blast at Nyanya, Abuja, in which at least 75 people were killed, as well as the ab­duc­tion of more than 200 school­girls in Chi­bok, Borno State, last week.

The meet­ing was to have held last week, but there was con­tro­versy over the ab­sence of gov­er­nors of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC).

APC said its gov­er­nors were given the im­pres­sion that the meet­ing was post­poned. But the rul­ing People’s Demo­cratic Party (PDP) claimed that the op­po­si­tion gov­er­nors shunned the meet­ing.
