Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Isi­aka Wak­ili

Pres­i­dent Good­luck Jonathan will to­day meet with the 36 state gov­er­nors and the ser­vice chiefs over the wors­en­ing se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion in the coun­try.

The en­larged se­cu­rity meet­ing ear­lier sched­uled to hold yes­ter­day was shifted to to­day for undis­closed rea­sons. While the meet­ing failed to hold yes­ter­day, our cor­re­spon­dent learnt that it had been in­cluded in the Pres­i­dency’s pro­gramme of ac­tiv­i­ties for to­day.

Ac­cord­ing to the pro­gramme, the meet­ing will hold 12pm at the Pres­i­den­tial Villa to­day.

The meet­ing is ex­pected to be a fol­low-up to an ear­lier one Jonathan held with the gov­er­nors of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party gov­er­nors (PDP) last Thurs­day.

All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) gov­er­nors were ab­sent at that meet­ing be­cause their party lead­er­ship told them that an of­fi­cial of the Pres­i­dency in­formed one of them on its post­pone­ment.

The APC had post­poned to Satur­day, its state con­gresses ear­lier sched­uled for yes­ter­day in or­der to al­low its gov­er­nors to at­tend the se­cu­rity meet­ing with the pres­i­dent.
