Amid outcry by a cross section of Nigerians, President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday in Abuja, met with the 36 State Governors, on the issue of security.
The President, who said the federal government is investing in military weapons, charged the Governors to work more with traditional rulers and community members to improve local intelligence gathering that will aid the work of security agencies.
“We are investing heavily in weapons and equipment for our military. They have already received armoured cars and other equipment, and aircraft, and more will come in.
“We will continue to give them all the support they need to fight criminals. We must and will secure Nigeria.
“Intelligence-gathering is also very critical to ensuring lasting security in Nigeria. In this regard, everyone has a role to play, in addition to the security agencies: Governors, traditional rulers, community leaders, citizens. We must all work to boost intelligence-gathering”, President Buhari said.
