Governors Forum to meet Buhari over Borno killings

The 36 state governors have agreed to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari to proffer viable solutions to the insecurity challenges plaguing the country, in light of the gruesome murder of farmers in Borno.

The governors took the decision at the 22nd meeting of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) held on Wednesday.

They had been briefed by the delegation they sent to commiserate with Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State on December 1, 2020, over the killing of more than 40 rice farmers in Garin Kwashebe in Jere Local Government Area of the state.

The NGF, in a communiqué issued in Abuja on Friday, also elected to support the necessary reforms that will result in a police force that works for all.

“As an immediate to medium-term measure, members agreed to pay close attention to the conduct of police officers across the country in order to get them and other internal security operatives fully back to work as they have not been functioning to full capacity since the EndSARS protests with the attendant security exposure to the safety of lives and properties of the ordinary citizens,” they said.
