Jonathan, Governors’ Crucial Security Meeting Postponed

The security meeting between President Goodluck Jonathan and governors of the 36 states of Nigeria, initially scheduled to hold on Wednesday, has been postponed.

A source in the presidency said that the meeting, scheduled to review the security situation in Nigeria and proffer possible solutions, has been rescheduled for Thursday.

The crucial security meeting is coming days after the bomb blast at Nyanya Motor Park, in Abuja.

Seventy-five persons were killed while over 120 were injured in the attack by the Islamic sect, Boko Haram.

The president and the governors will also look at the ongoing national security measures and operations with a view to determining the best way forward.

Last Thursday, the president held a similar meeting with governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and governors of other party except those of the All Progressive Congress (APC).

Governors of the APC had accused the presidency of side-lining the party in a meeting it said should have been broad based since the issue of security was of national interest.

One of the PDP governors at the meeting, Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State, toldreporters after the meeting that the invitation was not extended to the APC governors.

Governor Akpabio said that the PDP governors requested to meet with the president before a broad based meeting involving all governors would be held on April 23.
