It was learnt that northern governors at the meeting expressed their unhappiness with Nyako’s action. They argued that security matters should not be trivialised the way Nyako did.

of Defence , Gen. Aliyu Gusau who was flanked by the governors of Niger, Abia, Borno and Ekiti states said the meeting enjoined all holders
of Public offices to be wary of statements that are capable of exercebating the already precarious security situation in the country.
Governor Babangida Aliyu who spoke on some of the decisions reached at the meeting said “I am sure many of you will be curious about the
memo written by one of us. We looked at it all. Infact he was allowed to
read the memo to all of us and we discussed and concluded that for all
of us, we need to be very careful with the kind of statement we make”.
