President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday met behind closed doors with some governors from the northern part of Nigeria at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The meeting, it was gathered, was primarily on the security situation in the three geopolitical zones that make up the region with 19 states.
Speaking to journalists at the end of the meeting, the governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle, said peace and confidence seem to be gradually returning to the region with the new security roadmap adopted by the federal and state government to secure the northern part of the country.
Governor Matawalle also assured farmers that they would be able to safely cultivate their farms this raining season as security would continue to improve.
He said the atmosphere in his state had been calm, at least in the last four months, adding that security agents were working to ensure the situation did not escalate any further.
