Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi has met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja to discuss national issues and the nation’s state of security.
The Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr Onogwu Muhammed, disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday, in Abuja.
According to Muhammed, Bello and President Buhari have detailed discussions on politics and security.
“The governor, in his usual concern for matters relating to governance and security, was at the villa for progressive talks with the President.
“They shared ideas and also reached certain conclusions that I won’t want to disclose for confidentiality purposes,” Muhammed stated.
Bello lauded the President’s efforts in curbing insecurity in the Northwest, adding that the people of the zone would soon start reaping the dividends of those efforts.
