BREAKING: Buhari in a closed door meeting with service chiefs days to guber elections

President Muhammadu Buhari is in a closed-door meeting with Service Chiefs and other heads of security agencies at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The agenda of the meeting which started at about 11am is not made public.

Bashir Ahmad, Buhari’s aide made this known in a post on Twitter, “President @MBuhari receives security briefing from Defence Minister, service chiefs and other heads of the security agencies at the State House, Abuja. Zamfara issues at the top of the agenda. #SecuringNigeria”

Speculations however are that discussions during the meeting may centre on the current security situation in the country and how to ensure adequate security during this Saturday’s governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections across the federation.

Service Chiefs; Chief of Defence Staff, General Gabriel Olonishakin; Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Yusuf Buratai; Chief of Naval Staff, Ibok-Ete IIbas and Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadiq Abubakar, were all in attendance.

Others in attendance are the National Security Adviser (NSA), Major Gen. Babagana Monguno; Director of National Intelligence Agency (NIA); the Director General, Department of Security Service (DSS) and Acting Inspector General of Police, (IGP) Mohammed Adamu.

The Minister of Interior, Lt. Gen. Abdulrahman Dangazzau and the Minister of Defence, Brigadier Gen. Mansur Dan-Ali were also in attendance.
