Buhari, Security Chiefs in closed door meeting

President Muhammadu Buhari and the Service Chiefs and other heads of security agencies are currently meeting behind closed-doors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Sources hinted that the upcoming supplementary elections in some states as well as the killings in Kaduna, is likely to be discussed at the meeting.

The meeting comes a day after a United States observer group released a damning election assessment report of the 2019 election, where it clearly stated that most of the issues that troubled the 2019 general election were deliberately contrived to assist the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to retain power at the centre.

The independent and electoral commission (INEC) had fixed March 23 for supplementary elections after declaring the governorship elections in six states as inconclusive.

The states are Bauchi, Benue, Kano, Sokoto, Adamawa and Plateau.

In attendance are the Chief of Defence Staff, General Gabriel Olonisakin, Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai; Chief of Naval Staff, Rear Admiral Ibok Ekwe Ibas and Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Abubakar Sadique.

Others are, the National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno; Minister of Defence, Mansur Dan- Ali, Minister of Interior, General Abdulrahaman Dambazau ,Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ahmed Abubakar, acting Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu and the  Director General of Department for State Service (DSS), Yusuf Magaji Bichi.

The Minister of Interior, Lt. Gen. Abdulrahman Dangazzau and the Minister of Defence, Brigadier Gen. Mansur Dan-Ali are also part of the meeting.

On the 5th March, this year, a similar meeting was held before the governorship and state assembly elections.
