Expanded Security Meeting Condemns Nyako’s Memo

The enlarged security meeting convened by President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday condemned Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State for a memo he sent to his co-Northern governors accusing the Federal Government of genocide against the region.

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”.

Participants at the meeting, especially state governors, were therefore warned against making inflammatory remarks that could further compound the already deteriorating security situation in the country.

The meeting also extracted an assurance from the military that everything possible would be done to rescue all the schoolgirls abducted in Chibok, Borno State.

The fate of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states that have been under emergency rule for close to a year was however not discussed at the meeting which lasted about seven hours.
