Northern governors to receive report on Boko Haram

24 April 2013, 10:07

Minna-  The Northern States Governors’ Forum said on Tuesday that it would receive a report on the security challenges facing the region.

The forum said that the report would be presented at a meeting scheduled for April 25 at the Niger Governor's Lodge, Abuja.

The report is expected to recommend measures to end the security challenges in the region, among other issues.

This is contained in a statement issued in Minna by Mr Saidu Idris, the Secretary to the Niger Government and Coordinating Chairman, Forum of Secretaries to the Governments of Northern States.

The statement said during the meeting, the forum would receive the report of the committee on reconciliation, healing and security.

It stated that the NSGF was committed to ending the ``unacceptable wanton carnage and security challenges threatening the region'' by collaborating with all relevant stakeholders.

The forum commended members of the committee, set up by the forum, for their sacrifice and commitment toward concretising and expanding peace-building process across the region.

The statement recalled that the committee was inaugurated in August 2012 by Gov. Babangida Aliyu of Niger, who is Chairman of the forum.

It was tasked to examine issues relating to genuine reconciliation and lasting peace in the region.
