PBAT Meets Northern Governors Sharing Boundaries With Niger

share close

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu Sunday evening in Abuja met with governors of states that share a boundary with the Niger Republic at the State House in  Abuja.

The governors in attendance were, Ahmed Aliyu Sokoto, Umar Namadi Jigawa, Mai Malam Buni Yobe, Idris Nasir Kebbi, and Dr Dikko Radda Katsina.

The meeting which took place at the State House, was part of consultations by the President on the situation in Niger.

Northern Elites have kicked against the planned onslaught against the military junta in Niger while citing the likely consequence of such action on Nigeria.

The Economic Community of West African States had issued a seven-day ultimatum to the military junta in the Niger Republic to restore democracy by returning power to Mohammed Bazoum, which led to several sanctions, part of which resulted in the closure of borders with Niger, including an indefinite suspension of flight activities.
