President Muhammadu Buhari has held separate closed-door meetings with the Governors of Oyo and Ondo States, Seyi Makinde and Rotimi Akeredolu, in the Presidential Villa, Abuja, to discuss security challenges in their respective domains.
Makinde told State House correspondents, after the meeting, that he was in the Villa to present correct and accurate information concerning security developments in Oyo State to the President.
He said the presentation was imperative, given the amount of fake news being disseminated.
He said he also used the opportunity of the meeting to demand for additional Mobile Police Squadrons to man the over about 29,000 square kilometres land mass of Oyo State.
Gov. Akeredolu, who later met with the President, however, declined to comment on the outcome of the meeting.
On his part, the Ooni of Ife who met with the President earlier, briefed State House correspondents after his meeting.
He urged all stakeholders to avoid politicising the issue of insecurity while advising that politics should be separated from insecurity in order not to jeopardize the lives of citizens in the country.
The traditional ruler also stressed the need for all State governors and other leaders to partner with traditional rulers to achieve peace and progress in the country.
