President Muhammadu Buhari will on Thursday meet with security chiefs at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
It would be recalled the President returned to Abuja last Friday after 18 days in London, during which he attended an education summit and did health checks.
Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina in a statement on Tuesday noted that the security forces have in the past few weeks taken the battle more robustly to insurgents, bandits, and all other criminals troubling the country, and they are now surrendering in droves.
“The President will be brought up to speed on developments at the Thursday meeting, while plans to bring a decisive end to the challenges will be formulated”.
Although the agenda of the meeting were not made public, it was learnt from sources within the Presidential Villa that continued plea for forgiveness and call for Amnesty for repentant Boko Haram fighters which has been under public criticism might be reviewed by the Buhari regime to hand them over for prosecution.
It was also learnt that the Presidency new hard stand against Bandits will be strategized upon with focus on dismissing them through newly acquired aircraft. The recent Taliban activities and dastardly acts of gunmen who shot Nigerien soldiers and ran into Nigeria is a cause of anger for President Buhari.
It was also gathered that the federal Government at the meeting will wrap up arrangements to stall the one million march of Yoruba Nation agitators in New York.
Our source said two things are creating worry for the Presidency now which are the effect of banditry on educational development through inconsistent closure of schools and focus on kidnap of school children. Situations where Bandits give notice of attack to academic institutions and nothing is done is no more acceptable to the Presidency.
It was also said the implication of criminals disturbing farmers in several manners hindering some to go to their farms and a resultant famine has drawn the red eye of President Buhari a former military General and farmer himself. A new marching order will be given the Security chiefs on these two vital issues by the President who has vowed not to toy with the two areas.
