The resolution followed the recent mass killings in Jos, Plateau State, by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

The Governors condemned, in strong terms, the attacks and called for the persecution of the perpetrators to serve as deterrent to others.

They also commiserated with the government and people of Plateau State even as they planned to pay a condolence visit to the troubled state, on Friday.

The NGF chairman said, words, “We, the members of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) at our meeting held today at the NGF Secretariat, Abuja deliberated on several issues and resolved as follows:

“The Forum strongly condemned recent attacks in Plateau State and the spate of insecurity in the country. Members commiserated with the government and people of Plateau and other states including victims who were caught in transit traveling to and from neighbouring states.

“Governors unanimously called for the prosecution of the perpetrators of the attacks and resolved to find a quick and common solution to the security crisis.

“The Forum resolved to pay a condolence visit to Plateau State to commiserate with the government and people of the state.

“Governors noted with delight and thanked President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President for their quick response and visit to Plateau State to show empathy to the people of the state. We equally commend Governor Simon Lalong for the way he handled the very sad situation.

“Governors resolved to hold a one-day meeting with the security chiefs to come up with a holistic solution to the country’s security situation.”
