Governor Nasiru El-Rufai of Kaduna State, who revealed this while briefing Journalists at the end of the meeting, said the meeting noted the significant improvement in the affected states of Borno, Yobe, Adamawa and Kaduna.

He said there is no reason why election will not hold in the affected states because there is a significant improvement in the security situation in those states.

Governor El-Rufai said the President assured the Governors that whatever additional security assets were needed in addition to what is already on ground, the Federal government would make it available to ensure that elections are held peacefully in their states.

On his part, Governor, Kassim Shettima of Borno State spoke on the recent attack on his convoy by Boko Haram terrorists.

Governor Shettima also noted that the security situation in Borno has greatly improved and President Buhari deserves commendation for the improvement.

He assured the people of Borno State that the Boko Haram madness would one day end, adding that he would not be deterred by the Boko Haram threats.

The Acting Inspector general of Police, Mohammed Adamu in a separate briefing assured Nigerians of adequate security as they troop out to vote in the Presidential and National Assembly elections on Saturday.

IGP Adamu also warned mischief makers and thugs to stay clear of carrying out their nefarious activities on Election Day or face the dire consequences.
