The consultations were on the way out of the security challenges currently confronting Nigeria.

The vice president, who fielded questions from newsmen after the meeting, said the meeting was on the instruction of President Muhammadu Buhari.

He, however, said that some people were working against the interest of the country by trying to cause instability.

He expressed optimism that by God’s grace, Nigeria would overcome all its problems and set itself on the path of peace and prosperity.

The vice president, in the company of Abiodun, then proceeded to Ijebu Ode, where he also held a private meeting with the Awujale of Ijebu Kingdom, Oba Sikiru Adetona.

He said they had discussed the very important steps to take in order to improve the security architecture generally.

According to Prof Yemi Osinbajo, the monarch has given a lot of insight; his own views, on what needs to be done, how to go about it; and what has been done already.
