Listen to article

An expanded National Security Council between President Goodluck Jonathan,

Heads of military and Para-military organizations, state governors and

some ministers Thursday unanimously condemned the memo written by the

governor of Adamawa state, Murtala Nyako in which he accused president

Goodluck Jonathan of carrying out genocide against the north.

Addressing state House Correspondents after the meeting, the Minister of

Defence , Gen. Aliyu Gusau who was  flanked by the governors of Niger,

Abia, Borno and Ekiti states said the meeting enjoined all holders of

Public offices to be wary of statements that are capable of exacerbating

the already precarious security situation in the country.

Governor Babangida Aliyu who spoke on some of the decisions reached at the

meeting said, “I am sure many of you will be curious about the memo

written by one of us. We looked at it all. Infact he was allowed to read

the memo to all of us and we discussed and concluded that for all of us,

we need to be very careful with the kind of statement we make”.
