A delegation from the Northern Governors Forum will today and tomorrow

among all sections of the country.
The team, to be

Kashim Shattima, will have in the team Governor Aminu Bello Masari of
Katsina, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi
and Hon Simon Lalong of Plateau States..
“The delegation will hold meetings with their counterparts in Rivers, Abia and Imo States. 
“Apart
from the visit to political leaderships in those states, the delegation
is expected to meet with traditional and religious leaders. They will
also confer with Northerners resident in those states.
“Importantly,
the delegation will reassure their counterparts in the South South and
South East that all Nigerians are free to stay in all parts of the
country, especially in the North, and that the entire North stands with
the people of South East in this period of heightened tension,”
according to a statement issued by Tambuwal’s spokesman, Malam Imam
Imam, on behalf of the other Governors.
The
visit has the blessing of President Muhammadu Buhari and the
consultations will continue with all stakeholders so as to enhance unity
and peace in the federation.
