Canceled South-South meeting: Presidency reacts

The Presidency on Wednesday said that the absence of the Federal Government delegation at the planned meeting with governors and stakeholders of the South-South region was necessitated by an emergency security meeting summoned by the President and not out of disrespect.

Recall that the Federal Government delegation through the Office of Chief of Staff to the President had scheduled to meet with the governors and stakeholders of the South-South geopolitical zones on the ongoing dialogue with leaders of various geopolitical zones at the wake of the nationwide protests by youth tagged, #EndSARS Protests.

But the government delegation could not attend despite the fact that the leaders including the royal fathers all assembled in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital for the meeting.

Irked by the absence of the Federal Government delegation, the governors and stakeholders felt it was a slight on their zone for government not to attend a meeting it organized by itself and demanded an apology.

In reaction to the demand for apology, the Presidency through the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu explained that the emergency security meeting summoned by President Muhammadu Buhari over the worsening security situation in some parts of the country was responsible for the absence of government delegation.

The statement read, “The Presidency wishes to explain that the absence of the federal government delegation at the planned meeting with governors and stakeholders of the South-South region was necessitated by an emergency security meeting summoned by the President, certainly not out of disrespect.

“The delegation to the meeting, under the Chief of Staff to the President, Professor Ibrahim Gambari, ministers and heads of security and intelligence agencies were in full readiness to proceed to Port Harcourt until they were directed to stay back for the emergency security meeting.

“This information and regret for the inconvenience caused were conveyed to the hosts of the meeting through what we believed were the right channels.

“As may have been gleaned from the statement read by the Minister of Police Affairs, Muhammad Maigari Dingyadi, the extraordinary National Security Council meeting, under the President, was called in view of the gravity of the security situation affecting all parts of the country, including the South-South in the aftermath of the ENDSARS protests, and the need to rise to protect our national security and territorial integrity.

“The President is strongly and resolutely committed to hearing from leaders, stakeholders and our youth on burning issues affecting all parts of the federation, and to this effect, a new date for the meeting with the South-South will be agreed after due consultations with the parties concerned.

Once again, the unavoidable postponement of the meeting is regretted.”

Shattttap there!

It won't be surprising if they entirely boycott the meeting knowing fully well that they are the least prepared government for a meeting that requires a positive progression and outcome.

A very flimsy excuse there from the presidency. Did they call any emergency meeting during #EndSARS protest when the country was seriously boiling? Did they even show any concern? Why did they now have to call emergency meeting when very important matters concerning a very important region in the country are about to be discussed?

It's only in Nigeria that you hear of Presidency making a statement. All over the world, you either have the President or Prime Minister except Germany that has a Chancellor.

Where did we learn this presidency stuff from, because I noticed this nomenclature began few years ago

SE, I have been telling you guys you have the most fooolish leaders in Nigeria.

Una dey see something now shey?


Fulani go dey kill for Ebonyi state, IPOB go dey try fight back and extremely fooolish 20-year old Igbos for SW go dey say "I don't support MNK". Very silly idiotts.

Before you open that your stinking mouth, first view this: undecided

Up Oodua. The time to secede is now. Kudos Makinde, but you will still have to eventually shift. We no need Nigeria abeg.

The Fulanis will eventually conquer us if we don't break out in time. Amotekun only forestalls the eventuality. The North still has the power and all past stolen and current resources. The Fulanis and Hausas still reproduce and marry far more than every tribe. We will still be consumed by population Jihad eventually.


Sheybi e mo wipe awon Fulani n pa wa ni Ilorin, abi e e mo ni i? I am warning now, break off quickly now time still dey! cool
