Northeast Governors met in Yola, Adamawa State capital to discuss issues of kidnapping and insurgency ravaging most of its states.

The Host Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri in his speech called on other governors to prioritize security issues and also rally against other issues that are setting the subregion back.

The Governor also stressed the need to work so as to empty camps currently occupied by internally displaced persons (IDPs) through a strict fight against insurgency, adding that a collaborative effort against kidnapping in the region will allow residents go about their daily activities without the fear of being kidnapped.
