The Presidency announced today that President Goodluck Jonathan will address the nation at 7pm tonight.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati said the president’s address will be aired on the network services of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FCRN) and the Voice of Nigeria (VON).

The President held meetings will top government executives earlier today with the nation’s security and the growing violence in the north the subject of the deliberations. Sources say tonight’s address will be on the same matter, as the president is expected to speak on the government’s efforts at ensuring a lasting solution to the growing menace of insecurity and incessant attacks in the country, and the successes recorded so far in the fight, if any, especially in talks with the dreaded Islamist sect, Boko Haram.

Hundreds of lives have been lost in recent weeks in different attacks on security formations across the country.

The president showed great concern for his country’s challenge as he cut short his trip to some Southern African countries last Thursday to attend to violent attacks in the country.
