President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday met separately with three state governors from the Northern part of the country on issues bothering on the possible oil exploration in the North as well as security among others.

The governors include Ibrahim Geidam of Yobe State; Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State and Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa State.

The meetings were held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Tambuwal told State House correspondents that he briefed Buhari of the outcome of the recent visit of some Northern governors to the South East over growing agitations across the country.

He said, “I came to see our leader, President Muhammadu Buhari, and we had discussion on quite a number of issues. Of specific mention is the issue of the general well-being of the country, security situation of the country.

“I am sure you are aware that recently we were in the South East as governors from the North.

“We went to interact with our brothers in the South East and South South and particularly people of the North residing there. So there was a need for a feedback.”

The governor said he also seized the opportunity of the meeting to brief Buhari on possible oil exploration in the Sokoto Basin.

He said there was the need for the Federal Government to continue to support the endeavour which he said would help in the provision of more oil and gas for the country and bringing about agricultural revolution in that area.

The governor said the oil had always been in the basin since 1957 when the first attempt was made.
