President Muhammadu Buhari is now presiding over a meeting with the country's security council at his residence in Abuja, on Tuesday, August 22, 2017.

The Service Chiefs at the meeting were the Chief of Defence, Gen. Gabriel Olonisakin; Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai; Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar; and Chief of Naval Staff, Rear Admiral Ibot-Ete Ibas.

Speaking through its National Secretary, Yinka Odumakin, Afenifere said it was wrong for the President to deal with the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and Boko Haram in the same manner.

Mr Toyin Adenugba, a lawyer with the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) wants Buhari's government to concentrate more on electricity generation, water supply and the economy.

Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has directed security agencies to safeguard the lives and property of all citizens and secure the nation's borders from aggressors.

"On the Boko Haram issue, you all know it is an asymmetric warfare. In everything, the South-East region will get its own fair share", he said. In spite of broad-based condemnations and efforts by leaders and youth groups from the South East and the North to seek amicable settlement, some hate songs were issued in the North against Ndigbo in their midst.

The group's convener, Mr. Steve Anyata, said the rally was meant to "counter the inhumane demonstrations by a handful of sponsored elements" calling for the return or resignation of the President when he was in London.

He said, "Mr. President, it is noteworthy to inform you that while you were away, a lot took place".

"But we are glad to say that the Vice- President, Prof".

The president who recently returned back to the country after over 103 days in London has continued to enjoy goodwill from all the country's region. We therefore believe that with your return, this issue and others will receive your attention. His personal diplomatic touch in dealing with the explosive socio-political situations that confronted us went a long way in keeping situations under control.
