He said he came to meet minds with the President on security issue in Nasarawa as well as other issues.

He said he also discussed the possibility of federal government take-over of Jitata Road, which serves as an alternative route from the state to the FCT.

Governir Sule stated that some of the Boko Haram elements who were active in the Nasarawa State belonged to the Darussalam group that had been dislodged from Niger.

He said that consequent upon a joint security operation, a lot of them were killed while 900 were arrested.

Sule said Nasarawa had continued to have security challenges.

He noted that having briefed the president, he was confident that action would be taken to curtail the menace.
