President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday met with Vice-President Namadi Sambo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Naija News reports that the meeting was made known in a post on Twitter by the Personal Assistant on New Media to the President, Bashir Ahmad.

Details of the meeting have not been made known as of the time of filing in this report.

Meanwhile, a former military Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, has asked state governors to watch was what they say so as not to incite communal clashes in Nigeria.

Speaking on Arise TV’s ‘The Morning Show’, he asked governors to embrace dialogue and take full responsibility for securing lives and properties.

Abdulsalami, who is the Chairman of the National Peace Committee, lamented that Nigerians have not learnt from past mistakes of inter-tribal wars.

He said, “The governors have found themselves in a difficult situation. It is their responsibility to guard their states regardless of who and who is in their states. Ethnic disharmony is rearing itself all over the place. You could see where the herders are being chased from some of parts of the Southern states and their cattle are being killed. Certainly, this heightened tension in the country.

“Some people are also migrating from one part of the country back to their states where they feel safer. God forbid this is taking us back to the 1960 where we had a problem that resulted in the civil war. That is why myself and the peace committee are calling for caution so that we do not go back to that road.”
