President Buhari also met behind closed doors with Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State.

Governor Ortom said he visited the president to brief him on the security situation in his state.

Governor Ortom said the law on ranching, which he put in place, is working very well.

President Buhari also met with the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai; Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo of Gombe and Governor Willy Obiano of Anambra state; Obiano said he was in the villa to thank Mr President for the continuation of work at the second Niger bridge.
