PLATEAU State Governor, Simon Bako Lalong, yesterday held a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari over the recent suspension of the Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), David Paradang.

At the meeting, the governor also briefed the President on the current security challenges resulting from the ethnic clashes between the Beroms and Fulani cattle headers, which has claimed several thousands of lives and left hundreds of homes destroyed and huge investments destroyed.

Lalong told State House correspondents after the meeting that his visit was part of the routine consultations with the President, who is like a father to all Nigerians. He noted: “I came to see the President on some issues affecting my state.

“I feel comfortable with the response I got and that is why I am smiling. I told him what we are doing on insecurity in our state.

“Also, on the suspension of the Comptroller-General of Immigration, who incidentally is from my state, when you have issues like these in a political period, you must find ways of looking for reasons. If anything affects any part of your body, you must show concern.”

However, he refused to give details of the discussion on Paradang, insisting that the matter was still under investigation.
