President Buhari Holds Closed Door Meeting With Obaseki In Aso Rock
President Muhammadu Buhari, on Friday held a closed-door meeting with the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The governor told State House correspondents at the end of the meeting that Edo State government would partner with Federal Government agencies to tackle human trafficking, illegal migration and modern slavery in the state.
The governor said: “I discussed with the President two critical issues that bother us in Edo. One, is the issue of human trafficking and irregular migration.
“As you know it is a problem with Edo which we have accepted and we have rolled out our strategies to deal with them and we want to work with the federal government and other agencies of government to end this scourge of human trafficking and modern slavery.
“It is against the ethos of humanity for us to accept what is going on with our young people today.
“So, I came to see the President to explain what we are doing in Edo State and to solicit for more federal support for our actions.”
