He pledged to review the security situation in the South-East zone of the country.
Minister of Power, Abubakar Aliyu, and his Chief Economic Adviser, Prof. Doyin Salami, have simiarly been summoned to a meeting at the Presidential Villa on Monday.
The president’s Media Aide, Malam Garba Shehu, confirmed this in a statement issued in Abuja on Monday.
Shehu said that the president would meet with them separately and be apprised of the latest developments in Imo, the power sector and the state of the economy.
The president had also expressed his concern over frequent power outages, apologising to Nigerians and assuring of prompt solution to the challenges. (Adapted from a NAN report)
