Ten governors from northern Nigeria, representing the North West and North Central regions, have been invited to a peace and security summit to be held in Washington DC, The United States, from April 23 to 25, 2024

Ibrahim Kaula Mohammed, the media aide to the Katsina State governor, Dikko Umar Radda, in a statement Tuesday, disclosed that the summit is organised by the Africa Centre at the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) and aimed to address the pressing security challenges in northern Nigeria. 

The governors invited are Dikko Umar Radda (Katsina), Uba Sani (Kaduna), Abba Kabir Yusuf (Kano), Nasir Idris (Kebbi) and Umar Namadi (Jigawa). 

Others are Ahmad Aliyu (Sokoto), Dauda Lawal (Zamfara), Hyacinth Alia (Benue), Mohammed Bago (Niger) and Caleb Mutfwang (Plateau). 

The event will convene state governors, relevant U.S. government officials, congressional staff, and NGO partners, the statement revealed. 

“Recognising the crucial role of state governors in mitigating security threats and fostering peace, the symposium aims to enhance their capacity in conflict prevention and peacebuilding efforts across Nigeria.  

“Through dialogue and collaboration, the Africa Centre seeks to empower governors to address the underlying causes of instability and strengthen peacebuilding initiatives at local and state levels,” the statement read in part.
