President Muhammadu Buhari arrived Taraba state with Governor Darius Ishaku for on-the-spot security assessment.
Buhari who is under fire because of mounting security threats, including Boko Haram, is to tour states worst-hit by the violence, his office said Monday.
Buhari’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, said he would be making an “on-the-spot assessment” of “recent terrorist attacks, criminal activities and communal clashes” on his visits.
He would also “meet and console the communities affected”.
Adesina sought to play down allegations that Buhari is out of touch with the security situation, saying he had received daily briefings and been “in constant touch” with governors.
