The North-East Governors Forum (NEGF) has urged foreign countries to proffer solutions to the crisis in the region.
The body of six governors, chaired by Borno helmsman Babagana Zulum, met in Jalingo, the Taraba capital, on Tuesday.
British High Commissioner, Catriona Laing was at the venue of the meeting held at the Taraba Government House.
In attendance were Zulum, Governors of Taraba (Darius Ishaku), Adamawa (Umaru Fintri), Bauchi (Bala Mohammed), Gombe (Inuwa Yahaya) while Mai Mala Buni of Yobe was represented.

The forum asked “the diplomatic community, partners and donor agencies supporting the region to activate the process of transiting from humanitarian to stabilization and durable solution within the region”.
The governors said this will ensure sustainability and give people the opportunity to help themselves out of poverty.
The chief executives agreed that foreign assistance will help to address the “socio-economic dimension of insecurity”.
The forum condemned the impact of drug and narcotic substances in the region, stressing that the menace fuels insurgency and other forms of criminality.
The communique solicits support against drug trafficking and seeks enforcement of narcotic control within the six states and across the borders.
The governors complained that the level of consultation between the North-East Development Commission (NEDC) and state governments is low and demanded speed of work on ongoing projects.
