The Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum of Borno State, has insisted that President Buhari must know the truth about the security situation in the North-East part of Nigeria.
Governor Babagana Zulum maintained that there is sabotage in the system that will not allow terrorists to stop operating in the northern region.
The Governor spoke on Sunday, 2nd August, during a meeting with his counterparts from Kebbi and Jigawa States, Atiku Bagudu, and Badaru Abubakar, respectively, who paid him a solidarity visit over the recent attack in Baga.
Governor Babagana said some elements are trying to frustrate the effort of President Buhari’s government in ending terrorism, adding that President Buhari needs to know the truth.
He said, “Let me also re-echo my previous position concerning the level of insurgency in Borno State, I earlier said that the gravity of the rebellion could not be compared with what has happened between 2011 to 2015, and 2015 to date. Yes, it’s true. The President has done well.
“But there’s sabotage in the system that will not allow the insurgency to end; the President has to know this critical point.
“When he came to Maiduguri two months ago, I said so because between 2011 to 2015, at a time, almost about 22 LGAs were under the insurgents.”
Governor Babagana lamented that out of the four roads that lead to the State capital, Maiduguri, only one was functional.
Governor Zulum urged Buhari to examine the security situation in the North-East part of Nigeria is critically, to ensure the effort of the current administration was not in vain.
