Insecurity: We’re lucky to have Buhari in power, says Shehu of Borno
THE Shehu of Borno, Abubakar El-Kanemi, yesterday, said Borno State is lucky to have President Muhammadu Buhari in government as his reign has changed the tide against insecurity significantly.
This is as the President of the Senate, Dr. Ahmad Lawan, has also lent his support to the Boko Haram terrorists turning themselves in to the Nigerian troops, saying the move should be seen as a welcome development and should be encouraged to end insurgency in the NorthEast.
The Shehu of Borno, who spoke when Lawan paid him a courtesy call over the loss of his elder brother, said his people had “seriously suffered as a result of Boko Haram crisis,” but added that they were “lucky” to have the Buhari government, which eventually changed the tide.
According to him, all the local government areas in the state, which were under the control of Boko Haram had been taken back by the troops, adding that normal business activities had also returned in the state.
He also rejoiced at the news that Boko Haram elements were surrendering, saying, “it’s a welcome development”, because “Borno is a home of peace and we are for peace.”
