ADAMAWA State Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, says the insurgency being witnessed in the North-East will if a president from the region emerges.

Fintiri, who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Prof. Maxwell Gidado, disclosed this at 2021 North East Star Magazine awards, yesterday, where he was honoured as the Governor of the Year.

The governor noted that insurgency in the North-East would end within the first term of the Presidency of any candidate of North Eastern extraction.

He added that though the former chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, did his best in trying to bring the insurgency to the end, he said his effort only resulted in modest gains because the counter-insurgency efforts did not get the 100 per cent support required from the presidency.

“The Boko Haram insurgency will be wiped out in the first term of a president from the North East. It is a popular saying that he, who wears the shoe, knows where it pinches him. Lt. Gen. Buratai did his best when he was at the helm of affairs.

“If he had been given 100 per cent support, I want to believe, he would have snuffed out the terrorists in Sambisa forest, Fintiri said.
