Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa, Abuja on Friday to brief him on the current security situation in the state, saying afterwards that it would require a political solution to end what he called “madness,” afflicting the state.
He told state house correspondents after the meeting that the kinetic measures currently being applied would not be enough to solve the security problems.
The governor said the youth of the state must be empowered by all levels of government to be able to live a meaningful life.
He called for the creation of jobs for the youth and the provision of enabling environment for citizens to return their homes to resume their normal lives.
The governor affirmed that his administration has been able to facilitate the return of about 100,000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) to their homes.
More to come.
