The governor of Borno State, Gov. Kashim Shettima has congratulated resident of North Eastern Nigeria, stating that the return of President Muhammadu Buhari’s return to Nigeria, after a medical vacation will be a big boost toward ending the Boko Haram terrorism in the troubled region.
Shettima said “The people of the North-East should be congratulated as the major beneficiaries of Buhari’s return because of his open love, empathy and keen interest in addressing the security challenges in the sub-region.
“Before the coming of Buhari in 2015, the North- East was the most marginalised in everything that had to do with the Federal Government,from the presence of Federal projects to representation at national levels.
“But he changed that soon after he assumed the mantle of leadership and made the region the bride of his administration, in terms of national representation. For this and other reasons, Buhari occupies a special place in the hearts and minds of all true sons and daughters of the six states that make up the North-East geo-political zone.
“We are grateful to God for returning him in good health.
“We pray that his health continues to grow from strength to strength, to enable him complete his noble mission to fully restore Nigeria to the path of recovery, sustainable progress and development.
“On behalf of the government and the good people of Borno, we are indeed most grateful to all good Nigerians for standing by Buhari.’’
