“We have the same trust and confidence in the leadership of our armed forces led by the Commander-in-Chief, President Muhammadu Buhari. Mr President has, without doubt, consistently given us listening ears with clear evidence of compassion for Borno and the genuine will to end the Boko Haram crisis which is Nigeria’s most pressing problem.
“I respectfully urge fellow Nigerians within and outside Borno to continually pray for peace and prosperity of our dear country and to renew our individual and communal obligations to be patriotic citizens of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” Gov. Zulum said.
