The Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, broke down in tears on Monday as he met President Muhammadu Buhari over the insurgency in the north east, especially Borno.

Shettima had met the president in company of the nation’s security chiefs and some leaders of the state.

The governor told the president that his (Buhari’s) emergence as Commander-in-Chief was expected to bring an end to the Boko Haram insurgency.

Shettima said, “Between 2013 and 2014, we witnessed the most daring and most viscious evil of the Boko Haram, losing 20 Local Government Areas.

“However, we rushed here because of the recent upsurge in the activities of the demented monster called Boko Haram especially in northern Borno senatorial district. We are here because since 2015, Mr. President, you were able to restore our hope.

“Sir, you have demonstrated empathy for Borno and the overriding commitment to ending the Boko Haram. This is why we rushed here on witnessing some setback.

“We are here because we thought that Allah will use you to fully reclaim Borno traditional glory of being the home of peace. We are here as a people who worked, prayed and waited for your Presidency in the firm belief that with you as the Commander In Chief, Boko Haram will become history in Borno.”
