The Chairman of the NGF, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, who led three other governors; Aminu Tambuwal (Sokoto), Abubakar Bagudu (Kebbi) and Simon Lalong (Plateau), on a visit to the Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, issued this warning yesterday in Maiduguri.

A statement issued by the Head, Media and Public Affairs of the NGF, Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, said Fayemi made the donation of N100m on behalf of the 36 governors of the federation to the government and people of Borno State to assist the government in its effort to rebuild the state.

According to the statement, the NGF chairman, Dr. Kayode Fayemi “admonished Prof. Zulum to exercise caution in his activities in the state, even though he narrated how the Borno State Governor always responded by saying that his life was in the hands of Allah and that death would only come when Allah wills.”

He said, “If we do not tame the tide of the problem that we are seeing here, it will inexorably consume our entire country. That’s why we must associate with you; we must demonstrate solidarity and show concern, so that not just at our own level, but the leadership in the entire country that is already doing a lot to confront this challenge will also do more.”

In response, Zulum was quoted as promising to exercise greater caution in his movements around the state, but that he vowed not to give up on his commitment to the people of Borno State, especially internally displaced persons who he promised to return to their ancestral homes.

KanyiDaily had reported that Boko Haram terrorists attacked the convoy of Governor Zulum while returning home in Maiduguri on Sunday evening.

The attack came barely 48 hours after the governor’s convoy was ambushed by the terrorist group who killed 30 persons including 12 policemen, five soldiers, four members of a government-backed militia, and nine civilians.
