- A faction of the opposition in Borno says it is happy with the governor of the state, Babagana Zulum and his performance
- Usman Badeiri, chairman of the faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, said it is wonderful that Zulum had performed that much in just eight months
- Baderi warns that his positive remark about Zulum's government does not show that he is moving to the All Progressives Congress (APC)
Even though his state is troubled, Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno is performing wonders, a faction of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said.
Chairman of the faction in the state, Usman Badeiri, said his party was happy with the governor and was impressed with his performance within the short period he had stayed in government.
Baderi specifically said the governor had made serious marks in the area of security and development of the state.
Daily Trust reports that the factional opposition party chairman gave his assessment of Zulum's government and performance in a statement.
He, however, doused any insinuation that may occur from his positive assessment of the government by saying that he and those he leads are not planning to move over to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said his faction of the PDP simply decided to do away with party politics and sentiments to state what he considers the right position of the state under Zulum, whom he said merits such honour.
Baderi noted that it was surprising that the governor had achieved the feat just within eight months of taking over the saddle of the state.
“It took us 8 months to come to terms with what we consider an obligatory need for us to speak about the kind of Governor Borno is very lucky to have.
"The PDP in Borno acknowledges, that Governor Zulum has been extremely supportive of the fight against Boko Haram, by not only providing the necessary tools to the established armed forces, but to equally critical volunteers.
“ Zulum has regularly been on humanitarian and developmental tour of most of Borno’s communities across the 27 local government areas, including tough and high risk terrains,” he said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reports that Governor Zulum, on Tuesday, January 28, named two issues that have kept Boko Haram insurgency and attacks unabated in the north eastern part of Nigeria.
Zulum argued that there is increasing trust deficit between the military and civil authorities.
He also identified what he described as lack of strategic planning as some of the issues responsible for the continued battle against the insurgents.
