- Borno leaders have been accused of not cooperating the fight against Boko Haram insurgency
- President blamed the leaders for the unending Boko Haram menace in the state
- Going further, the president asked for cooperation with the security agencies from the local community
President Muhammadu Buhari has blamed community leaders in Borno state over the unending Boko Haram saga.
The president alleged that the leaders are not cooperating enough with the military to end the Boko Haram insurgency.
According to Buhari, the insurgents cannot visit the state without the knowledge of the community leaders.
The president said this in reaction to Governor Babagana Zulum and the Shehu of Borno’s comments.
Specifically, the president called for intelligence sharing with the local population.
Going further, he begged the people of Borno to cooperate with the government to end insurgency because it is the future that is being protected.
He also wondered how the insurgency survived until the present time. However, he promised to ensure the security of the country.
"In my understanding of our culture, I wonder how Boko Haram survives up to this time."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) called on President Buhari to find ways to end killings in Nigeria.
The opposition party disclosed this in reaction to Buhari's visits to Maiduguri, Borno state.
According to the PDP, it is necessary for Buhari to go beyond his sympathy visit to Borno state.
In a statement on the party's Facebook page, the PDP said Nigerians have lost confidence in the Buhari presidency.
The party asked Buhari to visit Kaduna, Kano, Benue, Plateau, Yobe, Adamawa, Zamfara, Kogi, Niger, Taraba and other states.
The PDP said this will make the president feel the pulse of the country and understand how his poor handling of security and infrastructure has cost Nigeria.
