A Borno traditional chief and member of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Hassan Zanna Boguma has said the escalation of attacks by Boko Haram in addition to other killings and kidnappings across the country shows that President Muhammadu Buhari has failed to tackle the issue of insecurity.
According to Premium Times, Hassan made the statement during an exclusive interview with Arewa Agenda.
The traditional chief, who holds that title of Boguma of Borno alleged that the Buhari administration has not done enough to develop the northern region which immensely contributed to his victory during the election.
He said northerners were being killed by terrorists and armed bandits without a solution in sight.
“As far as Nigeria is concerned Buhari only appointed our sons into positions, but they haven’t done enough in terms of development," he reportedly told Arewa Agenda.
Boguma said the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) worked hard for Buhari to become president, including lobbying the United States of America to support his candidacy.
The traditional chief disclosed that he was part of the delegation sent by the NEF to Washington to have a discussion with all those that matter in America politics about supporting Buhari.
He also pointed out that the current administration in five years hasn’t done enough to remedy the situation the previous government was accused of.
Meanwhile, President Buhari has received a commendation for propelling the military into stamping out Boko Haram terrorists across the northeast.
The Middle Belt Conscience Guard (MBCG) said the president deserves hearty encomiums for the rewarding impact of the anti-insurgency campaigns.
Speaking at a press conference in Abuja on Sunday, August 16, the group's publicity secretary, Dan Okwa, said the president has not only curbed insurgency in five states in the northeast, but also halted the evil virus from spreading into the Federal Capital Territory, Benue, Kogi and up the southwest.
Okwa said the entire narration has changed for good since President Buhari assumed office in May 2015. He recalled the era of multiple bombings across the region which escalated to other parts of the country, particularly the FCT.
