Guterres also applauded Governor Zulum’s approach in the fight against terrorism throughout the state.
“I have discovered that here in Borno, thanks to the governor, you have understood and put in place the right approach to fight terrorism; of course, when we fight terrorists, we need to shoot at them; we need to have armies, but that would not solve the problem if we did not address the root cause. What I have seen here in Borno was a governor determined to address those root causes.”
The meeting between Zulum and the UN chief was shared by the Borno state government's Facebook page.
