The Borno traditional Chief, Alhaji Zanna Hassan Boguma, has said that despite claims, President Muhammadu Buhari has failed to tackle the issue of insecurity, especially in the North East.
Alhaji Hassan, who is the Zanna Boguma of Borno, said the escalation of attacks by Boko Haram on soft targets, the issue of kidnapping on highways, and the systematic dislocation of communities that were living around the metropolis, are issues of grave security concern that had continued unabated.
Boguma, who is also a member of the Northern Elders Forum, NEF, and Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, berated the Presidency for not doing enough on developmental efforts in the Northern region despite their immense contribution to his victories in the polls.
“As far as Nigeria is concerned, Buhari only appointed our sons into positions but they haven’t done enough in terms of development.
Northerners are being killed by terrorists and armed bandits without a solution in sight. “General Buhari, yes! We northerners voted for him.
The massive votes that came out from North were the reason he is President of this country now,’’ he said.
