The Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, on Monday broke down in tears when a delegation from the state visited President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.
The governor was moved to tears because of what he described as the recent setback in the fight against insurgency.
He, however, noted that the leaders had not lost hope in the President’s ability to win the war and restore peace in the state.
Amidst the tears, he told the President that the delegation came to present a set of observations and specific requests from a security meeting held a week ago in the state, which will require urgent presidential intervention.
Others present include the National security Adviser, Chief of Staff, the DG of DSS and NIA, Chief of Defense Staff and members of the National Assembly.
The meeting is still ongoing behind closed doors.
