The Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima, Wednesday [May 4] said the people of the state were saved from extinction by the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari at last year’s general election.
The governor, who claimed that had the result gone otherwise the people would have fled from the state by now and this would have left the state deserted, called on the people to show their dissatisfaction towards those politicians who abandoned them at the peak of the crisis.
Speaking in Hausa at the commencement of distribution of relief materials in Maiduguri by the National Logistics Committee on Distribution of Relief Materials, Shettima said:
“The politicians who left us to our troubles in the last five years only to come back when peace has returned to the state to tell us that Jonathan’s administration was better than the present should be stoned just like the Satan is stoned at the Kaaba.”
