The Executive Governor of Borno State, Professor Babagana Zulum has felicitated with Christian faithful in the state and in Nigeria as a whole at Easter.
Governor, in a statement by Isa Gusau, the governor spokesperson called on residents to pray and indicate on main messages of Easter which align with the Government of Borno programme that receives the mass surrender of terrorists.
The repentant terrorists are currently undergoing security profiling, demilitarization, demobilization and comfortable reintegration protocols that can ensure the full recovery of endurable peace in the state
In over 12-year of our fightings with Terrorists, (Boko Haram and later, ISWAP) in Borno State, for the first-time, has a bright window that has the capacity of stopping the insurgency.”
“The mass-repentants of over 35,000 combatants and their leaders, is actually one of Allah’s many miracles, towards restorative Borno state and the entire North-East.”
“This mass surrender is the result of the unbroken prayers the residents across the state, the north-east, the Nigeria and indeed the globe, have been requesting, aspiring God’s intervention, to restore Borno State. It is the result of enormous sacrifices by the Nigeria Security agencies and volunteers. It is a result of recounted calls by political administrators, clergies, olders and traditional leaders, asking terrorists to lay down their weapons and conceal peace.”
We must therefore be positive in receiving the likely advantages of disarming, demobilizing, renovating and incorporating the mass-repentant terrorists.”
“However, we must cheer them without ignoring the threats attributed with the programme, hence the desire for sustained stringent security-profiling and other protocols, that can guarantee the comprehensive safety of the programme.”
“Zulum, hence, urge Nigerian citizens to fervently pray for the success of the mass-repentant of those who pursue peace, and for the victories of our security armies and volunteers in the front-line against those who demand chaos
