By Yakubu Uba, Maiduguri.
Gov. Babagana Zulum of Borno has reiterated his administration’s commitment to sustaining support to the military and other security agencies in the fight against insurgency.
The governor made the declaration on Sunday in Monguno during his visit to the headquarters of Sector 3 of Operation Hadin Kai and Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) at Kinnasara Cantonment.
Zulum, who congratulated the new Commander of MNJTF, Maj.-Gen. Abdul-Kalifah Ibrahim, for his appointment, lauded the role of the task force in maintaining security in the border areas of northern Borno.
He noted that the improvement in security in the area had led to return of displaced persons in the geopolitical zone back to their ancestral homes, particularly in major towns like Baga, Cross Kauwa, and Mallam-Fatori.
Receiving the governor, the Sector Commander, Brig.-Gen. A.E Abubakar, thanked the governor for the solidarity visit and assured him of the military’s commitment to securing the lives and property of the people of Borno and the nation in general.
