<p class="">Gov. Babagana Zulum of Borno on Monday assured that the state government would spend its last kobo to support the military and strengthen Civilian JTF and hunters, to eliminate terrorism.</p>

<h1>Zulum gave the promise when he received the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, who visited him in Maiduguri.</h1>

<p class="">He vowed that the state government would rise to the challenge of defending the people by supporting the military in terms of intelligence and logistics.</p>

<p class="">“<em>The chief of army staff, count on me.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“Believe me, the government of Borno state will spend its last Kobo in ensuring that our civilian JTF and hunters are strengthened.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“We cannot afford a situation whereby two persons (terrorists) come with motorcycle or vehicle, ransacking town and killing hundreds of people</em>,’’ he said.</p>

<p class="">The governor maintained that security was everybody’s business and not only a military affair.</p>

<p class="">He commended the military, particularly the army for their efforts so far in dealing with terrorists, noting that it was “<em>very difficult to deal with an enemy you do not see</em>.’’</p>

<p class="">“<em>People do not understand; it very difficult.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“Considering the land mass of Borno state, about 76, 000 kms; it is not easy</em>.’’</p>

<p class="">He pleaded that military operation should be followed with a stabilisation mechanism, saying “once an area has been liberated, there is the need for the government and military to work out modalities for reconstruction, rehabilitation and resettlement’’.</p>

<p class="">He added that this should be done with the support of the military and paramilitary organisations</p>

<p class="">“<em>Without this, an area liberated can be taken over by insurgents</em>.’’</p>

<p class="">The governor also pointed out that to achieve success in the fight against terrorism, the root causes of Boko Haram must be addressed.</p>

<p class="">He listed some of them as unemployment, endemic poverty, high illiteracy, poor socio-economic infrastructure and climate change.</p>

<p class="">“<em>Right now, over 80 per cent of our population (Borno), including the youth and able bodied men, are unemployed.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“The situation is catastrophic, and unless we address the root causes of these problems, I think we cannot make any meaningful progress</em>,’’ he said.</p>

<p class="">Zulum said that the mainstay of the state’s economy was agriculture but regretted that over 90 per cent of the population did not have access to farmland due insurgency.</p>

<p class="">“<em>The area under cultivation in the last 10 years is less than that of the last two years.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“We are getting some significant improvement. This year, 2019, we are also getting more significant improvement.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“One area that the people of Borno wish to collaborate with the military and the police is to have access to their farmland</em>,’’ he said.</p>

<p class="">Earlier, Buratai had congratulated the governor on his election and assured that the military was working out solution to insecurity in the state and the North-East.</p>

<p class="">Buratai also said that the military was moving into the stabilization phase in the region and pleaded for more support.</p>
