In a special Sallah message, the Borno State Governor Kashim Shettima has urged the people of the state to remain steadfast in their resistance to terrorism and retain their optimism that the insurgency will soon be brought to an end. The Governor noted that the security agencies of the Federal Government with the support of youth volunteers, vigilantes and hunters being funded by the Borno State Government had remained gallant and dedicated in their determination to bring the security situation in the state to an end. He called on residents to renew their faith in the firm belief that the security challenges faced by the State “will Insha’Allah come to an end very soon and the emerging peace being witnessed by the State will endure with social and economic prosperity”. Shettima also appealed to residents to sustain their demonstration of empathy and support for internally displaced persons and to remain steadfast in their prayers and support for the continued success of his administration’s ongoing rebuilding of communities and restoration of livelihoods towards the safe and dignified re-settlement of displaced persons. He called on residents, especially internally displaced persons to support and be hospitable to humanitarian workers from within and outside Nigeria, stressing that humanitarian workers are in Borno to help those in need of food, medical attention, shelter and livelihood thereby sharing the burdens of federal and state governments.
