Insurgents recruiting more members, North East governors tell Buhari

State governors from the North-Eastern part of the country on Monday met with the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on the deteriorating security situation in the zone and appealed to him to address the causes without further delay.

They also lamented the rate at which more members are being recruited into the sect.

As one of the ways out, the governors recommended that more sophisticated equipment should be provided for the Nigeria Police Force in order to cover the manpower deficit they said they noticed in the nation’s military.

Borno State Governor, Prof Babagana Zulum, disclosed these to State House correspondents at the end of the meeting they had with Buhari inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting was held at a time the North East is witnessing a deteriorating security situation.

Penultimate Wednesday, Zulum’s convoy was attacked between Baga and Munguno while he was on a routine inspection.

The following day, multiple explosions from mortars fired by suspected Boko Haram members hit Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, leaving many injured.

Zulum, who was joined at the press briefing, by the Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, said the meeting with the President was a fallout of a meeting of the North East governors held in Maiduguri on Saturday.

He said the governors resolved on Saturday to meet Buhari with a view to highlighting the key challenges in the region, especially the issues of security, decaying infrastructure especially road projects, cases of oil exploration in the region, and the issues of enhancing river basin development in the region among others.

When asked to give further details of what transpired at the meeting concerning security, the governor said, “The governors of the region have commended the efforts of the Federal Government in securing the region.

“However, we told the President that there is the need for the Federal Government to address the causes of insurgency, which are not limited to endemic poverty and hunger among others.
