THE former presidential candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and ex-Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) chairman, Nuhu Ribadu, at the weekend, commended Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State for developmental strides despite security challenges posed by the Boko Haram insurgency.

Speaking at Government House, Maiduguri, during his visit to the governor, Ribadu, who was in the state to commiserate with the government, the Shehu of Borno and people of the state over the prolonged crisis, told newsmen that he is impressed with the provision of basic needs, like roads, water, education and healthcare, despite a three-year security challenge.

Ribadu said: “I’m happy with what I have seen here. In fact, I was not expecting to see the government doing much, judging from the security challenges. But something is happening in Borno, apart from the Boko Haram crisis. If a government does all these things, you will see the reaction of the people. And I believe the security challenge will surely be over.

“All that our people are looking for are good hospitals, roads, water and education. They aren’t expecting anything more than that. But it is unfortunate that over the years, most of our leaders were concerned about themselves at the detriment of the people.

Ribadu also said Nigerians need pragmatic leaders that would change their living conditions and standards, urging the governor not to relent in his efforts.

Responding, Shettima described the former anti-corruption boss as an upright person known for his courage internationally.
