FROM LEFT: GOV. MUKHTAR YERO OF KADUNA STATE; GOV. BABANGIDA ALIYU OF NIGER AND DEPUTY GOVERNOR OF KATSINA STATE, ALHAJI ABDULLAHI FASKERE, AT THE NORTHERN GOVERNORS FORUM MEETING IN KADUNA LAST MONTH (17/2/14).

Governors of the 19 northern states under the aegis of Northern States Governors Forum (NSGF) yesterday urged inhabitants of the troubled states of the North East region of the country not to lose hope over the renewed attacks on them by members of Boko Haram.

The Forum predicted that the end to the insurgency, senseless killing and unwanton destruction was in sight.

The Forum, through its Chairman, who is also Governor of Niger State, Dr Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu, called on all stakeholders to continue to pray to God to end the scourge of what they described as “senseless killing of defenseless citizens”.

Reacting to Saturday’s explosions which killed several persons at the heavily populated Ngomari-Bulumkutu area of Maiduguri, Borno State in a statement by Aliyu’s spokesman, Malam Danladi Ndayebo, the Forum pleaded with the perpetrators of the dastardly act to lay down their arms and embrace dialogue.

The statement reads: “The Northern States Governors Forum (NSGF) condemns the murderous terrorist attack which killed several persons at the heavily populated Ngomari-Bulumkutu area of Maiduguri, Borno State.

“The forum deeply regrets this utterly heinous descent to new depths of terror by the perpetrators at a time when security agencies are doing their best to put an end to the scourge of senseless killing of defenceless citizens”.

The Forum then urged members of the dreaded Boko Haram sect to embrace dialogue, saying “it is the surest way to resolve grievances is through dialogue and not violence”.

The Forum commiserated with the families of those killed or injured during the blast and reiterated its call on all security agencies to re-double their efforts in the discharge of their responsibilities of protecting the lives and property of the citizens.

  1. What measures have they put in place to prevent future occurence. Nigerians are not just interested in verbal promises. The inhabitants of the area are defenceless and as such the insurgents kill them at will and easily. Be proactive in your approach.
