The All Progressives Congress (APC) has praised the Borno State Governor, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, for giving priority to the welfare of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).
National Secretary of the APC, Alhaji Mai Mala Buni, gave the commendation on Sunday in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
Buni said that the governor did not abandon his people, even when about 22 of its councils were under the Boko Haram siege.
He noted that despite the economic challenges making some states unable to pay workers, Shettima continued to pay workers’ entitlements when due.
The APC scribe also called on Nigerians to shun corruption and stand with President Muhammadu Buhari as he strives to pull the country out of its present woes.
