Borno - Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima, expressed his administration’s commitment to working with any political party to restore peace in the area.
Borno is one of the areas worst affected by the wave of terror, blamed on the Islamic extremist, Boko Haram sect, that has swept through the West African country in recent years.
Speaking during a courtesy visit by members of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), who visited the premier to show their solidarity with his administration to restore peace, Shettima urged leaders to emulate the past generation of politicians who worked together for the betterment of the country.
“Some decades ago Nigeria was more united than today. No part of the country can do without the other and I urge the proponents of dividing Nigeria to think twice, as Nigeria is one united nation with a common destiny,” he said.
Shettima, a member of the All Nigeria People's Party said peace was essential ingredient to the development of any society; therefore, his administration was ready to partner with any political party, group or individual to restore peace in the state.
Garba Barma, who led the APGA delegation, pledged to complement the Shettima administration to restore peace in the state.
“It is a good thing that the present administration of Kashim Shettima is working tirelessly to transform the state despite the security challenges he was made to inherit,” said Barma.
He called on other political parties to emulate APGA by joining hands with Governor Shettima to salvage the state.
APGA state chairman, Ishaku Ado said as “progressives” they will always support policies and programmes that will bring positive change to the state.
