16 November 2016, 19:00

Yola - Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has declared that if he was the President of Nigeria, the Boko Haram insurgency would not have existed in the country.

Abubakar stated this in Yola on Tuesday at the distribution of relief materials to over 50 000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) at American University of Nigeria (AUN) drawn from all over IDPs camps across Adamawa State.

The distribution was part of programmes lined up to commemorate Atiku’s 70th birthday celebrations.
