According to him, it is a hard fact that President Muhammadu Buhari must know that “some forces attempt to frustrate the Buhari government’s effort to end terrorism.

“The system contains sabotage that won’t allow terrorists to stop operating in the region.

“Let me also re-echo my previous position with respect to the level of insurgency in Borno State, I earlier said that the gravity of the insurgency cannot be compared with what has happened between 2011 to 2015, and 2015 to date. Yes, it’s true. The President has done well.

“But there’s sabotage in the system that will not allow insurgency to end; the President has to know this very important point.
“When he came to Maiduguri two months ago, I said so because between 2011 to 2015, at a time, almost about 22 LGAs were under the insurgents.”

He lamented at the difficulty Borno citizens are experiencing, noting that one out of the four roads that lead to Maiduguri, the state capital, was functional.
