The Governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum, says the people of the state have not lost hope in President Muhammadu Buhari.
The governor said this in reaction to the president’s visit to the state on Wednesday.
Buhari had visited the state to condole with the people over the Boko Haram attack which led to the loss of 30 lives in Auno, a community near Maiduguri.
However, some of the people who lined the streets of Maiduguri as the president’s convoy moved in, booed Buhari.
But according to presidential spokesman, had said those who booed Buhari were paid.
But in a statement by Isa Gusau, his spokesman, Zulum said the president’s visit showed he cared about the people of Borno.
“Mr President, sir, your empathy for the good people of Borno state has never been with the slightest doubt. In fact, it has been so obvious. Your trip to Maiduguri on Wednesday, straight from an international engagement strongly reinforced what we already know of your compassion for the people of Borno,” he said.
