Federal Government team meets Borno stakeholders on how to end Boko Haram



The Federal Government has begun a stakeholders’ engagement to end security challenges in the land.

It is seeking an end to killings by Boko Haram insurgents and other groups undermining the nation’s peace and security.

Interior Minister Rauf Aregbesola, who kick-started a national summit on security in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, expressed the determination of the government to ensure that Nigerians become safe in any part of the country.

He urged Nigerians, particularly Borno State residents to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in its efforts at ending insurgency, which has made life unbearable for ordinary Nigerians.

The Minister said the summit was organised to tap from the wealth of experience of the Kanem Borno Empire, which secured it for 1,200 years, more than the Byzantine Empire or the Holy Roman Empire.
