    He commended Zulum for successes recorded in the area of security in Borno State and pointed out the cleanliness of Maiduguri the state capital.

    “I am happy with you, I commend your work, I have seen the cleanliness of the state,” Wike said.

    He charged the presidential hopeful and others like him to ensure they put the unity and peace of Nigeria above their personal interests.

    The Borno Governor submitted that regardless of party affiliation, everyone must work together to protect and strengthen Nigeria’s democracy.

    Meanwhile, the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Samson Ayokunle, has disclosed that the 2023 general election might not hold if the current insecurity in the country continues.

    The CAN president expressed fear that bandits and terrorists will overrun the country before the forthcoming elections if their activities are not checked.

    He, however, asked the Muhammadu Buhari-led government to expose those financing terrorism and insecurity in the country and bring them to book.
