Governor Zulum said, in the area of security they were able to achieve a solid level of success.
He said, “The director of DSS is here and i don’t think we have communicated on emerging security issues in the last 2 or 3 months.
“Our first and second year in office we communicate up to 20 times some times in the night on Boko haram crossing Minok, Baga, and other places, that has been the climax of our discussion, but we thank God we no longer have such discussions”.
Zulum also said, ” it has never been easy working with me, we fought many atimes but i meant well, especially with the security agencies but now we all can all see light at the tunel. All this couldn’t be achieved without the commitment and professionalism of our military personnel and the para- military we remain enternally greatful.
