Boko Haram Can’t Stop Elections In Northeast – Governors

The Governors of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states, the worst hit in Boko Haram attacks, say elections will hold in their states next month despite the security challenges posed by Boko Haram.

According to KSM News, the governors of Borno State Governor Kashim Shettima and his Yobe counterpart, Ibrahim Gaidam stated this while speaking to State House correspondents after a security meeting with President Jonathan at the presidential Villa, Abuja today January 6th.

The Governors argued that if elections could hold in troubled countries like Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, then the Northeast states shouldn’t be an exception. Then they requested the deployment of more troops to effectively manage the insurgency crisis being faced in their states.
