Mr Zulum, who spoke to State House Correspondents after the meeting, said he was in the state House to brief the president on the recent military action against Boko Haram by Chadian soldiers on the shores of Lake Chad and its implications on Nigeria’s National Security.

Mr Zulum quoted the president to have promised to take more decisive and proactive measures towards ensuring that the Boko Haram menace in parts of the country is totally eliminated for sustainable peace and development.
“After critically analyzing the situation, we both expressed the belief that time has come to once and for all to put an end the senseless acts of terror by Boko Haram and other criminal elements operating in the region,” he said
The governor said he also briefed President Buhari on his administration’s efforts at containing the ravaging Coronavirus in Borno.
NAN reports that Borno has so far not recorded a single case of Coronavirus in the state.
President Buhari said time has come to put a final stop to the activities of the terrorists and promised a proactive action.
