Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno state has been described as a deliberate supporter of the Nigerian Army in the fight against Boko Haram.
The Acting General Officer Commanding 7 Division of the Nigerian Army, Major General A. Eyitayo, gave the commendation on Sunday when he received the governor who was at the division to celebrate the GOC’s promotion to the rank of a Major General.
Eyitayo noted that Zulum was there as part of his usual support to the military operating in Borno State.
The General also acknowledged that on many occasions and without any request, Governor Zulum comes to the aid of the army through logistics and other assistance packages to support and encourage the fighting spirit of the soldiers.
While congratulating the GOC and other newly promoted officers, Governor Zulum said his administration’s continued support was in recognition of the peace-building role of the military leading to successful resettlement of many communities across the state.
