NIGERIA: Saboteurs Causing Rift Between Presidency, Shettima

Recent disagreements between the Presidency and the Borno State are caused by some unscrupulous elements who are bent on sabotaging ongoing military operations against the deadly Boko Haram insurgents, a coalition has alleged.
The Coalition, an umbrella of 150 clubs and associations in Borno State, made the allegation at a peaceful rally in Maiduguri yesterday, to condemn the deaths arising from intensified attacks by the Boko Haram.
Baba Gana Gambobe and Ifeanyi Chukwu, coordinator and secretary of the coalition, read a joint statement, calling on President Goodluck Jonathan to embrace Governor Shettima on the basis that the President stands to gain more when peace was restored in Borno since the provision of security rests on the Federal Government based on constitutional provisions.
