The Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima has said that he already wrote his will and he’s prepared to die with Borno people in order to end insurgency in the state.
The governor, who appeared on the TVC Big Talk Show said he shunned traveling to Mecca and stay with his people.
“This is because the insurgents were everywhere in the State. They had taken over about 22 local government areas in the state.
“We couldn’t abdicate with the people but the mere fact that you are on ground will give them the hope to say, ‘look, our leader did not run away’.
“Ordinarily there was the period of the year which was a period of political jamboree, when leaders go to Saudi Arabia to enjoy themselves, but I can’t go, I won’t go and I will never go.”
