Northern Governors Condemn Attack On Prof. Zulum

Chairman Northern Governor’s Forum of Plateau State, Mr Simon Lalong

Following the footfalls of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the Northern Governors Forum (NGF) has condemned the recent attack on the convoy of one of its members, Prof Babagana Zulum, the Governor Borno State, describing the act as callous and reprehensible.

The Chairman of NGF and Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, in a statement yesterday, described the attack on Zulum, who was on his way to Baga town in Kukawa Local Government Area to personally distribute relief materials to internally displaced persons for the Sallah celebrations, as another desperate attempt by criminal elements to sabotage the efforts of the governor towards reducing the suffering of vulnerable persons that have been traumatised by terrorists.

Lalong, in the statement said: “This regrettable attack shows the desperation by enemies of peace and humanity at large to jeopardise all efforts, over the years, towards making life easier for victims of violence in the state. The Northern Governors Forum strongly condemns this attack and stands with Governor Zulum who has demonstrated courage in personally reaching out to people in need despite the dangers. We urge him not to be deterred as he keeps working with security agencies to protect the lives and properties of the people.”
