Babagana Zulum, governor of Borno state, has called retired military generals and retired senior police officers of Borno origin to a strategic meeting on how to fight Boko Haram insurgency. 

The governor also extended the call to retired senior operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) and retired senior operatives from relevant paramilitary agencies.  

Zulum made the call on Sunday when he hosted meetings with Borno citizens working at different federal establishments in Abuja. 

The governor was particular about citizens who held operational positions in security. 


According to a statement by his media office, the meeting, which was held at the banquet hall of Kanem suites in Abuja, explored ways Borno citizens in the ranks of chief executives, permanent secretaries, directors and deputy directors at federal ministries, departments and agencies could contribute to addressing challenges of security, recovery and development of their home state.

The governor’s invitation to retired senior security personnel was in response to a comment by a retired brigadier general from Borno state, who at the meeting, offered to contribute with strategies that could help the government in the ongoing fight against Boko Haram.

The governor said he would like to meet retired senior security officers as soon as the meeting can take place at a suitable location.


“All of us coming together in trying to rebuild our state will not be something new. Our forefathers did the same thing in bringing back what is now Borno state, after turbulent times,” he said.  

“They fought to rebuild communities. We need to be united. Let’s forget about 2023 and unite for Borno’s sake. Each of us should see how he or she can contribute to our search for peace, to resettling our brothers and sisters that are internally displaced, to education, healthcare, jobs creating and generally our economic recovery and development.”
