The Chairman of the forum of North East Governors, Professor Babagana Zulum has told security operatives to adopt new thinking in order to confront the hydra headed monster of insecurity facing the region.
Zulum made the call while speaking at the opening of the forums 4th meeting in Bauchi on Wednesday.
Professor Zulum who regretted the wanton destruction of lives and property across Nigeria stressed the need for synergy between security agencies and collaboration with Nigeria’s neighbours and foreign external support in the fight against terror.
He said the new leadership of the armed forces must also make efforts towards bridging the gaps in their new thinking of a workable security architecture.
The Chairman noted that the region is left with no option than to turn all boarding Institutions to day Schools.
Earlier in his address the host Governor, Senator Bala Mohammed stated that the meeting affords the Governors another opportunity to discuss the challenges of the region and appealed to the federal Government to be holistic in its approach to addressing the security situation in the country.
A statement by Humwashi Wonosikou, press secretary to governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri said, the meeting was attended by governor Babagana Zulum, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri and Inuwa Yahaya while Taraba and Yobe State governors were represented by their deputies.
