Zulum also alleged sabotage in the prosecution of the war against insurgency in the northeast, stressing, ” the President needs to know the truth.”

“Let me also re-echo my previous position with respect to the insurgency in Borno State, I have said several times there is no doubt, the gravity of the insurgency cannot be compared with what had happened between 2011 – 2015.

“From 2015 to date, the President has done well, but the most important thing is, it’s good also to say the right thing.

“There is a sabotage in the system that will not allow the insurgency to end. The President has to know this important point.”
