The Borno State governor, Babagana Zulum, has said that it would take more than just the military approach to be able to defeat the insurgency in the Northeast region of the country.

Speaking at the State House after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, the governor canvassed job creation for the youth of the area.

According to the governor, it would require a political solution to end what he called “madness,” afflicting the state, adding that the kinetic measures currently being applied would not be enough to solve the security problems.

He called for the creation of jobs for the youth and the provision of an enabling environment for citizens to return to their homes to resume their normal lives.

The governor said the youth of the state must be empowered by all levels of government to be able to live a meaningful life.

He also disclosed that his administration had resettled more than 100,000 internally displaced persons (IDP) are back to their homes in the state.
