Governor Zulum said that the constitution of the commission was in the exercise of powers conferred on him by section 2 (1) of the Commission of Enquiry Law Cap. 37, Law of Borno State, 1994.

He also commended the role of International Non-Governmental Organisations in restoring hope to traumatized people through various intervention programmes worth billions of naira.

However, Governor Zulum expressed concerns about the simulation saga involving ACTED.
