Governor Zulum lists six things he believes the federal government can do to end the Boko Haram war.
The Governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum, has recommended the recruitment of foreign mercenaries by the federal government to help in ending the Boko Haram war.
He said previous administration of Goodluck Jonathan utilised foreign mercenaries including South Africans against Boko Haram and the mercenaries have contributed to the successes the military recorded in the few weeks leading to the 2015 general election.
He added that the Buhari administration, however promise to equip and empower the Nigerian military to defeat the insurgents.
Zulum made his suggestion when he received a federal government delegation that visited the state to commiserate with the people of Borno over the Saturday killing of 43 farmers by suspected members of Boko Haram.
He urged the federal government to recruit youth in Military and paramilitary services, engage the services of immediate neighbours especially the government of Chad, Cameroon and Niger Republic, in clearing the remnants of Boko Haram hiding in the shores of the Lake Chad and Clearing Sambisa forest
