Published by Guardian on Thu, 02 May 2013


Kano donates N20m to BornoGOVERNOR Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of Kano State has donated N20 million to the Borno State government to cushion the devastating effects of the Boko Haram insurgency, particularly the Baga crisis.Speaking yesterday in Maiduguri at the Government House to 'commiserate and condole' with the people and the Borno State government over the Baga carnage, Kwankwaso said the people of Borno and Kano stateshave been facing the challenge of insecurity to lives and property for many decades, until the four-year Boko Haram insurgency in the North.His words: 'In Kano State, we are facing the same insecurity challenge caused by the Boko Haram insurgents and we are working round the clock to overcome it in the North. I, therefore, on behalf of the Kano State government and its citizens, present a token of N20 million to cushion the devastating effects of the Baga and Bama crises that claimed many lives and property.'Kwankwaso noted that 'with the good leadership of the affected states in the North, we will be able to weather the storm of Boko Haram insurgency. The leadership of Shettima has gone a long way in restoring peace and unity in the state and the entire North.'He added that even before the Boko Haram insurgency of July 2009, there had been ethnic, religious and Sharia legal system crises in the region for many decades, in which many lives and property were lost.Governor Shettima, in his brief remarks, said: 'I am filled with tears of joy and brotherhood, because since the Boko Haram insurgencies at the border towns of Baga and Bama in Borno State, we have not got a dime from any government, be it federal, state or any individual, except from Governor Kwankwaso of Kano State and the people.'According to Shettima, 'Kwankwaso was the first governor to visit Borno over the recent attacks and killings at Baga and Bama, where many people, including security personnel, were killed and many houses, shops and market stalls torched.
