According to Kashim Shettima, people who say that the Goodluck Jonathan administration was better than President Muhammadu Buhari’s government should be stoned like the devil.
Shettima is said to have made the statement on Wednesday, May 4, 2016, during the distribution of relief materials in Maiduguri, the state capital, ThisDay reports.
“The politicians who left us to our troubles in the last five years only to come back when peace has returned to the state to tell us that Jonathan’s administration was better than the present should be stoned just like the Satan is stoned at the Kaaba,” the governor said.
Shettima had earlier said that GEJ treated residents of Borno state like distant cousins during his frustrating tenure.
“I don’t really know what would have happened to us if President Buhari did not come on board. The previous administration branded us as distant cousins. We were left to our fate,” he said at the 1st Annual Dialogue on Rebuilding Borno held on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 in Abuja.
