The CDS who threw the challenge when he paid a courtesy call on Governor Kashim Shettima at the Government House Maiduguri yesterday said that instead of them to channel their time and resource in productive ventures, they were wasting it on bomb making and acquiring weapons.
He said “if you feel so strong about your opinion that you must impose it on other people, then form a political party “. He stated that he is shocked at what is happening in Borno, because he knew Borno as a peaceful state in the North-East and the country at large.
