The Northern Governors’ Forum (NGF) has given three months as the period in which the on-going war against Boko Haram terrorists should be won to avoid doing irreversible harm to the economy of the region.

“Boko Haram should be eliminated at the maximum of three months. That is the expectation of the Northern States from the Federal Government and the international community,” NGF Chairman and Niger State Governor, Dr. Babangida Aliyu told newsmen yesterday at an economic investment forum in Abuja aimed at “creating opportunities for economic prosperity and security in the northern states and the nation.”

Aliyu called for collaborative efforts in the fight against insurgency and spoke of the challenge of rebuilding the economy of the North after the war.

“We are under no illusion that achieving this will be easy, especially in a fast-changing information age,” he said. “We also believe that progress, of any kind, comes with a price. Expectedly, as life gets better, it certainly gets tougher, with emerging challenges and pressures that sometimes threaten to uproot communities and families from their established ways of life. We, however, believe we have a shared responsibility and morality as Governors of the Northern States to pursue programmes and policies that promote social justice, peace and security, which is the fundamental essence of governance.”
