The Yobe State governor, Ibrahim Gaidam has accused the opposition political parties of perpetuating the spate of insecurity in the state.


The governor, who disclosed this during a visit to some of the areas affected by a recent violence in the state, said his political enemies want to destabilize his administration.

“I don’t know who these people are. They could either be enemies within and outside us or other kind of criminals like Boko Haram,” Mr Gaidam said.

He described as barbaric the intentions of those responsible for the violence and destruction saying that his government totally condemn the act.

Mr Gaidam said he has recorded over 50 per cent of his campaign promises and he hopes to make it a hundred per cent by the end of his tenure in 2015.

He alleged that the opposition is not happy with his achievements in the state and are doing everything possible to destroy his successes.

“We are beginning to understand that there are enemies within and outside us who does not want us to progress,” the governor said.

He urged the people of the state to join hands with him in the quest for peace and development in the state.
