Politics Borno Group Condemns Sheriff's N150million Gift to Boko Haram Victims



The League of Borno Professionals, a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO), has described the cash donation of N150 million by the former Governor, Ali Modu Sheriff, to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the state as diversionary.

The group made its position known in a statement signed by its President, Mr Pindar Bitrus and Vice President, Mrs Aisami Habib, in Maiduguri.

The League said "we see the purported donation by Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff to IDPs in Borno as diversionary and playing to the gallery. His action is a deliberate attempt to win social and political capital which he squandered in his eight years as governor.

"Sheriff never commiserated with our people over the Boko Haram crises in the last three years nor condemned the sect. His latest propaganda cannot dissuade our people from the call on the International Criminal Court to investigate him for his alleged role in funding the Boko Haram.

Question: motive aside, is the money helping people?

What would this NGO have the ex-governor do? Do the benefactors of the N150 million think of the money as 'diversionary' or are they thankful for it?
