Politics Chibok Abduction: Governor Shettima Stays Away from APC Convention -Daily Post



Governor Kashim Shettima yesterday stayed away from the Eagle Square, venue of All Progressive Party’s national convention as a mark of respect to victims of series of Boko Haram attacks in Borno State that include families of those killed across the State as well as to honour parents who have remained in despair following the abduction of about 200 schoolgirls at Government Secondary School, Chibok on April 14, 2014 by Boko Haram members.

Special Adviser to Shettima on Communications, Isa Gusau explained that the Governor said while the convention was a legitimate democratic process that mustn’t be stopped in order to defy insurgents whose desire is to suspend and replace liberal and constitutional democracy ‎with violent doctrines that has no religious backing, he opted to stay away from convention so as not offend the sensibilities of victims of the serial attacks in Borno State.

The Governor sent in his deputy, Zannah Umar Mustapha to represent him at the convention and he fully shares the aspirations and vision of the APC which is to transform Nigeria.
