Politics Travelling To Gwoza Takes More Than Courage – Governor Shettima -Leadership



Borno State governor Kashim Shettima has described his recent trip to Gwoza for the burial of the late Emir of Gwoza, Alhaji Shehu Idrisa Timta, who was killed by Boko Haram gunmen on Friday, as most petrifying. He said travelling through such a perilous route where insurgents attack at will on a daily basis demands more that courage.

“If I say I was not petrified travelling through that 135km of road to Gwoza, I would be lying because that road had been designated a no-go area for about two months now due to the incessant attacks and killings that occur there,” said Shettima. “But leadership requires courage and sacrifice. Courage, I believe, is not only about the absence of fear but the belief that there is something greater than that fear.”
