    How can people praise this government on Security. Borno, Yobe Adamawa know no peace since inception of insurgency till date, Relatively peaceful places like Zamfara, Katsina, Sokoto The whole North west is in the hand of bandits North central is no go area. Where is the achievements in Security. The most annoying is denial by government, or labeling anybody that talk true as unpatriotic. Who is unpatriotic?
