Quotes

"We have been telling our politicians to stop trivialising and politicising security issues by narrowing it to ethnicity and religion. As long as politicians keep on narrowing issues of insecurity to Islam, Christianity, Hausa/Fulani, Yoruba or Ijaw, then it will be difficult to solve the problem”, he said."
"We all know what this is about, this is about consequences for the steps that I have taken, and this is something that was long overdue. I am surprised that it took them so long" the former Governor had told an international news agency
Maishanu in the statement simply declared: "This is to inform the general public that I have resigned my appointment as the Honourable Commissioner of Solid Minerals and Natural Resources in pursuit of my future endeavour. I have decided to channel my abilities to other life callings."
...Describing the attack, the local police commissioner said the bomber "detonated the bomb along with the person that tried to block him." Bauchi was not hurt, but 32 others have been confirmed dead at the scene
