Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, has stated that Arab countries have not supported the state in its fight against insurgency.
Zulum stated this while receiving Saleh Fheied Saleh, Palestinian ambassador to Nigeria on Tuesday, January 5.
He said despite sharing cultural and religious similarities with the Arab countries, only countries from the West have shown concern about the plight of the Borno people.
Zulum said the level of concern never came from Arab countries with whom millions of Borno people share the similarity in religion and culture.
Reacting to Zulum’s statement, the Palestinian ambassador informed Zulum of plans to support the Borno government in some areas of need.
Saleh added that among Borno people in Palestine, one Fatima Barnawi was once a minister and a police chief.
Borno and other parts of the northeast have been under attacks by insurgents in the last decade.
