CSOs applaud Shettima for ‘immorality free society’
Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in Borno State yesterday commended Governor Kashim Shettima for fulfilling his promise to demolish structures in areas where drug abuses, prostitutions and communities are practiced in open.
Chairman of the Network of the CSOs in the state, Ambassador Ahmed Shehu, while briefing his members about the development, said though the demolition may not be a lasting solution, it’s a step in the right direction and urged stakeholders to support the government.
“We are all part of the society and we must play a part towards a decent society,” he said, explaining the vices taking place at the areas were beyond everyone’s imagination.
“We visited the joint and we found immorality at its peak. Girls as young as 12 were hiring rooms and soliciting for sex, drugs are taken and traded like groundnut, illicit and illegal deals going on there. It’s a real breeding ground for everything negative in part of the earth,” Ambassador Shehu said.
The Borno State government had through its Commissioner for Justice and Anthony General, Barr. Kaka Shehu Lawan, on Tuesday issued a 3-day demolition notice to the illegal cartels within Maiduguri metropolis and environs.
