Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima has said that former President, Goodluck Jonathan treated residents of the state like distant cousins during his tenure.

Shettima made the comment at the 1st Annual Dialogue on Rebuilding Borno held on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 in Abuja, Daily Post reports.

“I don’t really know what would have happened to us if President Buhari did not come on board. The previous administration branded us as distant cousins. We were left to our fate,” he said.

Shettima had earlier said that Jonathan did not call him to discuss the 2014 Chibok abduction until 19 days after the girls had been taken.

“In our own case, Your Excellency, after the Chibok abduction of over 200 schoolgirls in April, 2014, it took 19 days for me to receive a call from the Presidency,” Shettima said while receiving former president, Olusegun Obasanjo at the Government House in Maiduguri.

Obasanjo had earlier criticized Jonathan for failing to act immediately the girls were kidnapped.
