The Minister for Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said that agitation of rotation of power by the people of southern Borno is not only constitutional but apt, timely and will ensure justice and inclusiveness.
He also said democracy all over the world promotes justice and fairness.
Speaking at the maiden Southern Borno Leadership Summit organised by Southern Borno Movement for Rotation of Power in Maiduguri, Alhaji Mohammed said “democracy all over the world is anchored on promotion of justice, social and political inclusiveness.
The minister, who was represented by the Director-General, National Orientation Agency (NOA), Dr. Garba Abari, said the movement was on course and also in line with what was happening in Oyo, Osun, Gombe, Yobe among other states.
Borno State Governor, Alhaji  Kashim Shettima advised the people of southern Borno not to be confrontational in their demand for power shift.
The governor, represented by the Secretary of the State Government, Alhaji Jidda Shuwa, said that power shift will bring development to the state, as the zone is qualified and has the human resources to turn the fortunes of the state around.
Also speaking, the Senator representing Borno South Senatorial District, Senator Ali Ndume, called for unity among the people of Southern Borno, as without unity rotation of power will not be actualized.
Earlier, the chairman of the Southern Borno Movement for Rotation of Power (SBMROP), Engineer Ibrahim Usman, said since the inception of democratic rule in 1979 and 1999, the people of Northern and Central Borno have been ruling the state, stressing that for justice, equity and fairness it is time for Southern Borno to be given the opportunity to produce the governor.
In his goodwill message, a chieftain of the movement, Comrade Hamza Bukar, called on the people of Southern Borno to reject all candidates of parties that refuse to pick their flag-bearers from the zone.
