Represented by his Chief of Staff, Prof. Maxwell Gidado, Governor Fintiri opined that insurgency in the Northeast would end within the first term of the Presidency of any candidate of Northeastern extraction, because according to him, “he who wears the shoe, knows where it pinches.”

He said the former Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai (rtrd.) did his best in trying to bring the insurgency to the end but his effort only resulted in modest gains because the counter-insurgency efforts did not get 100 percent support required from the presidency.

According to him, since the Northeast is most affected by the insurgency, any president from the region would do anything to curb the menace.
