"I came to update the President on the efforts made by the Borno State government in guaranteeing the return of internally displaced individuals to their homes," Zulum said of his visit to Buhari. "So far, so good," he said. "The Borno State Government has started well, and terms have been agreed upon to ensure the closure of all internally displaced persons' camps within Maiduguri metropolis by December 31, 2021."

In coordination with the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Zulum stated that procedures have been made for the safe repatriation of displaced refugees currently live in neighboring Niger and Cameroun Republics. The Governor praised the nation's security agencies for their assistance and efforts in restoring peace to the state's troublesome local government districts.

"To this end, the Nigerian military is assisting the government of Borno State in every way possible." He added, "I am also delighted to inform you that the Chief of Naval Staff has ensured the return of Naval Base to Baga last month."
