According to General Minimah  ‘Yobe and Adamawa have been liberated completely and we look forward to the restatement of the structures of government and governance. I am sure you know that in Borno state out of the 27 local governments, we have 3 local governments remaining , Abadam,Kalabaldi and Gwoza and we are optimistic that with time we will liberate those local governments.

When asked if elections could hold in those areas, Minimah said he was not competent to speak on that. He said INEC will to re assess the areas liberated. ‘It is our wish and we pray God gives that to us, but war is war. War sometimes is not fought on some platform of permutations’, he said.
