The NGF Chairman further emphasized that the Northern Governors Forum stands shoulder to shoulder with the President Muhammadu Buhari as he rallies the world towards defeating terror groups and their sponsors as well as the purveyors of their bizarre ideology which propagates sorrow, hatred and pain on innocent persons in the name of religion and others claims.
