Alhaji Goni, who made the appeal during the commissioning of the zonal office of the North East  Alliance  for Buhari 2019 in Maiduguri  said that the Federal Government has a plan and program in place  to take care of them.
“I am asking our children out there  to come back home and give peace a chance, as the federal government has a plan for you, so that you will be part of the rebuilding efforts in the state.   You are our children  whether you are Boko Haram or not, you should come back,  so that we will  rebuild our society, ” he said.
Speaking on why he recently  defected from PDP to APC, Goni said Buhari has done well more especially  in the areas of security,  fight against corruption  and the economy, adding that the people of the North East are living witnesses to the success of the counter insurgency  war in the area.
” ï came to APC  to support  the re-election  bid of President Buhari.  I, therefore, urge you to vote for Buhari, so that he will do more,”  the elder statesman  stated.
In his remarks,  Governor Kashim Shettima  thanked Goni, who was his opponent during the 2011 elections, as PDP candidate,  stressing that with Goni in APC this time around, there will be zero votes for PDP in Borno.
He urged the people  of Borno to come out en mass and vote for Buhari  and all APC candidates, stressing that Buhari deserved hundred percent votes in Borno.

In his welcome address,  the North East  Coordinator, for North East Alliance  for Buhari 2019, Hon. Kaka Bolori said with their defection,  PDP was dead in Borno,  as they were the founders of PDP in Borno.
