Senator Saraki gave this assurance in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State when he led a delegation of Senators, the first by a Senate President since the insurgency began six years ago, for an on-the-spot assessment of situation in the state that has been ravaged by Boko Haram insurgency.

Senator  Saraki, who arrived Maiduguri shortly after 12 noon in a Nigerian Air Force plane met with Borno State Governor, Alhaji Kashim Shettima and told him that the National Assembly will pass legislations to help restore normalcy to the North East zone.
