“I will reciprocate Shettima’s benevolence to me – Zulum”
Borno State Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum, has vowed to deliver the state to the APC in reciprocation to its vice presidential candidate, Kashim Shettima’s political benevolence to him.
Zulum was speaking in Maiduguri, on Saturday, December 10, when Senator Oluremi Tinubu led the APC women’s wing presidential campaign team on a courtesy call on him.
Tinubu’s wife led the team to the flag-off of the North-East APC Women’s Wing presidential electioneering campaigns in Maiduguri.
“I have no other alternative than to deliver the state to the presidential team and the entire APC,” he declared, stating, “I will not let him (Kashim Shettima) down.”
He recalled how, while he was lecturing at the University of Maiduguri, the then Governor Kashim Shettima appointed him Rector of the State Polytechnic; after which he appointed him commissioner in his cabinet, and then picked him to succeed him.
“We shall work assiduously to deliver more than 95 per cent of the state to APC,” the governor assured.
He, however, urged the Tinubu presidential team to accord greater support to the empowerment of North-East women, especially in education and gender development.
At the flag-off of the electioneering campaigns, Senator Oluremi Tinubu and the wife of the APC vice presidential candidate, Nana Kashim Shettima, promised to work together to accelerate girlchild education, an upscale charity for the vulnerable population and provide employment to the youth.
