Governor Babagana Umara Zulum has said he will ensure victory for the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Kashim Shettima in Borno State, saying Shettima’s benevolence must not be betrayed.
Zulum spoke when the wife of APC presidential candidate, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, led the APC women’s North East campaign team on a courtesy call on him in Maiduguri, on Saturday.
“I have no other alternative than to deliver the state to the Tinubu/Shettima presidential team and the entire APC. I will not let Kashin Shettima down,” he said.
Zulum revealed that he was lecturing at the University of Maiduguri when Kashim Shettima appointed him Rector of Ramat Polytechnic; after which he appointed him Commissioner for the Ministry of Reconstruction, Rehabilitation and Resettlement, and ensured that he succeeded him as the state governor.
“We shall work assiduously to deliver more than 95 per cent of the state to APC,” he said.
Also, the wife of the governor, Hajia Falmata Zulum, who spoke at the flag-off of the campaign rally, described Shettima as an asset to the country who set a phase for her husband to deliver the quality service that Borno and the country appreciate.
She said, “APC has done everything for the people of the North East by giving us the position of vice president. I appealed to everyone, especially women, to rally round support for Tinub/Shettima and APC to realize this ambition.”
