The Governor of Borno State, Babagana Umara Zulum, has vowed to deliver the state to the All Progressive Congress come 2023, in reciprocation to the party’s vice presidential candidate, Kashim Shettima’s political benevolence to him.
Zulum made this vow in Maiduguri, on Saturday, during the Senator Oluremi Tinubu led APC women’s wing presidential campaign in Borno.
Oluremi led the team to the flag-off of the North-Eastern APC Women’s Wing presidential electioneering campaigns in the state capital and visited the governor.
Zulum said, “I have no other alternative than to deliver the state to the Tinubu/Shettima presidential team and the entire APC, I will not let him (Kashim Shettima) down.
“We shall work assiduously to deliver more than 95 per cent of the state to APC.”
The governor recalled how, while he was lecturing at the University of Maiduguri, the then Governor, Kashim Shettima, appointed him as the Rector of the State Polytechnic; and then as a commissioner in his cabinet, before picking Zulum to succeed him.
