According to The Nation, he stated this during a campaign rally in Gombe on Monday.
He stated that the 2023 presidential poll would be an opportunity for Gombe residents to produce another Balewa.
He said: “Many of you were not born the time the late Prime Minister, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, was in office. You now have another opportunity to produce another Abubakar Tafawa Balewa in me. Don’t you want another Tafawa Balewa in the Northeast?
“This can only be actualised by voting PDP. And here I am, the one that will give you the opportunity to have another Tafawa Balewa.”
If elected president in 2023, the PDP candidate promised to assist business owners in establishing industries that would provide jobs for youth.
