Borno State Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum, has indicated that while he will seriously miss the huge support he got from President Muhammadu Buhari, he is highly relieved that the government of Bola Tinubu and Senator Kashim are the ones stepping in.
Governor Zulum spoke on Friday when he hosted the Vice President-elect, Kashim Shettima to a Sallah lunch at the Government House in Maiduguri.
“It is one of my greatest joys that here today, HE Senator Kashim Shettima is sitting in our midst as the Vice President-elect of the Federal Republic of Nigeria waiting to be sworn in. It has been one of my prayers since I was sworn in as governor in 2019.”
“On a different occasion, President Buhari has lamented that nobody is as supportive as it should be in addressing the problems faced in Borno State. It is true that this has been one of my nightmares. Insha Allah in the next four years to come I have with me a brother, and indeed a boss that will support me and support the government and people of Borno State. We have incoming President Bola Tinubu who dearly loves Borno State and shares our pains”.
