… Since 2019, I prayed Shettima becomes VP
By Solomon Josiah, Maiduguri
Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, has indicated that while he will seriously miss the huge support he got from President Muhammadu Buhari, he is highly relieved that the combination of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Senator Kashim are the ones stepping in.
Zulum described the APC’s victory in the February 25th Presidential elections as the greatest relief to him and his administration.
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”.
Governor Zulum had recently during his reelection victory speech, described President Buhari as his greatest pillar in nearly four years of his first term that will end next Month. Zulum said Buhari gave him incredible support by his relentless fight against Boko Haram and numerous humanitarian and developmental interventions to Borno State.
