He further stated that the blessings of Governor Gaidam led to his emergence as All Progressives Congress (APC) National Secretary for two consecutive terms.
According to him: “I never sought to become governor of Yobe state, but Allah made it possible. We saw challenges from the opposition party in 2015 but God gave us victory and today am the governor-elect”.
“I extend hands of fellowship to every one of you to join hands with
me and contribute meaningfully to the development of our state.”

up-to-date in the payment of salaries, pension and gratuity without
loan from any financial institution, which indicated that the governor has
been prudent in spending.

governor after the demise of former Boss Mamman B. Ali of the blessed memory.
