Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum has apologized to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar over a recent attack on his convoy during his campaign in Maiduguri.
Zulum Apologizes To Atiku
The governor issued the apology while addressing supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) during the inauguration of Chairmen, Secretaries and over 800 members of the Campaign Council at the Government House, Maiduguri.
Zulum vowed that the APC under his leadership will ensure that no opposition parties win any unit in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
He said it is disheartening that some people seeking elective positions on the platform of a dying PDP are now sneaking into Maiduguri with money in their possession, causing trouble in form of campaigns of calumny, forgetting that Borno is APC.
The governor, who declared that the APC is not afraid of any opposition party, apologized to Atiku whose convoy was attacked by hoodlums during his campaign in Maiduguri.
He said, “It is laughable when I learnt that some people who have stayed away from Borno in the last four years have started trooping in to seek our people’s mandate in the forthcoming coming general elections on the platforms of different opposition parties, particularly the dying PDP.
“I want to state that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC under my leadership will ensure that no opposition party win any unit in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
“In fact, it is disheartening that some people seeking elective positions on the platform of a dying Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in the state are now sneaking into Maiduguri with about N500, 000 or N600, 000 in their possession, causing trouble in form of campaigns of calumny against our progressive party, forgetting that Borno is APC.
“I want to say that APC is not afraid of any opposition party, considering the fact that the state Government under my able leadership in the last three years has done wonderfully well in the area of security, jobs creations, youths and women empowerment, reconstruction, rehabilitation and resettlement of millions of Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs back to their places of origin.
“However, I want to use this opportunity to apologise to former Vice President and PDP presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar whose convoy was attacked by yet-to-be identified hoodlums during Campaign in Maiduguri recently.”
KanyiDaily had recently reported how 74 people were injured and several vehicles vandalized during an attack on Atiku Abubakar’s convoy in Maiduguri.
