By Francis Okoye

The All Progressives Congress ( APC ) , Borno state Chapter has commended the state Governor, Babagana Zulum for the execution of over 100 people oriented solid capital projects in the first one year of his second tenure in office.

The state’s party Chairman of APC , Hon. Ayuba Bello made the commendation on Tuesday in Maiduguri in an interview with Journalists on the Governor’s performance ahead of the one year anniversary of his second term in office coming up on 29th of May, 2024.

Hon. Bello who is on record the first ruling APC Chairman to be elected from the minority southern part of Borno state since the inception of democracy, added that the popularity of Governor Zulum across the country is based on his hardwork, respect for the poor, commitment and high sense of responsibility towards governance.

He said even if one is from the opposition party, with humility and maturity, such person would agree that Zulum’s administration has performed greatly in the past one year since his projects are seen on ground.

The state party Chairman said,” As far as Iam concerned and the APC Chairman in Borno state is concerned, if you ask me to rate the performance of his Excellency for the past one year, it is exemplary, he has excelled in infrastructural performance.

” When you go round the country, you hardly find a Governor, who had done credibly well in terms of infrastructural development like Zulum’s administration. If somebody can carry out over 100 people oriented solid capital projects life on ground, honestly speaking, he deserve commendation.

” Even if you are not in APC, if you humility and maturity of mind, you would agree with me that this person has done greatly well. When you go round to the 27 local government areas of the state with exception of Guzamala, you will identify 10 to 20 capital projects that were executed by Governor Zulum.

” And they are people oriented projects, minor projects such as drilling of boreholes are not even counted. We are very proud of him, as a party, we are solidly behind him.”

On his election as chairman of the party from the minority southern part of Borno being the first in history, he said the party did it to balance the equation of leadership and giving the other side of the state a sense of belonging.

He said he enjoys followership and loyalty from all party members across the state, adding that structure put in place which is visible across the 27 local government areas of the state is reason the party would continue to dominate power in every election year.

By: Bodunrin Kayode

A Plateau elder Ambassador Yahaya Kwande has described the just concluded re-run election into the national assembly as a Triumph of Democracy.

In a release titled Congratulations to the Winners of Plateau State Bye Elections of February 3, 2024, he noted that the entire exercise was a victory to the people of the state.

“With great joy and profound gratitude, I extend my heartfelt congratulations to the newly elected Senator, (Plateau North Senatorial District), Prince Pam Mwadkwon Dachungyang, and the Member of the House of Representatives, (Jos North/Bassa Constituency), Hon. Daniel Asama, on their resounding victory in the recently concluded bye election held in Plateau State.

“Your triumph is a testament to the true spirit of democracy and the unwavering support of the people.

“I have no doubt that both Prince Pam Mwadkon and Hon.

We can revive this legacy by nurturing an environment that exudes peace, openness, and security for all. Together, we can restore Plateau State as a beacon of democratic excellence.

I extend my deepest appreciation to all who peacefully participated in the bye election, be it as candidates or enthusiastic supporters.
