Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum has expressed optimism that the President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and VP-elect, Kashim Shettima, would support him in tackling the problems of the state.
Zulum made the remark while noting that he would miss President Muhammadu Buhari’s support in tackling the problems in the state.
Speaking in Maiduguri, Borno State, the governor said the victory of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the last election, was a relief to him.
According to Zulum: “Buhari has lamented that nobody is as supportive as it should be in addressing the problems faced in Borno State.
“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.”
