Governor Babagana Zulum said he has accepted the calls by civil servants, clubs and associations to contest for a second term in office after receiving N50 million cheque to buy All Progressives Congress (APC) expression of interest and nomination forms.
The money was contributed by members of 150 clubs and associations under the auspices of Coalition for Zulum Good Governance Continuity Support 2023.
Reacting, Zulum said “I have answered your calls to re-contest and I count on God’s guidance.
“I saw what you did, particularly the contributions from individuals, ranging from N500 to N1000.
While listing some of the fulfilled promises he made during the last governorship election, he said that his administration would continue to accord priority to security.
According to him, his administration is aware that good governance will enhance development in the state.
He assured the groups of more empowerment programmes, adding that those whose members had yet to get interest-free loans from the government to boost their businesses would be considered, while those who had benefited would be considered for more support.
Thereafter, he called for sustained prayers for more peace and progress in the state and the nation in general.
