Stop insulting governors because of my performance – Zulum

The Borno State Governor Babagana Zulum has urged Nigerians to stop insulting his contemporaries because of his performance.

Speaking through his Special Adviser on Public Relations and Strategy Isa Gusau, the governor said he usually felt uncomfortable whenever people praised him for providing better leadership than other governors in the country.

The governor cautioned social media influencers and other Nigerians against comparing him with other governors in the country.

He said each state had its peculiarities, and every governor had its priorities for its people. He said his performance should not attract comparison and unhealthy competition.

He attributed his developmental strides to the exigencies occasioned by 12 years of insurgency in the state.

 Zulum said the crisis led to thousands of deaths and displaced about two million people with humanitarian needs. 

Quoting the World Bank’s Recovery and Peace-Building Assessment Report on the North-East, the governor said the state lost 956,453 private houses, representing 30 per cent of the total number of houses in the state, to attacks by the terrorists. 

In September 2020, he reportedly lost 15 soldiers and others on his convoy to the attackers.

He has rebuilt many communities destroyed by insurgents, restored damaged infrastructures and other amenities.

He has also resettled many internally-displaced persons in the state and has empowered them.

Because of his leadership approach, some pundits believe his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), may field him for a federal position in the next general elections.
