“Aborts your courageous mission” :- Gov. Zulum tells man planning to trek from Jigawa to Borno in his honor

Borno State Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum has honorably turned down a plan by a 35-year-old Usman Zubairu who wants to trek from Hadejia in Jigawa state to Maiduguri to honor him.

The governor made this known via his twitter handle when he saw the news of Zubairu trekking for his sake.

Recall that this is not the first time political supporters will be going overboard to celebrate the victory of their idol after an electoral victory.

A supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari trekked from Lagos to Abuja after the 2015 general elections won by Buhari.

Another supporter swam in the gutter mud after the declaration of Buhari as the winner of the 2019 presidential election in February.

Zubairu had also intended to show his admiration for Zulum and announced that he would be trekking from Jigawa to Maiduguri the Borno State capital. The report caught the attention of the governor and he urged the man to shelve the plan.

“Evening, everyone. I came across an interesting tweet indicating that a passionate brother, Usman Zubairu, has embarked on an adventurous trek from Jigawa to Maiduguri in my honour.

“I deeply appreciate Malam Usman’s daring support, I strongly appeal that he aborts his courageous mission. To me, he has reached Maiduguri already.

“I urge us to put Borno and the rest of Nigeria in our silent prayers. That divine way of support can be more effective,” Zulum tweeted.

Recalled that Usman Zubairu, the trekker, was yesterday in Damaturu, Yobe state capital en route to Maiduguri, Borno state.

See Zulum’s tweet:

No, thank you, brother Usman Zubairu.
