According to him, the ticket was a reward for the governor’s performance in office which had transformed the state to an enviable height in the country.

“Yobe is the number one home of APC in Nigeria, ” he said.

Sen. Ahamed Lawal, representing Yobe North District, who spoke earlier, commended the security agencies, especially the military for repelling insurgents attack on Damaturu.
