He said: “Some of you saw me last week, going round to meet former ministers, senators, and other leaders to discuss this matter. But I have to consult traditional rulers and Ulamas too because I need their support.”

The Chairman of the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) in the state, Adamu Dimis, said the group endorsed the governor because of the numerous projects he has executed in the state in the last few years.
