Hon, Mai Mala Buni Speaks

Daily Hint   7/10/2018

Today the global trend is towards collective actions; expressed through democratic tenets and principles. And progressivism is the way to achieve a profound change in surmounting our challenges and restoring abundance to our people in the 21st century.

In this wise, our efforts since the creation of Yobe State on 27 August, 1991 we have continued to progress, foster unity, made efforts to eliminate obstacles on the way of our development as a steps towards making our contributions to advance the development of our state socially, politically, economically and in all fields. In spite of our recent security challenges, our efforts in making Yobe a home for all of us has never been seen to be relenting.

Yobe State, today, occupies an enviable position among the committee of states as a shining example of the fulfilled objectives of state creation to bring government closer to the people. We cherished the efforts of our founding fathers, leaders, our men and women of goodwill, youths upon which the future of our beloved Yobe and the country defended and still defends as a whole.

I wish to commend the present dynamic administration of His Excellency, Alh (Dr) Ibrahim Gaidam for its laudable development projects that transformed Yobe as a Pride of the Sahel. Its our collective responsibility to not only sustain but deepen the legacies for the benefit of all our people. It is our hope that we will continue to build on that and foster unity and diversity for greater Yobe State. Indeed, Yobe deserves the best.

As we inch towards the 2019 general elections, opportunity has been presented for us to elect new sets of leaders to pilot the affairs of our state. We have witnessed our primaries in a peaceful, transparent and rancour free manner. I am humbled and remained eternally grateful for our party executives, stakeholders and delegates for the massive mandate given to me as the governorship flag bearer of our great party APC 2019. I promised I will not fail. I have not fail and I will never fail Insha Allah.

What remain now is for all of us to come together as one indivisible family on the journey to take Yobe to greater heights.

Our political campaign would therefore be based on the politics of ideas, debate and accommodation. This is an important panacea for the sustenance of democracy and democratic governance.

I see before us great things to come in our common desire to build a Yobe of our collective dreams and aspirations.

We pray for the guidance of the Almighty Allah and seek for his protection and guidance in this daunting task.

Thank you and God bless you all.

APC Governorship Candidate Yobe 2019
