A Yobe governorship aspirant on the platform of ruling All Progressives Congress, Ibrahim Bomai, on Thursday purchased a governorship nomination and expression of interest forms at the APC national secretariat.
Mr Bomai, a retired civil servant, was accompanied by hundreds of supporters, including some groups from the three senatorial districts of Zone A, B, and C, who paid for his nomination form.
Upon presentation of the necessary documentation Mr Bomai was issued nomination form package.
Speaking after purchase of nomination form, Mr Bomai expressed gratitude to Allah and his teeming supporters for standing by him towards actualisation of his governorship dream.
“Today is just a major starting point of our effort to make our state Yobe great again. I thank you all my supporters for putting your resources together to purchase this form for me. This goes to show your willingness to support my aspiration to move our dear state to the next level of development,” he said.
Mr Bomai also assured his supporters that he will justify the confidence reposed in him by making sure that Yobe State takes a new direction that will prioritize education, youth development, empowerment, provision of employment opportunities, agriculture and rural development.
He added that he joined the race for Yobe governorship out of the desire to change people’s lives and move the state forward.
Mr Bomai then tasked his coordinators in the three senatorial districts to work hard and mobilize people to ensure the success of APC at all levels of election.
