Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State has asked a man to abort his plan to embark on a solidarity trekking from Jigawa State to Borno State.
DAILY NIGERIAN gathered that a young man who is in his 30s had perfected plans to embark on a solidarity trekking to Maiduguri to pay homage to the governor.
Reacting to the development via his personal twitter handle on Friday, Governor Zulum urged the “adventurous” man to, instead of trekking, pray for Borno State and the country at large.
“No, thank you, Brother Usman Zubairu.
“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,” Mr Zulum tweeted.
The governor, however, appreciated Mr Zubairu’s courage and passion to embark on this adventurous trek.
“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,” he stressed.
DAILY NIGERIAN reports that this trekking is becoming a trend as a man simply identified as Nura Aliyu Batsari, from Katsina State, had also trekked to Kano State to congratulate Governor Abdullahi Ganduje over his Supreme Court victory.
It was gathered that Mr Ganduje had given the trekker the sum of N500,000 and a Hajj slot and a brand new laptop computer.
