“I am donating this bus not because I want anything back but because I have a special interest in the wellbeing of Nigerians and to also show to the world that I am a man of my word. I promised to work for President Buhari and Alhaji Inuwa; this is the fulfilment of that promise and there is no going back.
“APC is our party and victory must be collectively sought. I am only contributing my quota for a cause I strongly believe is in the interest of Nigerians and Gombe state.
“The present APC administration has taken the fight against corruption to the looters, saved over $43 billion as foreign reserve and that is being projected to hit $60 billion in 2019 because the President is honest.
“In the face of the forthcoming elections, one would have expected the reserve to drop as usual, but there is a change in that regard.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said if elected president, his administration will not release the so-called repentant Boko Haram insurgents because they may return to target Nigerian military personnel.
The presidential aspirant in a statement on Saturday, January 12, by Paul Ibe, his media aide, said it made no military or practical sense to release hardened terrorists who had killed members of the military.
He commended the Borno Elders Forum for calling on President Buhari to stop the practice of releasing the so-called repentant insurgents.
