I will talk when the time comes
Believing that no one knows the future, Mohammed, in a post shared on Facebook, said he may not live long enough to run for a second term in office or even witness the next presidential election come 2023.
"By the grace of God, I have become governor with or without them and of course, I will live my time allotted to me by Allah. I may go for a second term, I may not even live to that time; I may go for the presidency, there is nothing they can do. I know what they are doing.
“Those Abuja politicians are not doing anything for us other than bringing mischief. I know some leaders of the state who are busy bringing criminals to the state. I will talk when the time comes. We will prove tough but certainly, we are not afraid of them.”
