“Apparently, the man has realized this and is doing everything possible to attract our media reactions, hoping to gain from Zulum’s God-given publicity that is both nationwide and global.
“The unknown governorship candidate (UGC) wants us to respond to his spurious allegations to make him popular."
He said on the surface, it would seem that the unknown governorship candidate wants to square up with the governor but the fact is nobody has ever heard of him.
He advised Zulum supporters to:
“Focus your energy and time towards continued highlighting of Zulum’s developmental activities that are touching lives."
According to Gusau, at any point when such a character brings up criticism that is not factual against the governor, his supporters who feel compelled to respond simply showcase videos and photos of relevant schools with evidence of locations.
