- According to the group, Zulum has shown so much support for non-indigenes in Borno and they plan to make his second term bid a reality
The Ohanaeze APC Support Group in collaboration with Solidarity of Youth for Peace and Development on Tuesday, August 2, flagged off the mobilisation of voters for the second term bid of Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno state and the 2023 presidential candidate for the ruling party.
Leadership reports that the group during the flag-off ceremony announced its members' support for the vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
They also pledge to actualise the Bola Tinubu/ Kashim Shettima ticket in the forthcoming 2023 presidential election.
Speaking at the Elkanemi Warriors Sports Centre in Maiduguri, Borno state, the coordinator of the APC support group, Ugochukwu Egwudike, said their decision to back Governor Zulum’s second term bid is a result of his detribalised posture in the provision of dividends of democracy.

Egwudike submitted that Governor Zulum has continued to provide free transportation for non-Borno indigenes during Christmas and New Year festivities.
According to Egwudike, the transport stipends avail the residents of an opportunity to celebrate the seasons with their loved ones.
“We are announcing our unflinching support for our competent and dynamic vice presidential candidate, Senator Kashim Shettima. Therefore, all hands must be on deck to actualise Governor Babagana Umara Zulum’s second term bid and the Tinubu/Kashim presidential ticket come 2023."
Also speaking, the governor of Borno state represented by Ali Bukar Dalori, APC's chairman in the state appreciated the efforts of community leaders who came together to support the party.
Dalori assured that the Tinubu/Kashim presidency being flagged by the ruling party would be fair to all Nigerians.
He urged various leaders of the communities to continue to support the party and promised that Governor Zulum would always treat every non-indigene equally.

Big men things: Atiku throws huge challenge to Bola Tinubu ahead of 2023 presidential election
Bola Tinubu had been challenged to take the hot seat and subject himself to a one-hour television interview like his opponents in the Peoples Democratic Party and the Labour Party.
This challenge to the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate was thrown to him by Atiku Abubakar.
Atiku's challenge to Tinubu is a sequel to the latter's comment that the PDP candidate is a pathological liar after the former's appearance in a TV interview where he said that the APC's national leader begged to be his running mate in 2007.
