“The way he is campaigning for Tinubu that is how we are campaigning for our candidate. We will shock them, we will make them understand that this country belongs to nobody, likewise the North.” Bafarawa said.

 

The former governor noted that youngsters who reason well in their youthful exuberance are better than someone who is 100 years if we are to consider age.

 

“He is talking about being 63, doesn’t he see that there are still elders left in the North? For us, we see that these comments are lacking in responsibility.
