The news is that in Borno state, all the warehouses of the palliatives have long been emptied and promptly distributed to the needy and other vulnerable citizens.

The Governor, Professor Zulum has wasted no time in given orders that the goods be given out through a modality that had been used overtime in different platforms on IDPs all around the states.

Prof. Aliyu Abdullahi Jibia said President Muhammadu Buhari had made a mistake in accepting that he was being called a good man.

Prof. Aliyu Abdullahi Jibia, the P.R.P candidate for governor of Katsina State, made the announcement on his Facebook account.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has made a big mistake by accepting to be called an honest man, and today he has been denied by God, because God is truthful.

“After all, in his words he shows that he is the most talented person in the world, while God is the Expert!

In the same way, Buhari criticized everyone’s work, and then God made him tired too!

Then he showed the Southerners the full Love, forgetting that the Southerners were not experienced!

Finally, whose city is it?

As long as Buhari does not repent to God, despite his failures, and admit that he made a mistake, and seek God’s help, he will never succeed again, except to reap losses!

I Aliyu Abdullahi Jibia, by God willing I will continue to inform him this, until the end of my life, until he changes!

I will do this, because with my gums this government had been set.
