2023: Zulum, Others Receive Certificates Of Return From INEC

The governor of Borno State, Babagana Umara Zulum, his Deputy, Umar Kadafur, as well as 28 members of the state's House of Assembly, have received their certificates of return from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The issuance of the certificates took place on Thursday at the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Hall in Maiduguri, the state's capital.

Presenting the certificates, the INEC National Commissioner in charge of Borno, Yobe and Bauchi states, Major General Modibbo Alkali (rtd), stated that the commission's mission was to be independent in ensuring free, fair and acceptable elections for democracy to prosper in the country. 

While noting that the commission is not partisan to any political party, he explained that the issuance of the certificates was in line with the provisions of Nigeria's 1999 Constitution.

He added that by the provision of the constitution, INEC is mandated to issue the certificates within 14 days after the elections. 

Speaking after receiving his certificate, Zulum said he has accepted the mandate to serve the people of Borno state for the second time. 

While dedicating his victory to God, Zulum pledged to fulfil his campaign promises and consolidate the achievements recorded in his first tenure.

“I commit to making sure, Insha Allah, we will work a hundred per cent for the benefits of the citizens, natives, residents and good people of Borno state regardless of their ethnic or religious persuasion," he added.
