The Governor of Borno State Babagana Umara Zulum on Thursday led citizens to celebrate the Shehu of Borno, Alhaji Abubakar Ibn Umar Garbai Al-Amin Elkanemi, as he marked 13th year on the throne, since March 2009.
In a statement by his spokesman, Malam Isa Gusau, the Governor said that the humility and modesty of the Shehu has made his anniversary to be less noticed and less celebrated across the country.
Governor Zulum said that the Shehu’s office is the permanent symbol of Borno and this symbol should be the pride as sons and daughters of the state. Therefore it is ought to be celebrated on annual basis.
He prays that Allah continues to strengthen him in sound health, in his abiding faith, in wisdom and selfless leadership.
