Malami’s governorship posters flood Kebbi

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has banned all his appointees from indulging in 2023 political campaigns, warning that any defaulters will be sanctioned.

Ortom, who handed down the order yesterday while briefing newsmen at the Government House, Makurdi, reiterated that he was not interested in the 2023 election for now.

According to him, campaigns for 2023 now are diversionary when his government still has two and a half years to go, warning that any of his appointees that must get involved in such campaigns, must first tender a resignation letter to him.


“I am not interested in any 2023 election for now, likewise to all appointees in my government. I decided to ban all campaigns. As of today, no appointee of government is allowed to campaign for 2023, and if any must do that, I demand a resignation letter from such a person,” he stated.

HOWEVER, governorship posters of the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, is everywhere in Birnin Kebbi, Kebbi State capital.

Our correspondents who visited some areas in Badariya, Bypass, Market area and Yauri Council of the state gathered that the people of Kebbi had decided to support the minister’s governorship ambition following his achievements across the 21 councils of the state.

Malami has reportedly empowered youths, the underprivileged, orphans and widows through his Kadimya Foundation, which was established five years ago to reduce poverty and support the masses across the country.
