Gov. Kashim Shettima of Borno on Tuesday said he named an estate after APC Leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in appreciation of his role in ensuring transparent primaries in the state APC chapter during the 2015 general elections.
Shettima was speaking in Maiduguri at the inauguration on Monday and Tuesday by Tinubu of development projects executed by his administration.
The projects included 432 houses, 13 primary and junior secondary schools as well as a fully furnished estate with 26 apartments in five blocks of three-storey buildings for medical doctors, named ‘Bola Tinubu Court’.
The governor recalled that his success in taking control of the Borno APC in 2015 was largely because Tinubu refused to support the game plan of a wealthy tyrant that fought hard to seize the Borno APC as his personal estate.
“For us in Borno State APC, I must confess, that we owe our political freedom and independence to not only our firmness but importantly, to the wisdom and sincerity of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
