Borno State Governor Babagana Umara Zulum has expressed gratitude to many of his promoters on social media platforms.
But he enjoined some of them to stop comparing his performance with those of other governors since all states have their peculiarities.
Professor Zulum’s Adviser on Public Relations and Strategy, Malam Isa Gusau, delivered the governor’s appeal in a statement yesterday.
“While I am enormously grateful for all the support and promotions, I have, in recent days, received messages forwarded to me in which our work-in-progress in Borno State is being compared with some other states, and in some cases, with insults.
“The fact is that I feel extremely uncomfortable any time I am being negatively compared with any governor, especially if anyone of those making the comparisons fall into any of the social media groups associated with us. I consider such comparisons unhealthy.
“Moreover, we are not in a competition. The truth is that all of the 36 states have their peculiarities and priorities, depending on developmental plans and the needs of societies.
“In Borno’s case, we have to be desperate in our recovery efforts because we have been faced with 12 years of war, resulting in thousands of deaths and displacement of about 2 million people with humanitarian needs.
