“They fasted, they prayed, and they did so many things — sacrificed — just because they wanted me to run.



“And therefore, they actualised their dream of voting me back to the senate on Saturday when they voted en masse, and to their credit, this is the highest number of votes against all the previous elections that I participated in.

“And therefore I want to take this opportunity to thank the Almighty Allah for his blessings and thank the people of Yobe north senatorial district for sticking with me, for believing in me, for trusting me to renew my mandate once again, for me to go back to the senate and the 10th national assembly to represent them and I thank them.
