Zulum Runs Borno With Passion

By Yusuf Adamu

In the last one week, I have been receiving calls from friends and associates both within and outside the state. Some of these calls were even from Cameroon, Chad and Niger republic. Many of the callers wanted to know about the revolutionary act of governance being adopted by the Borno state governor, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum.

My response to some is that, Zulum is a grassroot personality, who never forgets where he is coming from. I told them, the governor, as an Engineer and Professor has humility governing his life. I told some that, he is a passionate personality and thus, runs Borno state with passion that is why his own style of leadership is uncommon looking at governance in other states across the country. I know that whatever I have to tell them may not have described the personality of the Borno state governor, because to my mind only a selfless personality with such power and authority would go down the level of the down trodden. We are seeing this for the first time in Borno and I think after he might have served the state for eight years, the man coming after him must tighten up to march his level of achievements going by what we are seeing on ground.

Recently, the governor was going round assessing the abandon industries and hotels of high class in the state. These industries, if put in proper use, Borno would have rose from the dust of poverty to a place of glory. We always say Borno will rise again, but how would the state rises if our once glorious hotels and industries remains in their continual calling since the time of the late Mohammed Goni of blessed memory.

I know that, at some point, some of these great assets try to roar back to live but suddenly went back into oblivion. That is why when the governor took steps to bring these hotels and industries back to live again, we look at his antecedent and the passion that drives him and we are certain that, this time it is going to be for good. I personally felt that, this is the time Borno is returning to its glorious past. My advice however, looking at the years of these industries, is that, the governor should ensure that, new technology is brought into play taking into consideration the years of some of the machines and their high consumption of power.

The Maiduguri International Hotel, which is also one of the state asset, the governor took assessment during his tour has been the pride of Borno until saboteurs help in putting it in its present state. In those days, this hotel is one of the highest revenue generation asset, however, it was poorly managed. This time around, the governor may want to involve some private partners, who are good in the management of such businesses for optimum profit. I believe this hotel along if managed very well, particularly with the numbers of INGOs in Borno can changed the tally in our revenue as a state.

While discussing with some stakeholders, I told them, the governor is a workaholic, who seemed to be working inline with his everyday briefing note. Some of the people working closely with him would tell you that, the governor hardly sleeps. I have observed that, he works almost 20 hours a day sometimes because while in the late hours you my be surprise to hear that, he is at some IDP camp trying to make those vulnerable people feels the presence of government. Just a week or so, he shocked everyone when he decided to move governance to Auno. This he is doing deliberately to give the people hope in the face of crises to put a sense in them that the government did not abandon them.

I called him, a welfare governor because unlike what is obtained in other states, where governors and civil servants or  governors and their people are living a cat and dog like situation. Zulum has bought both the lives of the civil servants and ordinary people on the street. I was having some discussion with my wife yesterday, when she received an alert for the payment of May, 2020 salary. Her expression about the man-Zulum tells me, the governor has followership of people, who are speaking about him from their heart. This is when some governor are saying that, they do not know whether they will be able to pay salary for the month of May! I think, if Zulum with the lean resources for a state like Borno can perform like this, then other governors must learn to take some lessons from Borno.

There was no report that, ongoing projects in the state are coming to halt because the government is giving palliative or paying salary, and or doing some of the things other governors are giving excuses as to what is bringing quarrel with their workers or people because of failed campaign promises.

Zulum has remained street with his people and always seek their involvement in any decision government is taking on behalf of the people. I believe this is true governance. The roar about covid-19 pandemic, is like becoming a past tense in Borno since the governor unlock the lockdown. This was a decision he took with the people of Borno state and everyone fully represented. Other states are now keying in the steps of Borno, but without such a passion, nothing would have been done that was done.

    First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to
    ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.

    I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
    Appreciate it!

    Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and
    I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a
    good platform.

    your writing. I’m confident, you’ve a huge readers’ base already!

  • August 10, 2021 at 2:38 am

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the
    hang of it!

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!

  • August 16, 2021 at 7:11 am

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the
    message home a little bit, but other than that,
    this is fantastic blog. An excellent read. I
    will definitely be back.

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
    A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer
    but looks great in Safari. Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?

  • September 1, 2021 at 12:34 pm

    Can I simply say what a comfort to find a person that actually knows what they’re talking about on the web.
    You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people have to read this and understand this side
    of your story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular because you surely possess the gift.

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform
    you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m
    looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Hello outstanding website! Does running a blog
    such as this require a great deal of work? I’ve very little
    expertise in programming however I had been hoping to
    start my own blog in the near future. Anyways, if you have any
    suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off topic however I just had to ask.
