Former presidential liaison officer to National Assembly, Matawalle Kashim Ibrahim Imam, has promised to fulfill all the pledges he made including assistance for the reconstruction of Borno State with a personal donation of N1billion for the reconstruction and rehabilitation of communities destroyed by Boko Haram in addition to resettlement of displaced persons.

Imam  also pledged to design and construct Central Mosques in Bama and Gwoza towns if given Mandate to govern Borno come 2019 election.

This is even as the Mutawalle Borno condemned the just concluded Borno APC gubernatorial primary election which 12 out of the 21 that contested the primary protested and called for its cancellation.

He said the condemnation came on the heels of irregularities that were alleged to have characterised the said party primary and alleged to have been hijacked by the state governor by endorsing and anointing his candidate ahead of the election.

Addressing journalists  at a press conference yesterday in Maiduguri, the 2007 PDP gubernatorial candidate, added that already a protest letter has been communicated to the National Working Committe of the APC to that effect.

He said the 12 aspirants in protest have already appealed to the APC national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and NWC despite the fact that they are aware that an appeal panel has been constituted to  look into all petitions and appeals arising from the gubernatorial primaries across the country.

Imam said, “We are aware that an appeal panel has been constituted to look into all petitions and appeals arising from the gubernatorial primaries across the country. We await the decision of the NWC and the appeal panel to take the appropriate steps to salvage this aberration so that it does not lead to break down of the fragile law and order we are currently enjoying in the state.”

Imam also reaffirmed his commitment towards the economic development of the state with a view to creating sustainable employment for all citizens, while stressing that, he was also committed to ensuring education for all Borno children through free and compulsory education programmes for primary and secondary schools across the state, as a life long commitment.
