“The good people of Zamfara State need freedom, peace and security which is a mirage at the moment.
“These ingredients of a good life have become elusive to my people, and it is against the backdrop of these challenges and with every sense of modesty, I am offering myself to serve the good people of Zamfara State.
” The economic and social welfare of my people is non negotiable. Freedom, peace and security of my people can only be achieved by a true, compassionate and visionary leader.
“I am calling on all the state delegates to vote a credible person like me that will deliver dividends of democracy to the door steps of the good people of Zamfara State come 2023,” Gusau stated.
