Quotes

"She played really unbelievable tennis and she put a lot of balls back. Almost all of them. For me it was very difficult just to play only on the winners."
"He was practically on his knees thanking Governor Suntai for the opportunity given to him. You know, he didn't even know he would be deputy governor in his life. The highest appointment he held before in the state was that of a board member of the Muslim Pilgrim Board. And he is not a resident of the state as he was born, raised and he lived all his life outside the state. But we needed to replace Sani Abubakar who we impeached. So I suggested to the governor that we should pick the replacement from the Wurkum people. That's what we did. So when he came in, Umar was really filled with gratitude. There are talks that he was really having a serious financial crisis."
"We hope that you will talk to all of us, particularly the powers that be to help us ensure that elections in Nigeria are truly free, fair and democratic and that a proper level playing field is guaranteed. The truth is that we are often blamed for being bad losers, not just the APC, but Nigerians. But losers find it difficult to accept because there is no demonstrable level playing field" he said
"This zone (North-west), which is the largest in terms of number of states, has placed on our shoulder the challenge of holding regular meetings and consultations so as to remain ahead of others at all times" he stressed
