Maintain cordial relationship with Wamakko, Shettima urges Sokoto gov 

Vice President, Kashim Shettima, has urged the Governor of Sokoto State, Ahmed Aliyu, to maintain a cordial relationship with the former governor of the state and his political mentor, Senator Aliyu Wamakko.

He urged Governor Aliyu not to allow rumour mongers to create a rift between him and Senator Wamakko, who is also the leader of APC in Sokoto state.

He made the call during a visit to Governor Ahmed Aliyu at the Government House, Sokoto.

According to him, enemies of the state will try their best to see that the good relationship existing between the Governor and Senator Wamakko is jeopardised.

Shettima added that enemies will employ different tactics such as peddling rumours to truncate the healthy relationship between Governor Aliyu and Senator Wamakko.

He reminded Governor Aliyu of the need to do everything humanly possible to maintain the cordial relationship existing between him and his mentor, Senator Wamakko.

He said, “Maintain your relationship with Wamakko because he is a leader, not only in Sokoto but the entire North.

“Learn from myself and my predecessor Prof. Zulum,” he urged.

The vice president described Senator Wamakko as humble, gentle as well as an elder statesman who is respected by all.

He said Senator Wamakko has contributed immensely to the development of not only the Northern region but Nigerian as a whole.

A statement signed by the spokesman of the state governor, Abubakar Bawa, disclosed that the governor, in his remarks thanked the vice president for his kind words of encouragement and pledged to heed the advice given to him.
