Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, has assured the people of the state that he would not be interfering with the 2019 gubernatorial primaries, as it is only God that gives power to whom he desires.

Shettima who spoke while hosting his last sallah party for the All Progressives Congress (APC) stakeholders at government house, Maiduguri, thanked the people of Borno state for the solidarity and support given to him in the last seven years as a governor.

He also cautioned some politicians who he alleged have looted the state treasury, owned four private airlines and newly joined the ruling party to dictate a successor for him for 2019.

Reports says, the governor said his administration survived issues of insecurity following attacks by Boko Haram terrorists, rebuilding of destroyed communities and schools, provision of social amenities and restoration of the dignity of Borno people, especially internally displaced persons (IDPs).
