    It is really a privilege for the gubernatorial aspirant to have the gathering of journalists in his mist. They are actually the people to enlighten our society on issues and campaigns. Nevertheless I expect our journalists to take advantage of the moment, ask some valid questions to broaden our people’s curiosity. Such questions should include;
    1. Why was the aspirant running away from Bauchi people when he was the Chief of the Air Staff for 6 years?
    2. Why was he not helping the poor and the needy in Gwallaga, Giade and the entire state until now that he has political ambition?
    3. Why are the retired military officers especially, those from Bauchi state are not with him in his ambition?
    Answers to such questions may either reveals some hidden negative characters or selling points of the aspirant.
