Yobe Dessert Stars of Damaturu have sent a congratulatory message to their state’s new governor- elect, Alhaji Mai-Mala Buni, following his victory at the polls on March 9.
The Nigeria Porfessional Footballl League (NPFL) club congratulated Buni on his victory, just as the new number one citizen of Yobe State urged opposition parties to close ranks.
Buni called on all contending parties to join hands and move Yobe State forward, as he believes only a united clan will stand strong as one.
Buni, who was the national secretary of All Progressives Congress (APC) before his election, reiterated his determination to justify all confidence reposed in him by indigenes and residents of the state.
The management of Yobe Stars reciprocated by felicitating with Buni, and prayed that God will guide him towards a productive, successful and very peaceful tenure.
The statement read: “We @desert_fc Congratulate our Newly Elected Governor @Maimalabuni019 for his victory at just concluded election. May Allah be your Guide!”
