"Anybody trying to play sectional politics with this is a coward. I was posted to Kano State in 1985 as a police officer. I have spent over 30 years there, even after my retirement. Some of my children do not even speak my language. When I relocated to Kano State, it had 44 local government areas. After creating Jigawa out of the state, it still remained 44. The whole nation saw this as a fraud. There was nothing anybody could have done then because it was during the military." - Alhaji Musa Shehu Isiwele, Uromi Kingdom.
