Governor Babagana Zulum wrote to the Assembly on April 23, 2021, requesting permission to take a 21-day leave.

“The governor also requested that in compliance with provisions of Section 190 (1) of the constitution, which made him notify the House, the Assembly should approve the deputy governor to serve as acting governor throughout the 21 days, to constitutionally give him the full powers to handle Borno State’s affairs without resort to the governor,” Malam Isa Gusau, Zulum’s spokesman noted in a statement yesterday.

Gusau said all government officials and institutions were directed to fully comply with the ‘transmission of power.’

However, the statement did not specify the reason for the governor’s leave.
