“I am not backing down from my governorship aspiration. I am in this end to the end and I will win the election convincingly”.

Isiaka, added that eduction and health would take the lion share of his administration’s attention when elected Governor.

“Education and health remain our priority. Education is important to us because it is a sure way to fast track meaningful development. We cannot afford to pay lip service to the provision of quality education in our gateway state.
