“I am a loyal servant, and nothing has changed,” Shaibu emphasized. “I took a vow to support my governor, and that is what I will do. As you can see, my Catholic people are here. I can only wish that the relationship we had will come back in the next few days and weeks.”

Shaibu assured that his dedication to the state and its development remained unwavering, saying, “I mean well. If there is any mistake I have made as a human, it is not out of wickedness because I know I’m not wicked. I have a very clean heart.”
