Those who worked to ensure Tinubu’s victory will be rewarded – Marafa

Senator Kabir Marafa has assured that the efforts of all the persons who worked for the victory of President Bola Tinubu in the February 25 election will not be in vain.

He said the president has promised to change the reward system.

The lawmaker stated this at an event organised to appreciate God for Tinubu’s victory and successful inauguration on Tuesday night in Abuja.

Marafa, who was the Zamfara State Coordinator of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, said the president has put machineries in place to strengthen the reward system of the All Progressives Congress in a bid to discourage the trend of “monkey de work, baboon de chop”.

He said; “Mr. President said I should tell you that he is still on his promise to change the reward system of government. Mr. President appreciates what Zamfara State did. The President has the people of the state in his mind; he is a person that appreciates people. He is the President of the whole country, not for Zamfara alone.

“He appreciates what people have done, I have told him everything, he is aware of the anti-party activities committed in the state, and he knows the perpetrators and everything.

“I am thankful to God because of the mercy He has shown to us because we won before, we won again and we won again. So, if we lose now, what is the big deal about it? You cannot know who is good until there is a comparison.

“Some people were given an assignment and they failed woefully. We were given an assignment, and we delivered triumphantly. So, we thank God, I want to assure you the President has Zamfara in his mind. He is the President of the country, not Zamfara alone. This is the person that appreciates people; this is a person that appreciates what people have done.

“We have told him everything, the era of ‘monkey dey work, baboon dey chop’ is over. Mr. President said he is still on his promise to change the reward system of government. And I am sure he is going to do it. Politics is about inclusion, about the people. So what I did is for your efforts collectively; all of you”.
