On the importance of the Verdicts, he said: “The first, second, and 3rd Verdicts are aimed at preserving Governor Zulum’s legacies to provide access of future leaders to information about government policies and programs, and to research information.”

Such documentation, according to him, is important because; retrieving information about the activities of leaders tends to get more difficult, particularly when the digital foci are more on the newest information than older ones.

“Happy birthday to His Excellency, the outstanding governor of Borno State,” said Gusau.
