Maku and his running mate Alhaji Abu Ibrahim were treated to a reception by displaced persons who cried out about their condition, saying they desired a true change that would translate into security of lives and property as well as general development in the state.
The campaign took Maku to various villages, south of the state. The zone is the worst hit by violent hostilities which rocked the state for three years now, claiming hundreds of lives, and displacing thousands from no fewer than 40 razed settlements including towns.  
Displaced women, men, the youths and the elderly were seen on both sides of the roads waving Maku’s posters in frenzied ecstasy.
Addressing a mammoth crowd, Maku said he would launch a special fund to reconstruct communities destroyed by suspected mercenaries if elected governor.
Maku, who spoke in Hausa, said his first priority if elected, would be the restoration of peace to areas afflicted by violence and reconstruction in collaboration with development partners and the private sector.
To achieve that, Maku said, he would start by halting the nefarious activities of marauding mercenaries in the state and then reconcile the communities to promote peace.
