Maiduguri – The candidate of African Democratic Congress (ADC) in Borno state Hajiya Fatima Abubakar says she is optimistic of winning the governorship election in the state.

Abubakar is only female candidate for the election as she said the house-to-house campaign has already started in order to reach out to the electorate in the state.

She told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Maiduguri on Wednesday that she has been gaining more support and popularity from the electorate.

“I am getting more popular with more supporters, particularly women who believe in my capacity to bring more and better transformation in the lives of women and youths in Borno.

“I want to urge women and youths we are reaching out to, to also extend the messages to others on the need to try the few women candidates in this contest for positive change,” Abubakar said.

She debunked speculations that she has stepped down from the race because her campaign posters and billboards were not visible like others, Vanguard reported.
