“We’ll not Fail You”, Gombe Governor Tells Goje
Former Governor of Gombe state, Sen. Muhammad Danjuma Goje has paid glowing tribute to Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya Yahaya’s steadfastness in piloting the affairs of the State, describing his stewardship in the last two years in office as superlative and remarkable.
This was contained in a statement issued to PRIME TIME NEWS on Thursday and signed by the Director General Press Affairs at the Gombe State Government House, Ismaila Uba Misilli.
He spoke when he led members of the senate committee on the review of the 1999 constitution ( North East Zone) on a courtesy visit to Governor Inuwa Yahaya at the Government House Gombe.
He remarked, “This Governor is our Governor he is doing very very well, he has picked up from where we left and is even doing better than we did and therefore he deserves all our support. So I want to use this opportunity to call on the people of Gombe State particularly the political elite to rally round the Governor and give him the moral boost that he needs so as to do better”.
Senator Goje said he, alongside senators Saidu Alkali and BK Amos as well as other members of the National Assembly are very much satisfied with the performance of Governor Inuwa Yahaya, urging him to continue with the good work.
He said it was the first time he paid a courtesy visit to the Gombe government house since he left office in 2011. “Before I talk on what brought us here to Gombe, I think it’s important to let the public know that since I left this government house ten years ago, this is my first courtesy call” “For obvious reasons, in the last dispensation, I was never here and I never came to the government house, of course there’s no need for me to be here then”, Goje reiterated.
While responding, Governor Yahaya who addressed Goje as ‘leader’, assured him that he’ll not fail him. “I would like to say that we’ll not fail you, we’ll not be distracted from the way and track you set this government”. Governor Yahaya said.
