A STEP AT THE RIGHT DIRECTION BY GOMBE STATE GOVERNOR ALHAJI INUWA YAHAYA.
The Gombe state Governor Alhaji Inuwa Yahaya proposed to build one hundred and ten(110) ICT libraries in the entire eleven local governments areas of the state.
It is one thing to have a Governor and it is another thing to have a Governor who is innovative and focus on the steps to take in bringing fast educational and economic development of the youths in Gombe state.
Gombawa youths in Gombe state are very lucky to have a Governor that is full of ideas that will move the state forward by proposing to build one hundred and ten (110) ICT libraries in Gombe state, the youths in two or three years will all become ICT compliance and be relevant in the twenty first century modern ICT job opportunities that are available within the state,
Nigeria and the world at large. It will surprise you to note that Governor Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe state since assumption of office in 2019, he is working hard toward creating job opportunities to the Gombe state unemployment youths by creating wealth through different loans schemes, establishment of small and medium industries and promotion of educationally related areas especially prompt payment of salaries, clearing of back log of pension arrears, building and equipping of schools and hospitals as well as opening of ICT centers and libraries within the local Government Areas and the state capital. Also he improves business activities by installing solar street lights at different locations.
In addition to that our able Governor, who is God fearing and dedicated to the unity, peace and development of the people of Gombe state irrespective of religion, tribal or areas of resident. He was able to resolved two serious issues that wanted to create serious crisis in the entire state.
The Governor professionally in consultation with stakeholders such as politicians, traditional rulers, youth and women groups brought about peaceful resolution of the recent Billiri chieftaincy conflict that lead to destruction of lives and properties worth millions of naira.
Govenor Inuwa Yahaya was able to appoint the candidate of choice to the majority of people of Tangale as their traditional ruler (Mai Tangale). After the state government announcement of the new Mai Tangale peace, unity and understanding has since returned to the area and tangale people now realized the evil of there enemies, who mislead them to involved in the crisis that created religions differences in the tribal group, which took years without witnessing any kind of crisis even with their other tribal group neighbors. It was later that the tangale people of billiri realizes that governor Inuwa Yahaya love them most and want peace, unity and progress in billiri town and the entire Gombe state.
It is on this note, that I called on our Tangale brothers and sisters to know that traditional, political and economic powers are only given to an individual by God almighty the creator of all living things including human beings, it is on record that no matter how the President or Governor likes to give somebody traditional or political power in any community, it will not be possible until God Almighty accept the decision because man propose and God dispose.
Also it is on record and acceptable by all Gombawa and Nigerians at large that Tangale people are very peaceful, hardworking and united as one family irrespective of their religion and area of settlement differences.
Therefore I call on not only the Tangales but Waja, Fulani, Bolawa, Terawa, Beriberi and all other tribal groups in Gombe state including Hausawa, needs to learn to live in peace, unity and understanding as the only option that will allow our able dedicated, bridge builder,
mobilizer and peace maker Governor Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe state to bring more dividends of democracy.
Already a lot of achievement has being recorded in terms of roads construction, building and renovation of schools and hospitals, the donations of foodstuff and cash to the less privileged poor people, employment of youth and other development areas.
I will paused here, to continue where I stopped another time, because a lot need to be said on the steps taken at the right direction by the excellent administration of Governor Inuwa Yahaya.
