…As Governor Inuwa Sues for Prayers in Face of Hard Times in Nigeria

Former Nigeria’s Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon, has commended Gombe State Governor, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya CON, for his remarkable achievements, visionary leadership and commitment to the welfare and progress of the people of Gombe State and Nigeria as a whole.

The former Nigerian leader remarked on the profound impression Governor Inuwa Yahaya’s administration has left on him despite not having formally met him formally since his assumption of office as Governor of Gombe State in 2019.

He said the visible strides made by Governor Inuwa Yahaya’s administration as seen on various screens and platforms painted a vivid picture of steadfast commitment to effecting positive change, acknowledging that his leadership is making tangible impacts on the lives of the people of the state through legacy initiatives and projects that visible to all.

“I may not have the chance to personally witness the transformation taking place under your leadership in Gombe, but I must commend you for your remarkable strides in governance. It’s been quite some time since my last visit to Gombe, and I must acknowledge the evident change. The improvements I’ve observed are so significant that I find myself unable to recognise certain places from my previous visit”, Gowon said.

“Your Excellency, let me commend you for your efforts and urge you to continue the excellent work you are doing. We are closely observing the positive transformations taking place in Gombe, and you are certainly making us proud. Your genuine care for the welfare of your people, as well as the development and progress of your state and the nation, is highly commendable. I extend my best wishes to you for continued success throughout your tenure”, the former Head of State added.

Earlier, Governor Inuwa Yahaya described the visit as an honour done not just to his administration but to the entire people of Gombe State, emphasizing the hospitable nature of the people of the State.

He noted that the gracing of the commissioning of the church by General Gowon and other distinguished Nigerians couldn’t have come at a better moment, coinciding with Muslims observing the Holy month of Ramadan and some Christians fasting for Lent.

” Let us utilize this occasion to advocate for and spread the Gospel of peace. Nigeria is currently facing challenges, and there’s no reason for us to be in this situation. We are one people, and your message of unity, Your Excellency Gen. Gowon, resonates with us. We are a people of faith, and during the challenging days of the Nigerian civil war, you stood with us. Now you consistently serve the nation in various capacities, notably through initiatives like the Nigeria Prays, among others. We shall continue to stand together with you for peace and unity of Nigeria”, the Governor remarked.

The delegation arrived Gombe State to attend the dedication of a Church in Shongom Local Government built by an illustrious son, Mr. Jerry Damara for his community, Kulishi.
