While celebrating the 24th anniversary of the creation of Gombe State, Governor Yahaya reminded the people of the sacrifice of the nation’s and state’s founding fathers.
He said, “For us in Gombe State it is a double celebration as we mark Gombe at 24 and Nigeria at 60.
“Today we remind ourselves of the sacrifice of our heroes past and the essence of good and exemplary leadership in building a nation of our dream”.
“In Gombe, we are laying the foundation for sound economic, social and political order for all and we are committed to making sure that the dividends of democracy trickle down to the grassroots through the provision of people oriented projects.
Governor Inuwa Yahaya said his administration has embarked on a 10- year development plan which will cover governance and socio-economic growth to ensure continuity in governance and lay solid foundation for an enduring development of the state.
“Our administration is also constructing roads, through the ‘Network Eleven-Hundred’ initiative to link communities and improve movement of persons, goods and services; providing quality health care service, sound education at all levels, revamping the agricultural sector and reclaiming the environment through our flagship programme, the Gombe Goes Green and above all, ensuring peace and security in our dear state”.
He said the Gombe state under his leadership will continue to strive to do more through retrospective peer review mechanism so that the citizenry can be inspired to do more and make the state a shining star in the North East and the nation at large.
He enjoined Nigerians to continue to unite in building a stronger nation.
