Gubernatorial candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Gombe State, Senator Usman Bayero Nafada, has assured the people that he would continue with the noble policies of the incumbent administration in the state if elected into office in the forthcoming general election.
Nafada said since “everyone in Gombe State attest to the facts that the administration of Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo has done remarkably more than words can express,” he would build on the foundation of good governance laid by the governor in Gombe State.
In a statement made available to The Guardian by the Senior Special Assistant to the governor, Alhaji Abu-Ubaida Ibrahim Kuna, Senator Nafada made the remarks when he met with members of Gombe Concerned Citizens Forum in Gombe on Sunday.
The PDP guber candidate noted that even visitors to Gombe State attest to the facts that the administration of Governor Dankwambo has laid the foundation of good governance in Gombe State and that the state has been transformed from the lower level to an exemplary state in the country.
He added that the modernity of the city of Gombe has given courage to the entire citizens that Gombe needs no break in leadership system or governance, but requires the stability and continuation of PDP government to sustain the infrastructural development put in place by the present administration.
Nafada pointed out that Governor Dankwambo’s achievements in less than eight years are unquantifiable, stressing that the administration made education its first, second and third priority by giving it prime attention.
“We cannot put a stop, our administration will equally give greater priority to the sector by continuing from where Dr. Dankwambo stops. The signature and other projects done by the present administration would be sustained.
“They include the Gombe International Conference Centre, which is the first of its kind in the entire North, the Petroleum Tankers Parking Bay, the Mega Motor Park, the Women and Children Hospital, Idi, Snake Bite Hospital and Research Centre Kaltungo, the Gombe State University of Science and Technology, Kumo.
“Also, the College of Education Billiri, the Gombe State Polytechnic, Bajoga, the College for Legal and Islamic Studies, Nafada, the central model primary schools, Science and Technical Schools constructed across the eleven local governments of the state would be sustained and well managed by his administration if given the mandate by the good people of Gombe State.”
