“Gombe has been developed for a certain period of time particularly during the tenure of former Governor Danjuma Goje, he was able to do so many things and what I intend to do now considering what we have today, the governor has not done much and I want to continue from where my leader, the former governor had stopped. He ensured that Gombe people are better and he became a Senator in Nigeria.”
