Gombe – Isma’il Uba Misilli, the Director-general of press affairs to Gombe state Governor has said that while some politicians are busy planning for 2023, his boss has remained dedicated to the Gombe development.
Misilli told newsmen that his governor is busy establishing structures and repositioning different sectors in the state to open up socio-economic activities, as reported by Leadership.
“While others are planning for 2023, the great Yahaya is making smart moves to establish links and connections with federal ministries and parastatals to explore more ways of collaboration to move Gombe State forward.
“His aim is to serve his people to the best of his ability and not betray the confidence and trust they reposed in him.
“It is a fact that Gombe State was at the bottom of the list in terms of revenue allocation from federation account, but due to his ingenuity and commitment to fulfilling the dream of the founding fathers of the state, the governor, in a little more than two years in office, made Gombe a model in revenue generation and collection, rubbing shoulders with giant states.
“Gombe will insha Allah, in no distant time, be able to survive even without federal allocation,” Misilli said.
Misilli said Muhammau Inuwa Yahaya had concluded plans to build a befitting state secretariat for convenience and smooth running of government, as most state’s ministries were scattered within residential areas in rented buildings.
In a statement issued by the Information Officer of the House, Abubakar Umar on Tuesday, said this reflects an increase of N353,350,000.00, over the initial N154,610,614,000.00), proposed by the State Governor Inuwa Yahaya, Punch reported.
