Gombe Gov, Dankwambo Assures of Peaceful Elections

The governor of Gombe State in North east Nigeria, Ibrahim Dankwambo, at the weekend gave assurances that the coming general elections would be peaceful in the state.

Speaking to journalists after the secretary to the state government, Abubakar Sule Bage, presented the scorecard of the administration, the Dankwambo said that the state government was already sensitising the people on the need of having a peaceful election, and promised that he would do all that is possible to ensure that the polls are conducted without violence



    “Elections will come and go but people will continue to exist. For violence and insecurity in general, I assure Gombe people that we will do our best to provide adequate security measures that will ensure peaceful elections this year. We will not do anything that will cause disharmony among our people. We have already started sensitizing our people to be law abiding during the elections,” the governor assured.

    Dankwambo also called on politicians in all the political parties to conduct peaceful campaigns and accept election results without resorting to violence.

    He promised the people of the state that he would do more in developing the state and build on his achievements so far

    “We have already outlined what we are going to do but the area of focus is the continuous development of what we have already started in the first term but focusing more on education and infrastructure as well as ensuring that  Gombe becomes a home to all. Collectively, everybody has a role to play we must work together in order to move Gombe forward in the next four years if re-elected.” the governor said.
