Sardauna Gombe Condemns Alleged Attack On Goje

The Sardauna Gombe, Dr. Jamil Gwamna, has condemned Friday’s alleged attempt to block the Senator Representing Gombe Central Senatorial District, Danjuma Goje, from entering into Gombe.

According to NAN, the incident resulted in the death of one person while several cars were damaged as confirmed by the state’s commissioner of police, Ishola Babaita, on Saturday.

Gwamna in a statement issued by his media aide, Ibrahim Shawai, in Gombe on Monday, said the development was a major set-back to the ideals of Gombe politics which described as “peaceful and brotherly.’’

According to Shawai, Gwamna said that the alleged attack whether sponsored or not was “undeserving and highly disrespectful to a leader and a father whose influence has not only benefitted Gombe, but Northeast and Nigeria as a whole.

“Gombe remains peace loving by all standards and this explains why everyone sees it as home and such must not be jeopardized on the altar of personal interest or unpopular politics.


“We have been known to be well-cultured politically in Gombe State and we must continue on that path by continually giving honour to whom honour is due.’’

He added that the alleged attempt to deny Goje access to a state he “so contributed to its development in an unmatchable manner is an act of ingratitude which Gombawa, home and abroad cannot be proud of.

“We celebrate our heroes in Gombe, we don’t disrespect them, hence the attack which is alien to us must not be allowed to repeat itself especially in the interest of peace and development going into 2023.’’

While calling on security agencies in the state to thoroughly investigate the development to ascertain if it was sponsored or not and bring those involved to book, Gwamna urged the people of the state to embrace peace.

“Let’s embrace peace and stability as the way to go because we have no other state to call home except GOMBE,’’ he added.
