Speaking shortly after the exercise, held at Idi Primary school, Gombe, Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya applauded the smooth conduct of the exercise, singling out the committee sent from the National Headquarters of the APC for special commendation.
“I want to assure the world that we are doing this simultaneously across the State and we are doing it in accordance with the guidelines and regulations of our great party so we in the APC remain resolute and steadfast and we shall continue to work assiduously and consolidate on the progress achieved by the party, knowing fully well that we struggled and fought resolutely and unseated a sitting Government of the PDP”.
The Governor assured the leadership of the All Progressive Congress at the National level that the APC led administration in the State will continue to work hard and strategise for future victories of the party at all levels.

“We are ready to face any political party and I have the firm belief that as a party we shall beat them squarely and continue to provide dividends of democracy to our teeming populace; there is no shaking, let the world know that we are in control, let the world know that we are in charge and let the world know that we are ready to deliver APC from the Local Government to the State and to the National level”, Governor Inuwa stressed.
