Gombe Governor Attends NGF Farewell Dinner For Outgoing Governors

Gombe State Governor, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, alongside his counterparts from the 36 States on Sunday attended a farewell dinner, organised by the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, NGF in honour of outgoing Governors.

The event took place at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja, with former, outgoing and current governors taking turns to share experiences on governance and its challenges as well as on life after office.

Governor Inuwa, while speaking to the media on the sidelines of the event, underscored the importance of such gathering, saying it has provided opportunity to learn from each other and exchange ideas on how best to improve on good governance in the country.

Speaking on his ‘magic wand’ that saw to the incredible transformation of Gombe State in less than 4 years of his stewardship, Governor Inuwa said ” We thank God we didn’t go in blindfolded. We went with a clear mission and vision; and Ahamdulillah we’ve been able to cultivate the grounds on which we are able to impact positively on the lives of our people through the projects and programmes we’re executing”.

The Governor said sheer determination, hardwork and the passion to deliver good services to the people were largely responsible for the giant strides being witnessed in Gombe State under his stewardship.

He emphasised the need for leaders to remain focused and not to allow distraction of any sort or form, maintaining that ” it is the leaders that guide and control the movement and we should therefore be on the positive side to direct and help the people in order to move together as one fold and not in disarray “.

There were good will messages from the NGF Chairman, Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto State, past chairmen and some development partners.
