The resolutions reached were read out by the Senator representing Gombe South Senatorial District, Senator Bulus Amos, who acknowledged the developments in the four local government areas, the high-level appointments and countless dividends in the zone within two years declared their unanimous confidence in Governor Yahaya.
According to him, the APC Stakeholders in Tangale Waja, made up of Balanga, Billiri, Kaltungo and Shongom, have proclaimed Governor Yahaya “as a man of fulfilment, accomplishment, integrity, honesty, magnanimity, patriotic stewardship, trustworthiness, sincerity of purpose, piety and selfless service to humanity.”
