On day 5 and day 6 of the campaign, the campaign train stopped in the wards of Doho, Malam Sidi, Kwami, Malleri, Jurara, Daban Fulani, Bojude, Gadam, Kwami and Kompulata of the Kwami Local Government Area in the state.
His first stop was at the Palace of the Senior District Head of Kwami, Mr. Haruna Abdullahi, where he made plain his plans for the area and subsequently carried the message round the ten wards in the area.
The message at every stop was clear: fulfilled promises made in 2019 and trust to do more when re-elected in 2023, which would be geared towards the execution of projects that have a direct positive impact on the lives of the people of Kwami Local Government Area.
He cited examples of the road projects constructed in the area to link the villages to the palace of the District Head in Kwami and make the smaller towns have easy access to the leadership.
At the Emir’s Palace, Governor Yahaya informed the traditional leadership and party members and supporters that his administration was ever ready to continue to churn out policies, programmes and projects that will better the lots of the people.
“Despite some challenges, my administration was able to execute numerous projects in Kwami Local Government Area and other parts of the state, including the construction of roads, hospitals, and schools, among others,” he said.
The Senator representing Gombe North Senatorial District, Senator Sa’idu Ahmed Alkali, said Governor Yahaya had executed various projects, which had enhanced human capital development in the area and the state as a whole.
Senator Alkali said a renewed mandate for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state and country was a mandate for sustainable economic growth and development.
Similarly, the campaign coordinator of Tinubu/Shettima in Gombe state, Dr. Jamilu Ishiyaku Gwamna, had appealed to voters to elect the APC at all levels to reap more benefits of oil exploration in the state.
Recently, there has been a discovery of over one billion barrels of oil reserves and 500 billion cubic feet of gas within the Kolmani area, lapping on the border of Gombe and Bauchi states.
And there are huge potentials for more deposits as exploration efforts intensify.
“The successful discovery of the Kolmani Oil and Gas field by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and her partners has broken the jinx with the confirmation of huge commercial deposits of hydrocarbons in Kolmani River field.
“The discovery has now attracted investment for an end-to-end integrated development and monetization of the hydrocarbon resources,” President Buhari, who doubles as the Petroleum Minister, was quoted to have said in a statement.
