Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Adamu Saleh, Gombe

Chief of Staff to the Gombe State gover­nor, Al­haji Ahmed Ya­yari, has called on youths in the state to en­sure that all posters and bill­boards be­long­ing to the All Pro­gres­sive Congress (APC) are re­moved.

Speak­ing dur­ing the foun­da­tion lay­ing cer­e­mony of a hospi­tal in Kal­tungo Lo­cal Govern­ment Area of the state, Ya­yari called on youths to make sure that all posters and bill­boards be­long­ing to the ri­val All Pro­gres­sive Congress (APC) in the state are re­moved be­fore Satur­day.

Ya­yari also tack­led for­mer gover­nor of the state, Dan­juma Goje, say­ing Dankwambo’s three years in of­fice have over­shad­owed his pre­de­ces­sor’s eight years.

“De­spite all the devel­op­men­tal projects Dankwambo has brought to Gombe-south con­stituency, some un­pa­tri­otic people in the state who are not happy with he is do­ing are say­ing “chanji dole”, mean­ing change is a must in Gombe. They are de­ceiv­ing us and the leader of this change; Goje, God gave him chance, we the people of Gombe also gave him chance for eight years but what has been achieved in three years un­der Dankwambo has over­shad­owed his eight years ten­ure. By al­low­ing them to erect their posters and bill­boards in the state to advertise their party, are we be­ing just?” he said.

He added: “If we truly like what Dankwambo is do­ing for us, is it right for us to al­low some people to come and bring change? We should re­spect our lead­ers and en­sure that any flag apart from that of the PDP flag is not hoisted. These people erect­ing other par­ties’ posters; are they from this state or from other parts of the coun­try? If they are not from this state, why should you al­low them to erect their posters in our state”.
