Gombe State Governor, Inuwa Yahaya, has said he didn’t run for governorship seat to enrich himself rather than to deliver good governance for the overall well-being of the people.
Yahaya said this when stakeholders of Yamaltu/Deba Local Government Area paid him a solidarity visit in Gombe on Saturday.
The governor said the essence of leadership was to improve the wellbeing and welfare of the people through execution of projects that have direct bearing on their lives.
He said it was by the will of God that he was elected to serve the people, adding: “I will not be afraid; I will ensure that the right thing is done for the benefit of the people.
“I didn’t seek power to be rich but to serve the people genuinely. I’m trying to assert and confirm that to the people, that is what is in my heart.
“I’m telling them to know so that they will key in and support whatever we are doing.
“I believe with what you saw, you are convinced that the people are with us, that’s the spirit and the essence of what I usually say in such meetings,” Yahaya said.
The governor stated that 56 years after the death of Sir Ahmadu Bello, “people are still praying for him today because of what he did for the people.
“That is a source of inspiration for me and that’s why I’m executing the Muhammadu Buhari Industrial Park and other projects so that we can be remembered and prayed for too,” he said.
Governor Yahaya said his administration has expended over N25 billion on execution of viable projects in Yamaltu/Deba like roads, schools, healthcare centres, among others.
He stated that similar investments were done across LGAs to ensure all inclusive growth and development for the people of the state.
The governor, however, urged residents of the state to support his administration to enable it to deliver more dividends of democracy to the people.
On his part, the Chairman of Yamaltu/Deba Local Government Council, Shuaibu Galadima, thanked the governor for executing projects aimed at creating jobs for the youths while improving the well-being of the people.
He pledged his people’s support to Governor Yahaya’s administration to fast-track delivering of people oriented projects.
