Gombe State Governor, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, has urged youths in the state to shun violence and cultivate the virtue of discipline and self-control in the society. 

A statement by his spokesman, Ismaila Uba Misilli, said the governor made the call during a Ramadan Tafsir session at the Doma Mosque in Jekadafari area of Gombe metropolis.

Governor Yahaya said the call became necessary in view of the forthcoming elections in which youths are the main targets of “unscrupulous politicians” to cause distress and disrupt the peaceful atmosphere.

He admonished youths to do away with violent tendencies, even as he tasked parents to live up to their responsibility of instilling discipline and good values in their wards so they would grow up to become great leaders and responsible citizens. 

Yahaya noted that when children are properly equipped with home values, discipline and guidance, they will grow up to exhibit good characters and build on the legacy of credible leadership they have learnt from home and that the society will be better for it.

However, he assured that his administration will continue to bring policies and programmes that will address the socio-economic challenges in the state.

Earlier, Sheikh Aminu Ibrahim Daurawa who presided over the Tafsir session, commended Governor Yahaya for always being down to earth and assured him of support and prayers for the success of his administration.
