Senators Dauda Yaroe (PDP, Adamawa South) and Danjuma Goje (APC, Gombe Central) yesterday at plenary disagreed on way out of the communal clashes between Waja and Lugunda ethnic groups in the southern axis of both states.
Yaroe had, in a motion, urged the Senate to send delegation to the two communities in Balanga LGA, Gombe State and Guyuk LGA in Adamawa State to preach peaceful co-existence to the warring communities.

But Goje, disagreed, saying the governors of the affected states should visit the communities.
He said Gombe State Governor Inuwa Yahaya had visited the affected communities in Gombe State and restored peace, claiming that Adamawa State Governor Ahmadu Fintiri had not done so.
Later in a media briefing, Yaroe said Goje got it wrong by alleging that Governor Fintiri had not visited the affected communities in Adamawa State.
“Governor Fintiri had visited the affected communities in Guyuk LGA of Adamawa State and to a very great extent , restored peace in the area…As Gombe people are peace loving , so also are the Adamawa People,” he said.
