A former Governor of Gombe State, Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo was on Monday declared as the candidate to fly the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) flag for the Gombe North Senatorial District seat in the 2023 elections.

 Dankwambo was the candidate of the PDP during the 2019 elections, but was defeated by the incumbent, Senator Saidu Ahmed Alkali of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

 For the Gombe Central seat, Alhaji Abubakar Aliyu, a gubernatorial candidate of the Congress for Progressives Change (CPC) in 2011, scored 59 votes to defeat Muhammadu Aliyu Baba who got three votes, to be declared as winner and PDP’s flag bearer.

 He will slug it out at the general elections against either of, the incumbent, Senator Muhammad Danjuma Goje, former Minister of Transportation, Senator Idris Abdullahi Umar or Alhaji Abubakar Habu Muazu of the APC.

 While for the Gombe South Senatorial District, Mr Anthony Siyako Yaro scored 59 votes in a keenly contest against Hajiya Fatima Binta Bello, who scored 57 votes.

 Binta Bello, a former member of the House of Representatives, was the party’s candidate in 2019, but was defeated at the general elections by Colonel Bulus K. Amos (retired) of the APC.
