Gombe State governor, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, has said delegates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the state speak with one voice, and will return APC to power in the 2023 elections.
The governor stated this during an interactive session with a presidential aspirant of the party and immediate past Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.

“Gombe is ready for you and as a leader of the party in the state, I want to assure you that these delegates you have seen are speaking with one voice. We will stand and fight and return APC to government by God’s grace in 2023,” he said.
The governor said that Amaechi had shown the capacity to deliver in any political position by his credentials from being a member and speaker of the state assembly, two-term governor, and served as a minister.
“God knows if you get to that level you’re aspiring to, all your political dreams would have been sealed,” he said.
In an interview with newsmen shortly after an interactive session with the APC delegates, Amaechi said he was the most experienced of all the aspirants vying to clinch the party’s ticket.
“I am more experienced than all of them; I have been governor, minister, and speaker of the state assembly, all for two terms. I have been a director general of President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign. I have toured the country and took the president to the 36 states of the federation.
“These gave the rare experience to understand what is going on and how to tackle the problems head on,” he said.
