A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Gombe State, Alhaji Jamil Isyaku Gwamna has condemned the recent attack and attempt by political thugs to block Senator Muhammad Danjuma Goje from entering the state.
In a statement by his media aide, Ibrahim Sani Shawai, the APC chieftain described the incident as undeserving and highly disrespectful to a leader of Goje’s calibre, “and a father whose influence has benefitted Gombe, Northeast and Nigeria as a whole.”
According to him, the attempted blockage by whoever organised it should be seen as a major set back on the ideals of what politics represents in Gombe state.

“Attempt to deny Senator Goje access to a state he so contributed to its development in an unmatchable manner is an act of ingratitude which Gombawa, home and abroad cannot be proud of.
“It is a known fact that Senator Goje has raised and mentored many as well as empowered a lot of persons who are very much relevant in the political architecture of the state today and as such must be given that salute as a political general,” Gwamna said.
He stated that people of Gombe celebrate their heroes, adding that the attack is alien to people of the state and must not be allowed to repeat itself especially in the interest of peace and development going into 2023.
He, therefore, called on security operatives to conduct thorough investigations to unravel those behind the attack and dealt with anyone found guilty in line with the provisions of the law.
