Gombe gov swears in new LG bosses
Gombe State Governor Muhammad Yahaya has sworn in the 11 council chairmen elected last Saturday.
Swearing them in yesterday, Yahaya said the chairmen were elected in conformity with the law.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) governor commended the secretaries of the councils for their positive contributions during their tenure as overseers since May 2019.
He noted: “They did their best by ensuring that our communities lived peacefully and government policies and programmes were fully implemented.
“They also mobilised our citizenry who came out en masse to vote in the election which our great party, the APC won overwhelmingly.”
Meanwhile, the only female among the chairmen, Margaret Bitrus (Biliri Council), her government would be gender-friendly, with special focus on the womenfolk.
