Monarch charges Inuwa on inclusive government
Oba of Yoruba community in Gombe State, Oba Abdulrahim Jimoh Alao Yusuf has urged Governor Inuwa Yahaya to consider balancing the equation by including Yoruba in his cabinet.
In his new year message, the monarch noted with appreciation the appointment of an Igbo man as a Senior Special Adviser (SSA) on community relations in Inuwa’s government.
He said: “This is a clear display of a good leadership with high inkling for inclusivity, it is good and well taken. The governor will do well and better too if he could also consider Yoruba man for a political post.
“We have many of them in Gombe, as we have many journalists, we have artisans, businessmen and intellectuals for such consideration,” he pleaded.
Yusuf recalled that Yoruba community has been in the state for over 100 years, noting that even his grandfather lived and died in Gombe.
The monarch from Ogbomosho in Oyo State noted that Yoruba people are not only educated enough to occupy political posts, but “they have ever been peace loving, cautious and patriotic.”
He enjoined all residents to support Inuwa’s government towards better state for the citizenry.
