Dr Jamil Isyaku Gwamna has formally declared interest to contest the Gombe State governorship seat on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Dr Gwamna, who is the Sardaunan Gombe, made his intention known while addressing journalists in Gombe on Wednesday.
He stated that he was on a rescue mission in Gombe State to deliver the people of the state from the unprecedented hardship that the people had been subjected to under the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Dr Gwamna said his drive was to harness the resources of the state for the benefit of the generality of the people.
“If democracy is government of the people by the people and for the people; then the resources must be managed in a way to benefit the people.
“I am here to serve and not to be served. I have empowered many youth and women with my personal resources and I know I can do more with the resources of the state to improve on the living standard of Gombe people,” he said.
He added that his ambition was driven by the welfare and wellbeing of the people and with “my team come 2023 by Allah’s Grace, we will make Gombe great again and resume the development and massive infrastructure that the PDP had brought to Gombe State.”
