Dankwambo urges NASS to support Buhari


Gombe – Gombe state governor, Alhaji Ibrahim Dankwambo, has urged members of the National Assembly, irrespective of political differences, to support President Mohammadu Buhari to change the country for better.
Dankwambo made the appeal on Monday when he received Hajiya Fatima Bello, Deputy Minority Whip of the House of Representatives, in Gombe.
“We need to give the president time to settle down; we should not underrate the complex system of Nigeria.
“We are in a very complex society; he needs to understand it before he can fulfil the promises he made,’’ he said.
Reiterating that the president should be given time to work, he advised the legislators to ensure that their oversight functions were carried out in a way not to make the people to suffer.
“Period of politicking is over; all of us should rally round the president,’’ Dankwambo said.
Commending the lawmaker, he said, ‘’the deputy minority whip, who is an indigene of Gombe, representing Kaltungo/Shongom Federal constituency has done well.
‘’Among all the members that represent the state in the National Assembly, Bello has excelled. I am glad that most of the members that accompanied her are from the North-East region of the country.
“It is a clear fact that North-East is the most backward region in terms of everything in the country.
“I am appealing to you to use your position and bring development and greater achievement. For the first time, we are having a speaker from the North-East; I feel this is our time,’’ he said.
