|Politics / Sallah: Shun Politics Of Violence, Dankwambo Urges Politicians by Dankwambo42019: 2:22pm On Aug 21, 2018|
Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo of Gombe state, has urged politicians to shun politics of blackmail and violence and ensure the sustainability of peace and unity in the country.
Dankwambo gave the advice during Sallah lunch held at the state banquet hall, shortly after the Eid-el kabir prayers. While pleading with those vying for political office to maintain decorum and avoid using inflammable words, he said that.
“As we are approaching critical political era, it is our hope that politicians in the country will allow the peace and unity of Nigeria.” According to him, the celebration is an opportunity to learn the lessons of Eid-El-Kabir by living peacefully in obedience to the dictates of Allah.
“ I admonish us all to learn from the lesson of Eid-El-Kabir and show love to one another irrespective of religious or ethnic differences. “We must imbibe the tenets of Islam by promoting harmony and peaceful co-existence amongst our diverse people.
“ Eid-El-Kabir festival connotes sacrifice, selflessness, love and obedience to the dictates of Allah”, he said.

|Politics / Dankwambo Meets Obasanjo, Says Buhari Can’t Effect Desired Change by Dankwambo42019: 2:13pm On Aug 15, 2018|
Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo of Gombe State and presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday held a three-hour closed-door meeting with former President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
After the meeting at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Dankwambo declined to disclose what he discussed with the ex-president.
The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, had a day earlier (Monday) held a similar secrete meeting with Obasanjo at the same venue.
In the last one moth, about four presidential aspirants have visited Obasanjo, all of them seeking his blessings for their ambition.
Immediately Dankwambo emerged from the meeting, he rushed to the Park Inn Hotel, a few metres away, where he held another meeting with the Ladi Adebutu faction of the PDP, after which he spoke to awaiting journalists, assuring that he would provide quality and effective leadership if elected.
He said his administration would declare war on poverty and injustice.
The Gombe governor condemned the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government for “failing” to provide the positive change it promised Nigerians.
“We were all shouting that we wanted change but we didn’t ask how he (President Buhari) wanted to change the whole thing from negative to positive. Is he even qualified to make the change?” he queried.
Dankwambo solicited the cooperation and support of his party faithful, saying he could not achieve his aim without them.
“Nobody can do it alone, but when you understand the people you want to serve, you are going to give them the best.
I didn’t know there are potholes in Ogun State because there is no pothole in Gombe State. Victory in 2019 is coming to our party PDP.
“I have been a governor for seven years now and I am the only governor that came back the second time.
We have provided leadership before and we are still going to do more of it.
We have developed economic blueprint, we will share it, we are still looking at the event. I will provide the leadership Nigerians want”.
Dankwambo, who also addressed delegates of the PDP for the 2019 presidential primary election in Lagos, told them it was not out of place for Nigerians to sit down and renegotiate the federation, judging by what is currently happening in the country.
He said he was on the same page with politicians on the issue of restructuring.
“Anybody that sees and feels what is happening would know that Nigeria needs a better arrangement for it to function better.”
The governor, however, said renegotiating the federation did not necessarily mean we should break up, but to deliberate on how we can better improve our relationship, economy and polity.
He promised to look critically into the nation’s economy and security situation, which he said were not properly managed by the present government, if elected.
“I will replicate, in a far better manner, what I did for nearly eight years in my state, Gombe.”
The governor identified three major areas he will first tackle if given the party’s ticket and eventually wins the election.
“ Absence of quality leadership where balance decision is also absent has created more problems for Nigeria than before.
“Going by my credentials and my contributions to the development of the country in the administrations of erstwhile presidents Obasanjo, Umaru Yar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan, I have what it takes to bail Nigeria out of its present quagmire.”

|Politics / Dankwambo Reveals How Restructuring Will Help Nigeria by Dankwambo42019: 9:22am On Aug 15, 2018|
Gombe State Governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo
Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo of Gombe State on Tuesday said that the restructuring of Nigeria was necessary for the nation to actualise its aspirations.
Dankwambo made the statement in Lagos when he visited members of the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party.
He said most the challenges the country was faced with were because of the weak federal system it was operating.
The governor, a presidential aspirant in the PDP, said the country must drift towards true federalism in order to achieve its development goals.
“The restructuring of the country is imperative for progress. We need to negotiate and re-negotiate the kind of federation we are operating for development.
“I believe in true federalism, therefore, I am on the same page with people who support restructuring of the country,” he said.
Dankwanbo said the creation of state police, resource control and other ingredients of true federalism would be in the interest of the country if adopted.
The governor said there was the need to address what he called the leadership question in the country, to move it forward.
Dankwanbo said it was with a view to take Nigeria to the desired level of development that he offered himself for service.
He said he was qualified and experienced, and urged Nigerians to vote right on 2019.
The governor commended the new spirit in the PDP, saying the party had been repositioned for greatness.
He urged delegates from Lagos to support his aspiration, as he meant well for the country.

|Politics / 2019: I Am Not Campaigning For PMB, Dankwambo Says by Dankwambo42019: 12:25am On Jun 08, 2018|
Gombe State Governor, Ibrahim Hassan DanKwambo has dissociated himself from a video that has now gone viral where he was said to be campaigning for President Muhammadu Buhari ahead of the 2019 presidential elections.
While reacting to the said video which is now in circulation in the social media, Hassan DanKwambo through his Special Assistant on Media, Junaidu Usman Abubakar declared that there is no reason for him as a leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign for a presidential candidate of another political party.
The Governor pointed out that the video is the “handiwork of political detractors within and outside the state who are bent on destroying the political career built over the years which is visible in the performance of the PDP led administration in the state.”
While confirming the authenticity of the video, the Governor through his media aide explained that, “No, this was his 2015 swearing in speech at the stadium when President Muhammadu Buhari was elected as the new in-coming President of Nigeria. What is happening is the sponsorship of Abuja based nPDP members who want to discredit the personality of Hassan DanKwambo.”
He added that, “the detractors decided to use the video now because of the growing political influence of Hassan DanKwambo. The developmental projects executed by the administration are testimonies to his growing political influence.”
The Governor however reiterated his determination to remain in the PDP and work for its success in the general elections expressing confidence that the party is now reformed and ready to face the electorates in the 2019 general elections.
On the 2019 presidential race, Hassan DanKwambo through the Media aide explained that consultations are on-going and at the appropriate time a definite pronouncement will be made publicly.
He then called on the people of Gombie State to remain committed to the ideals of the PDP which he said has taken the state to greater heights assuring that the party will not let them down in terms of development.

|Politics / Alhaji Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo: A Better Choice Before Nigerians by Dankwambo42019: 6:40pm On Jun 07, 2018|
ALHAJI IBRAHIM HASSAN DANKWAMBO: A BETTER CHOICE BEFORE NIGERIANS?
It is true that a golden fish has no hiding place. The professional, political and public service career of national and global leaders are always in public domain. Their performance or lack of it stands them out as the populace, public affairs analysts and social affairs commentators are wont to publicly and vocally assess their varied contributions to the socio-economic wellbeing of the citizenry at large.
The above musing aptly describes the dynamic and highly resourceful Governor of Gombe state, Dr Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo, FCIB, FCA, OON, (Talban-Gombe) within the backdrop of a higher calling that is currently tolling its bell on him ahead of 2019. For the consummate technocrat, cerebral chartered accountant and super-achieving administrative helmsman par excellence, much has been written and chronicled on his superb and superlative infrastructural and developmental exploit as well as his groundbreaking reforms both in Gombe state as the incumbent chief executive officer and the office of the Accountant General of the Federation that have repositioned and recalibrated the said offices for a more credible, responsive and efficient service delivery to the people and the nation at large.
Much of the publicity has been unsolicited as the unassuming and largely self-effacing Talban Gombe believes in silent and unheeded achievements, with solid and indelible administrative reforms and infrastructural projects on ground to speak for themselves rather than engaging in undue media hype or sensational headlines that are the province of many a politician.
However, much as Dankwambo might want to avoid the public limelight, his tremendous and all-encompassing performance at various levels of governance and administration has attracted unprecedented adulation and encomiums to the extent that no less an influential and prescient man of God, the famed Catholic prelate, Father Ejike Camilus Mbaka, has predicted that the 2019 presidential mandate rests squarely on the broad shoulders of the highly respected Gombe state helmsman. The revered cleric did not mince words while prophesying that Dankwambo has the wherewithal to take Nigeria decisively and unerringly out of the woods of despair, despondency and decay that the APC-led federal government has plunged it since coming to power on May 29, 2015.
In an unequivocal and straightforward celestial pontification, Father Mbaka predicted that the savvy and articulate Dankwambo will inherit the presidential crown in order to repeat the magic that he has performed in Gombe state and at the federal level in order to bring the country closer to the standard of living and economic attainment of advanced countries in the global comity of nations; no more, no less. With the pronouncement of the Catholic priest who is renowned for the authenticity and fecundity of his prophecies and who has never for once met Dankwambo in person, the whole political configuration, calculation and permutations for 2019 has been inexorably altered.
At the moment, the vast majority of the nation’s citizenry are lining up, locked in step behind the fortuitous and auspicious candidacy of the Gombe political wonder who defied all imaginable odds to emerge the only re-elected PDP governor in the whole of the North despite the fact that the rival APC swept the region in a massive tsunami during the 2015 general election.
Indeed, the Peoples Democratic Party leadership seems galvanized by Father Mbaka’s earth-shaking prediction affirming that Dankwambo is eminently qualified to assume the mantle of presidential leadership at any time and that his candidacy must come as a huge relief for legions of the party’s faithful as well as millions of ordinary Nigerians who are craving for a credible alternative to the directionless leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari and his fellow travelers in APC. Without doubt, the last man standing, as Talban is affectionately referred to, won in Gombe on the basis of merit, hardwork, competence and exemplary performance.
He touched the lives of the people of the state in all material spheres, be it in road infrastructure, health, education, power, water supply, rural development, agriculture, manpower development and women or youth empowerment. All these sectors have been decisively and positively affected by Dankwambo’s No-Citizen-Left-Behind policy. All the eleven local government areas of the state have felt the impact of the visionary leadership of the governor. For instance, immediately after the 2015 elections, the first set of roads that were constructed Dankwambo where in the enclave of his defeated APC gubernatorial rival, Alhaji Inuwa Yahaya This was in consonance with admirable mantra of Politics Without Bitterness of the Talban Gombe.
Indeed, the infrastructural revolution embarked upon by the indefatigable governor has been unprecedented throughout the nation, dwarfing those of Lagos, Rivers, Akwa Ibom among others, on an income per capital ratio, given the fact that Gombe State receives a paltry N2 billion per annum as federal allocation compared to the over N15-N30 billion naira received annually by the aforementioned oil-producing states.
Tens of thousands of kilometers of urban and rural roads have been completed while a lot more are under construction. Hundreds of hospitals, maternity and health centres, primary, secondary and Arabic schools have been either constructed or rehabilitated with adequate supply of hospital equipment, drugs, desks, chairs and laboratory equipment respectively. In the agriculture sector, tremendous progress has been attained with fertilizer, seedlings, farm implements, tractors, harvesters, planters, sprayers and many more supplied or leased to agrarian farmers at highly subsidized rates to boost agricultural production in the Jewel of the Savannah.
Dankwambo’s youth and women empowerment programme is also a complement to his development agenda for the state as tens of thousands of women and youths have been trained in fish farming, rabbit and poultry production, bee keeping, hair dressing, barbing, sewing, tying and dying, soap making, as well as confectionary skills.
All these are geared towards enhancing their income-generating and self-sustenance status. Thousands of graduates and other categories of staff have been employed in the Gombe State public service ever since the Talban Gombe assumed office on May 29, 2011.
Indeed, to catalogue the length, breadth and scope of the landmark administrative, infrastructural and developmental exploits of the Last Man Standing is beyond the breadth of this treatise, but it is fair to surmise that the nation needs, as a matter of urgency, the leadership sagacity of Governor Dankwambo, as well as his depth of experience, vision, vigour and fortitude to pilot the ship of the Nigerian State to safer and calmer shores come 2019.

This is one of many investments Dankwambo made to solidify Gombe’s status as the best in higher education and is already paying off by increasing Students enrollment in to the state owned higher Institutions and creating new jobs now, and bolstering long-term economic growth and innovation going forward.
Data shows that from 2011 to date jobs creations and students enrollment in to the higher institutions in Gombe State grow faster and unemployment is becoming lower than before, through the establishment of the College of Education Billiri, Gombe State Polytechnic Bajoga, College of Legal and Islamic Studies Nafada, Gombe State University of Science and Technology Kumo, and the opportunities will be continue increasing through the proposed Gombe State college of Accountancy, Gombe State College of Agriculture and Animal Husbandry, Institute of Journalism and Institute of Sports.
Some people may think that Governor Dankwambo is too ambitious.
No, this is exactly the kind of investment we need in Gombe State and our economy, for us and for our children and grandchildren.
The already established and the other proposed institutions will surely educate many more highly skilled, highly qualified sons and daughters of Gombe State to be the good citizens of the future.
“Most of the graduates will live in Gombe, work in Gombe, and help make Gombe the intellectual and economic success story State in the whole of Nigeria”.
Governor Dankwambo for his vision, courage and leadership, recently approved the released of the sum of N495Million for the payment of arrears of allowances and accreditation exercise of Gombe State University.
