A stalwart of the All Progressive Congress in Gombe State, Hon. Musa Sani has described the miscarried presidential aspiration of the Gombe State Governor, Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo of the Peoples Democratic Party and his plans to hold rally in the state tomorrow as the financial fritter and prodigality that have wreaked severe havoc on the state’s coffers and Dankwambo should get ready to account for all financial recklessness of his administration.
Sani further laments that, Dankwambo wouldn’t have organized tomorrow’s rally if he’s spending from his hard-earned resources rather than dipping hands into the government’s accounts because the rally is unnecessary as even Atiku Abubakar who won the PDP’s primaries didn’t hold any rally.
“It is a sheer act of profligacy and financial impropriety for a candidate who came fifth to conduct any such rally’’ he said.
In a release made available to newsmen, Hon Musa stated his displeasure on the convention and emphasized the need to reject Dankwambo’s profligate legacies.
‘’I’m privy to a purported rally scheduled to hold tomorrow in Gombe to welcome Dankwambo who is coming back to the state after his loss in the recent PDP Convention held in Port Harcourt where he emerged fifth out of the 12 contenders but it’s astonishing and amounts to a waste of the state’s scarce resources to organize a rally for a loser even when the winner doesn’t see the need to do so. We the good people of the Gombe State will ensure that, we wrest power from the PDP come 2019. This will serve to show Mr Dankwambo that our people reject his anointed candidate who only visits Gombe during political season.’’
Recall that Dankwambo, an incumbent governor of Gombe State, alongside his Sokoto State counterpart Aminu Waziri Tambuwal were the only two sitting governors who contested the PDP’s presidential primary which held in Port Harcourt. While the former came second Dankwambo was fifth.
