Gombe State governor, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, yesterday warned politicians in the state against any act capable of disturbing the peace and security of the state, stressing that the peace and security of the state is non-negotiable.

Addressing the people of the state in a state-wide broadcast on television and radio, Governor Yahaya said the peace and stability of Gombe State is bigger than the political ambition of any individual or group.

“As the political season kicks-off, I implore all stakeholders to play by the rules, embrace peace and eschew political violence and blackmail,” he said.

According to him, his administration is committed, in line with the reforms introduced by President Muhammadu Buhari, to provide a level-playing ground for all parties.

He, however, warned that, “Our commitment to the rule of law and democratic tenets should not be mistaken for timidity.”

“As the chief security officer of the state, I will stand firm and deal decisively with any individual or group seeking to disturb our peace for political gains. The peace and security of our State are non-negotiable. The peace and stability of Gombe State is bigger than the political ambition of any individual or group.”

Noting that the 62nd independence anniversary of Nigeria coincides with the 26th anniversary of the creation of Gombe State, the governor said: “From relative obscurity, Gombe has risen to become one of the fastest developing states in Nigeria, surpassing its peers and predecessors. Twenty-Six years down the line, Gombe State has remained faithful to the dreams of its founding fathers.”
