September 10, (THEWILL) – Gombe State governor, Muhammad Yahaya, has said the chances of APC Presidential Candidate, Bola Tinubu, winning in the North-East region in the 2023 general elections are very high.
Yahaya, who is the North-East Coordinator of the Tinubu Support Organisation, said this on Saturday, in Minna, when he visited ex-Nigerian leaders and retired Generals, Abdulsalami Abubakar and Ibrahim Babangida.
“Our chances in the northeast are very high indeed.
We are strong in our resolve to win the 2023 General Elections and we shall succeed.
“It does not matter that the PDP presidential candidate is from North-East. Both Tinubu and Atiku are my brothers.
”Nigeria is one and we are struggling to maintain it as a united and indivisible country. It doesn’t matter where they come from, what we need is the best for Nigeria”, Yahaya said.
Speaking about his visit to Minna, Yahaya said: “Abdulsalam is our father and elder statesman. Knowing him has been a blessing to us. I came to greet him, as he recovers from his recent ailment. I pray that God will continue to see him through his life. “
He said that Abdulsalam and Babangida were carrying out their duties in guiding and advising the people on how to live together as one, saying that their efforts should be applauded.
Speaking about the state of insecurity across the country, Yahaya said that the state has been able to maintain its peace amidst diversity.
This, he said, was because the people realised their differences early and worked to address them.
“In Gombe, you will find that some families have both Christians and Muslims, it is a cosmopolitan settlement and a small Nigeria.
We realised our differences early on and seek to address them.
We have tried to maintain peace and understanding in the spirit of nationhood and brotherhood”, Yahaya said.
