A group, coalition of Gombe youths for All progressive Congress (APC), has expressed gratitude to a gubernatorial aspirant in the state, Alhaji Faruk Bamusa (Sarkin Arewan Gombe) for doling out the sum of 40 million naira as Sallah largess to the executives of the party at all levels in the state.
Speaking to newsmen in Gombe over the weekend, the leader of the group, Arch. Umar J, who said the gesture was commendable, noted that Bamusa is the most qualified and credible candidate to fly the APC’s flag to victory in the upcoming election in the State.
He said apart from his acceptability at the grassroot, he is reknown brand both within and outside the state.
He urged the party leadership in the state to learn a lesson from the past to see APC on the road to victory, stressing that Bamusa is the only strong candidate that can guarantee that victory.
“’APC in Gombe State need a very strong, acceptable and credible candidate with an intimidating political capital to take the party to the path of victory in the 2019 gubernatorial election and Faruk Bamusa have all it takes to be there, we shouldn’t repeat the mistake of the past where in 2015 elections despite the sweeping tide of our great party, we lost the gubernatorial contest in Gombe to PDP simply because of the nature of the candidate we field in the election”
It would be recalled barely two days to the last Sallah, Faruk Bamusa, donated the cash at the party secretariat, saying it was his contribution towards supporting the party officials to celebrate the Eid-el-Kabir.
According to him, the party being an opposition party in the state, the leadership desire all the necessary support to enable them meet up with the challenges of sustaining the party.
