- Governor Dankwambo promised to end killings in Nigeria if elected president
- The Gombe governor said he would use the same measure used in his state
- He sympathised with the people of Adamawa for the recent tragedy that occurred
Gombe state governor and a Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential aspirant, Ibrahim Dankwambo, has expressed determination to end all forms of tribal and religious killings across the country, if elected president in 2019.
Dankwambo disclosed this in a statement signed by Ayoade Adewopo, director of media and publicity of his campaign organisation, in Abuja, on Monday, September 17.
The governor sympathised with the victims of a recent attack in Gon, Nzumosu, Bolki, Nyanga and Bukuto villages in Numan LGA of Adamawa state, where a Lutheran priest and 51 other were reportedly killed.
He said that if given the mandate to rule Nigeria in 2019, the holistic approach he used in handling security issues in Gombe home state would be replicated nationwide.
“I will end tribal and religious killings as president. I have had the privilege through good leadership to keep Gombe state a safe haven for all its citizens and residents.
“The same will be replicated in Nigeria, as a whole if I am given the opportunity to become the Chief Security Officer, the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces and president of the country.
“Today, I emphatise with the governor and the good people of Adamawa state over the nonsensical killings by terrorists of a Lutheran priest and 51 others in Gon, Nzumosu, Bolki, Nyanga and Bukuto villages in Numan LGA, Adamawa state. Together we must restore Nigeria,’’ he stated.
NAIJ.com had reported that Dankwambo said he would provide solutions to the socio-economic challenges facing Nigeria if elected president in the 2019 election.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Dankwambo disclosed this in a statement issued by the director, media and publicity of his campaign organisation, Ayoade Adewopo, in Abuja.
Dankwambo currently on the consultation tour to Cross Rivers and Akwa Ibom states, according to the statement, said his tract records in the financial sector of the country would facilitate his presidency.
He advocated that what Nigeria currently needs was the right leadership, with capacity to bring all expertise on board.
