In the run up to the Senatorial Election rescheduled to February 23, 2019, Gombe State governor, Dr. Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo has asked his teeming supporters across Gombe North Senatorial District not to be deterred by the postponement of the election from February 16, 2019. “Let us keep on counting the days to victory, Insha Allah”, said Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo.
The local governments of Gombe, Kwami, Funakaye Dukku and Nafada that constitute Gombe North Senatorial District, have been sensitized to remember that it is just around the corner at the weekend.
Running for Gombe Central Senatorial seat on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP is Nasiru Nono, Honourable Speaker of the Gombe State House of Assembly. This is some upward movement for the ebullient Speaker who has managed the affairs of the House of Assembly amongst members, in relationship with the Executive and the generality of the citizens.
Hoisting the PDP flag for the Gombe South Senatorial seat is Binta Bello, an ‘Amazon’ in the House of Representatives. She is the Deputy Minority Whip in the House of Representatives and the only female in the line-up of principal officers of the eighth assembly. Hon. Binta Bello represents Kaltungo/Shongom Federal constituency of Gombe State.
She is described as pleasant and soft-spoken and a good debater, believing that politics is about service to humanity. Moving to the Senate is an upward movement for her.
