He said, “I was involved in the creation of Gombe State. One has not been happy with what is happening in Gombe, especially in the education sector, one is not happy about it. We still have children in primary and secondary schools having education under the tree and this should not be. It’s affecting our future.

“Gombe is the jewel in the savannah, which means Gombe should be able to feed the nation but unfortunately, we are not making use of it and we have to improve agriculture in the state. In the villages where they are farming, there are no roads we will make sure there are rural roads and rural infrastructure such as Electricity, Water go to the rural areas.
