He said Gombe is a city admire by all northerner, as such , they should not use their collective effort to destroyed it for their children to come and field the impact.
Read his full statement bellow;
“Gombe, let me tell you. The biggest mistake that you will do is to bring unto yourselves religious crisis due to an action of Some scoundrels in uniform.
The Christian community should mourn and bury their deaths in peace. It is a very painful one, but it doesn’t worth a cycle of another pains through actions that may likely spark violent conflicts.
The Muslims community should equally understand and imagine how painful it is to lost someone from the action of a rascal. Hence, should be seen condoling and pacifying the bereaved in words and actions. Identify with the bereaved at this painful moment.
In Jos, we have seen and experienced what is meant to be in a city divided against itself. It is 10 years since when last there was a sustained violent conflict that engulfed the whole city but till today we are experiencing the aftermath of our collective stupidity.
Please Gombawa, your city is fine, it is a model in the north, your economy is great. I like your mutual coexistence where a Tangale, Waja, Cham, Fulani, Bambam, Terawa etc all put the interest of Gombe first than any other… I like that, and I referenced that severally in many platforms to my Plateau brothers.
You guys are a model, don’t strike the matches that will burn down the whole of your city with your own hands, leaving the scar for generations to come.
