Gombe State governor, Hassan Dankwambo has blamed the federal government’s economic team’s insensibility for the nation’s economic woes. He blamed them for the hardships being faced by Nigerians.
Dankwambo made the assessment in Jalingo, Taraba State during his condolence visit to Gov Darius Ishaku and the speaker of the state assembly, Hon Peter Abel Diah over the recent kidnap and murder of Hosea Ibi, a member of the State House of Assembly.
He said Nigerians are exposed to unnecessary sufferings due to the inability of the government to take the right steps in reviving the nation’s economy.
But he applauded the military and President Muhammadu Buhari for the progress made in the ongoing war against Boko Haram in the northeast.
He commiserated with the governor and the Speaker of the state Assembly over the recent gruesome murder of a lawmaker, Hosea Ibi and the various herdsmen attacks in Taraba state.
Dankwambo urged Tarabans to live together in peace and harmony. He lauded Gov Darius Ishaku’s efforts in ending the skirmishes, and his modest achievements in the state in the face of dwindling finances.
Responding, Gov Ishaku described the visit as timely, explaining that the task of providing security was becoming more challenging.
He advocated for state police to help governors tackle security challenges in their domains.
