Gombe gov buys vehicles for LG chairmen


Brand new Toyota Hilux vehicle was presented to 11 government chairmen in the state, by Muhammadu Yahaya, the Gombe State Governor.

While performing the ceremony at the Government House, Gombe, Governor Yahaya said the decision to procure the vehicles was necessary to enable the local government for holistic grassroots development.

He said the vehicles were procured to support LGA operations and ensure effective and efficient governance.

These vehicles are not for leisure or luxury; they are for work. They are provided to support the operations of local governments, whose basic responsibility is to look after the welfare and well-being of the people at the grassroots,” the governor said.

He called on the chairmen to use the vehicles to reach all nooks and crannies of their respective local governments in order to improve service delivery to the people, assuring continued monitoring of how resources are utilised for transparent and accountable governance.

We shall not waver in monitoring how you spend your resources as well as how you implement projects that positively impact your people,” he said.

Stressing the importance of the LG, the governor said, “The state government alone cannot do it all. The constitution provides and allocates functions to local governments, which forms the third tier of government and is the closest to the people.”

Abdulkadir Muhammad, the Commissioner for Local Government and Community Development, expressed gratitude to the governor for always supporting local government administration and motivating the chairmen.

Responding on behalf of his colleagues, the Chairman of Gombe LGA and ALGON Chairman, r Sani Haruna, thanked the governor for always supporting them since their inception.

The provision of these brand-new Toyota Hilux vehicles is a challenge to us. We promise never to let you down. We will maintain the vehicles and use them for the intended purpose, towards achieving your administration’s visions and missions,” he said
