No electricity in my constituency since 2019 – Gombe lawmaker


Member representing Pero-Chonge Constituency in Gombe State House of Assembly, Samuel Wina, has urged the governor to right the wrongs of the first term following his successful re-election for a second term.

Wina, who defected from All Progressives Congress to Peoples Democratic Party and lost his bid to seek a return to the house after defeat by Golkos Gaji of the All Progressives Congress, said his constituents have been without electricity supply for over three years.

He made this disclosure in a thank you message to his constituents, which also doubles as a congratulatory message to the governor-elect over his triumph in the last election.

He noted that the governor’s emergence was divine, adding that his people have witnessed a dearth of infrastructural development especially in the last four years of Governor Muhammadu Yahaya’s emergence.

Wina said, “In the same vein, I congratulate His Excellency Alhaji Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, on your return for a second term run in office. Your success is indeed an act of God; and also an opportunity to right the wrongs of the first tenure. I also advise that you fulfil all the promises made to our people because if the polls will not judge in the future, then God and posterity definitely will.

“Since your emergence in 2019 Pero Chonge has been without electricity, which is a paramount necessity in this 21st century. You promised township road for Gwandum and rehabilitation/upgrade of our District heads palaces across the Constituency.

“I urge you to complete the Filiya-Gwandum-Gundali Road because they kept faith and voted massively for you (whether under any influence or not).
Furthermore, Pero-Chonge requires at least 2 boarding schools, a well serviced secondary health facility, sources of portable drinking water etc.

“The Galdimaru, Nyualimi and Duduai communities behind the mountain with a population of nearly 10,000 are in dear need of access roads. The good people of Gombe State have hearkened to your pleas, kindly return this gesture.”

The outgoing member assured his constituents that he would operate an open door policy even out of office which he disclosed had been his modus operandi, stressing that he would return stronger.

“To all our teeming supporters, I assure you that we remain resolute in our commitment to the development of our people, in and out of office. Political office has never been a precondition to my contribution to Pero-Chonge, neither will it be in the nearest future.

“My door will always be open to all and sundry as it has always been. The struggle for the liberation of our people is a continuous one -until we are free from political monopoly, nepotism, self aggrandisement and mandate theft, so be rest assured we shall come back stronger.


“I congratulate my brother Gaji Gaius Golkos, on his emergence as the member-elect of the Pero-Chonge constituency. I urge you to realise that your loyalty is first to the people of Pero-Chonge, before even party. I advise you to speak for the weak and the oppressed, be kind and just to everyone, regardless of all differences,” Wina added.
