There was a clash on Thursday, August 27, as Governor Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe state and his predecessor, Ibrahim Dankwambo, locked horn over Gombe Mega Park project.
In what began as a renewal of political feud between the two state leaders, Governor Yahaya claimed the responsibility for the completion of the long-abandoned park project.
But in a swift reaction, Yahaya’s predecessor Dankwambo said his administration completed the project contrary to the claim made by the governor.
Speaking to pressmen through a phone call, the former Gombe governor told Yahaya to learn the art of governance from him.
He also warned the governor from “framing excuses for his inadequacies” and described the legal action threats by Yahaya as a sound from an empty barrel.
Earlier, Governor Yahaya had said he would not spare his predecessor should he be found guilty of using the uncompleted mega park project which began in 2012 to siphon public funds during his administration.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that despite political differences, President Muhammadu Buhari approved the naming of the railway complex in Agbor, the operational hub of Itakpe-Warri rail line, after his predecessor Goodluck Jonathan.
Rotimi Amaechi, minister of transportation, made this confirmation on Saturday, July 18, through a tweet by the presidential aide, Tolu Ogunlesi.
Amaechi also said the project is ready for commissioning, adding that priority of the Warri-Itakpe rail corridor remains prioritizing the movement of goods especially since the rail line passes through Ajaokuta.
In a related development, President Buhari said he strongly believed that local production and patronage of Nigerian made goods and services will empower citizens and give them viable opportunities to excel.
Buhari expressed this conviction on Thursday, August 13, during the virtual commissioning of the Nigerian Content Tower, a project of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) in partnership with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), in Bayelsa.
