- Deputy governors across the 36 states have been advised not to compete with their governors
- Advising his colleagues, the deputy governor of Gombe state, Jatau, said competition leads to crisis
- The deputy governor also called on the press to support new Gombe administration by being fair in their reportage
Manasah Daniel Jatau has enjoined fellow deputy governors to complement their state governors instead of competing with them in order to avoid rancor and smoothen their relationships for the common good.
The Sun reports that the deputy governor of Gombe state said the role of a deputy governor is to complement not to compete, adding that competition is beginning to affect and cause conflicts between organisations and institutions like the press as well as security apparatus in the country.
Legit.ng gathered that the deputy governor also called on the press to support new Gombe administration by being fair in their reportage.
Speaking on the role of communication, the deputy governor said: “You have the bigger advantage of knowing what is happening in society; so we expect you to help us with information that could help build and develop Gombe state."
The chairperson of the Gombe state correspondents chapel, Hajara Leman, had earlier called on the deputy to carry journalists along by sharing first hand information and plans for the development of the state.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the newly-sworn-in governor of Gombe state Inuwa Yahaya, reversed all the administrative activities of his predecessor Ibrahim Dankwambo in the past weeks.
Yahaya who announced suspension all appointments, contracts and allocations by the state and local government councils as from March 10, stressed that there were a lot of illegalities by the immediate past administration of Ibrahim Dankwambo.
