Governor Yahaya has paid tribute to the fallen heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice in defending the nation’s sovereignty. Laying a wreath alongside top government officials, the Governor expressed gratitude to the military and security agencies for their selfless dedication to maintaining peace.

Represented by Deputy Governor Manassah Daniel Jatau, Ph.D, Governor Yahaya called for collaborative efforts from paramilitary outfits to sustain and support the families of the fallen heroes. Acknowledging the importance of peace, he emphasized the need for collective responsibility in ensuring the well-being of those affected by the sacrifices made for peace.

The Governor noted, “There is no gain saying the fact that peace, peace and peace are of great desire in all human groups, as it is necessary for human activities to thrive.” He highlighted the challenges faced by those who have worked for peace, either losing their lives or facing permanent disabilities, leaving their dependents in distress.

While recognising the contributions of all security agencies to peace in Gombe State, the Governor called for expanded collaboration beyond the military to include police, civil defense, customs, immigration, NDLEA, SSS, and volunteers. He urged residents to cooperate with security personnel, providing timely information to prevent incidents rather than reporting after the fact.
