Organizations, community leaders, others commend Gombe Govt for organizing Peace and Security Summit

Representatives of various organizations, community leaders, strategic stakeholders and resource persons who participated in the 1st Gombe State Peace and Security Summit, which was held in Gombe between 9 and 11 August 2022, have commended the Government of Gombe State under the leadership of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya for convening the summit at the crucial moment of the nation’s history.

This was contained in a communique issued at the end of the summit and signed by AIG Zubairu H. Muazu, mni (rtd), Ubandoman Gombe, Co-convener and Chairman LOC.

According to the communiqué, the Summit resolves that the various initiatives of the Gombe State Government such as the establishment of the Citizenship and Leadership Training Centre, Boltongo, and the creation of GOSTEC are timely and commendable steps that could help further strengthen the current security arrangements in the state.

It added that the summit particularly applauded the government’s zero-tolerance approach to the issue of political thuggery and other social vices (perpetrated by the dreaded Yan Kalare thugs) which culminated in the launching on Tuesday of the security initiative code-named “Operation Hattara”.

The summit also called on the operation to take advantage of the findings and resolutions of the summit, especially in terms of compliance with law and order.

The Summit further condemned the deliberate ethnicization of politics and politicisation of ethnicity which it observes is gradually becoming a general trend in the political process thereby not only deepening our fault lines but also threatening the survival of our democratic system.

Accordingly, the Summit called on religious and political leadership to eschew all forms of divisive politics in the build-up to the 2023 general elections.
