Aliyu Haidar Abubakar, the son of first female President of the Appeal Court, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa has joined the Gombe governorship race.
He is seeking to succeed Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo, a People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant.
Abubakar who is running on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), submitted his nomination form at the APC national secretariat yesterday.
Abubakar told newsmen that his youthful age and fresh leadership ideas stands him out among other contestants.
He said: “The tragic and appalling level of governance in Gombe state demands a youthful leadership greatly imbued with charisma, foresight and vision.
“My aspiration and fervent dream to pilot the affairs of the state and take it to the promised land is altruistic and noble.
“This is the time to change the Gombe narrative for good. It’s time the state takes its rightful position in the comity of states across the federation.
“It is sad that we are still at a crossroads, while sister states have become model for accelerated growth and progress in all facets of human endeavours.
“A new dawn awaits Gombe if I am elected next year. I will definitely raise the bar of exemplary, accountable and service leadership.”
