Best Performing  Governor  In The History Of Nigeria Since 1960

Global Peace Movement International in its avowed quest and determination to highlight champions of democratic deliverables in Nigeria and across the world finds it of imperative option to present and identify with the positive effort of a true champion of democratic dividends to the people.

In recent times, the challenges associated with good governance and the delivering of the positive dividends of democracy to the electorates in Nigeria have become not only widespread and near acceptable, but has  also a source of concern and worry to all.

This is even more so, when emphasis and attention is given to the myriad of stories and information that ceaselessly emanates from the country about the vices and activities of some elected leaders, particularly state governors, about graft, corruption and under development that is brought about to the people, because of these negative vices.

However, in the midst of these economic chaos and rampant negative socio-political under-performance by many of the nations elected officials, a shining light and a true and present example of genuine leadership is emerging to the delight of all, including the Global Peace Movement International.

In northern Nigeria in particular, and the country in general, Alhaji Danjuma Goje, the governor of Gombe State is now being known and referred to as the “Governor amongst Governors”.

This title, by which His Excellency  Danjuma Goje is now known and called, was not earned on a platter of gold. Having judiciously utilized the very little resources that come the way of the state from the allocation of the federal government, Danjuma Goje is in the forefront of positively carving his name in the sand of time.

Firstly, it must be explicitly stated that Gombe is the state in Nigeria that receives the very least amount in terms of allocation that come from the federal government.

For a fact and for the records, between 1999 and 2007, Gombe State was ranked number 36(the very last of all the states) in the order by which the federal government allocates money to the state on a monthly basis.

This is also with the fact that as one of the newest states to be created in the country, the state virtually has no other source of revenue, even internally generated ones, as the vast area of the state is peopled by mostly humble and agrarian folks.

Nevertheless, with world class hospitals to meet the medical needs of the people, Gombe state has become a reference point for all in northern Nigeria and beyond in the way and manner health and related services are to be provided.

Governor Goje has also succeeded in making the provision of qualitative education to the people of the state a priority. This he has achieved through the establishment and equipping of a state university, construction and equipping of state of the art secondary and primary schools across the length of the state, and the paying of all external and internal examination fees for indigent students and pupils in the state.

A befitting and modern airport, alongside low cost houses in their thousands for both civil servants and residents of the state, are also among some the milestones that Goje has recorded as governor of Gombe.

Considering that the terrain, topography and environment of Gombe is a challenging one, with most parts of the state grounded in rocks and stones, the difficulty of such unfriendly environment have not deterred the governor from meeting and surpassing the expectations of the people of the state.

In the areas of road construction and urban development, the Gombe state governor has successfully initiated and completed over 800 kilometers of modern road in various parts of the state.

This effort of the governor in road construction has led to a massive rise in the fortunes of farmers and other economic contributors in the state, as they are now ably to move their produce more easily and affordably to the various points where they are needed.

When placed side by side with some of his colleagues governors, particularly those from the southern and oil rich parts of the country that have almost unlimited access to revenue, Governor Danjuma Goje’s achievements becomes more telling and pronounced, in the light of the resources he has had to work and develop the state with the meager resource available.

Finally, it remains the ever present intention of Global Peace Movement International, to consistently identify and give recognition and award to those that have performed in elected office or position as Governor Danjuma Goje of Gombe state has done, while at the same time highlight those that have not met up with the expectations of the electorate and for the people.
