Relishing Inuwa Yahaya’s 2021 Leadership and Vanguard Newspapers’ Governor of the Year Awards. By Ismaila Uba Misilli .

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.”

–Aristotle, Greek Philosopher

The utility of the above summation by the great Aristotle emphasizes the need for political leaders to, above all, recognize the prime essence of performance and excellence for posterity while in public office rather than being consumed by the flame and obsession of politics. This is indeed the disposition of Gombe State Governor, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya ( Dan Majen Gombe)

It is a well known fact that every where in the world, awards are given to individuals who have distinguished themselves either as leaders or professionals in their chosen fields of endeavours. These recognitions or awards as the case may be, are usually conferred on personalities not just for the fun of it but as a means of encouraging them in what can best be described as “To whom much is given much is expected”.

Since coming into office more than two and half years ago, Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya has received so many awards, accolades and recognitions from different reputable national and International bodies, including some famous national dailies such as Business Day, Blueprint and Daily Indendent newspapers among others. The list of these awards is endless.

However, two of the most recent awards bestowed on Governor Inuwa Yahaya readily come to mind. These awards are the ones by Leadership newspaper which recognised the Gombe State Governor as the 2021 Leadership Governor of the Year and Vanguard newspaper which declared Inuwa Yahaya as its 2021 Personality of the Year under governors category. Both high profile recognitions came almost in quick succession in brazen admittance of Governor Inuwa’s giant strides in the social, economic and infrastructural development of the State.

So what are these clinical deliverables that the two National Dailies saw in Governor Inuwa Yahaya to warrant the honours. For Leadership newspaper, the award was premised on the Governor’s leadership acumen which has always been tailored towards repositioning Gombe State on the path of sustainable economic growth, rebuilding the state’s decrepit infrastructure, constructing roads with spread across the state, providing job opportunities for youths and women as well as empowering the people of the State with his agricultural transformation agenda. Leadership newspaper recalled that on assuming office on May 29, 2019, Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya (Dan Majen Gombe) was not new to the challenges facing the now 25-year-old state, having meritoriously served as the state’s commissioner for finance and economic development. He left no one in doubt that he already had his job well cut out for him: to propel Gombe State towards the path of rapid development. The accountant and pragmatic leader was burning in an unquenchable desire to deliver on his campaign promises. The National tabloid remarked that true to the people’s hopes, the governor has not disappointed them. Governor Yahaya, according to the national daily, has brought his vision, passion, humanity, pedigree, and above all, his dexterity and Midas touch to bear on governance in the state’s socio-economic landscape. Across the 11 local government areas of the state, there is a congruence of opinion that Governor Inuwa is indeed the right man for the job. He has so far met the expectations of the people through his visionary leadership. Within two and half years of his being in office, even his staunch critics would not hesitate to disavow their rather ill-informed criticisms of the Gombe State government on his watch. The cumulative effect of Governor Yahaya’s prudence, leadership character and credibility is the coming of various development partners to the state, and the results are so far remarkable. Gombe is now the best state in the ease of doing business in Nigeria and has been adjudged the safest and most peaceful state in the North-East geopolitical zone of the country.

As for Vanguard newspaper, the tabloid recalled that after about 25 years of existence, Gombe State, the Jewel in the Savannah, is now clearly set on the path of a new dawn under a transformational leadership of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya. The current administration which ushered in the new era is barely two and half years old when the impact of transformational leadership began to gain traction while Vanguard Newspapers findings show strong foundation for a sustained growth across the socio-economic landscape of the state in the medium to long term. Vanguard maintained that most governance analysts have often excused many governments’ failures on the premise of the impact of COVID-19 on the national and sub- national economies, but Gombe seems to have created a different narrative; that challenges berth creativity and ultimately superlative performance. According to Vanguard Newspaper, Governor of the Year awards go to few selected state governors that managed to distinguish themselves in the circumstances of the operating environment.
For Gombe the environmental circumstances were even more daunting, judging from the obviously difficult financial and socio-political liabilities inherited by the Inuwa Yahaya administration. Vanguard Newspaper findings show that upon assumption of office, the administration was confronted with a treasury in distress, burdened with about N124 billion in Loans/Bonds, Pension/Gratuity arrears and contractors’ liabilities.

The fiscal stress could be gleaned from the recurrent obligations amounting cumulatively to about N900.4million monthly to service the liabilities. But the administration has gone ahead to demonstrate determination to achieve positive results. It is the usual practice for new administrations in Nigeria’s governance space to abandon uncompleted projects inherited from previous administration, especially if the new administration is not an extension of the previous. But Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya chose the road less travelled. Determined to salvage and possibly turn-around the tax payers’ money into viable assets, the administration embarked on completing those projects.

Already, the Mega Motor Park is costing the state about N3billion to complete and when Vanguard Newspaper visited the location, extensive work was ongoing to get the park ready for commissioning. The project was one of the several of such that compelled the current administration to draw up a well thought out robust financial plan to deal with the fiscal implications. Prior to the advent of the current administration, the 11 local government areas of the state had to borrow N1.3billion monthly to pay salaries. Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya administration had, within the first three months of its coming into office, stabilised the LGAs financially and are now able to pay their salaries and pensions as at when due on their own. At the backdrop of the foot-dragging that have marked the implementation of the minimum.

Governor Inuwa Yahaya also believes a good network of roads is critical to the economic revival and development of the state. Being an agrarian state in spite of the ongoing ambitious work to industrialize the state, we have come to see a new Gombe where the various parts are now well linked up via good roads, starting from the initial Network 11-100 Project, (100 kilometers of roads in each of the 11 local governments) to the mega revolution in the construction of over 150 other strategic roads across the state till date.

Some of the road projects include: the 25km Billiri-Gujba road, the 15km Sabonlayi-Ayaba road, the 15km Ladongor-Fubawure road, the 17km Kumo-Kalshingi road, the 10km Kutare- Mona road, the 10km Kundulum-Mallam Inna- Kurba road and the16km Marraraban-Jarkwami- Daniya roads as well as the Industrial Cluster road networks. These projects, Vanguard learnt, have since been completed and are being enjoyed by the people. Other road projects being completed by the present administration under the same funding arrangement include Dukku-Kalam-Dokoro, Dukku-Jamari, Bambam-Tula-Yiri, Kwanar-Rugaji- Kuka-Bakwai-Galgaldu and Bajoga township roads, among others. The Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya administration also initiated and completed the 15.2km Jabba- Garin Wada, the 21km Degri-Talasse and 16km Malala–Dukkuyel regional roads with the same funding. These are aside the township road projects in Gombe metropolis. Vanguard also learnt that over 340 classroom blocks have either been constructed or renovated and equipped with modern teaching and learning materials. The government has also succeeded in ensuring the total overhaul of our 114 Primary Healthcare Centres, PHCs, across 114 wards in the state. So also the Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management Project/ World Bank, NEWMAP/WB, erosion control project for N2.9billion has already been completed and has greatly assisted in reducing the menace of erosion and flooding in the state capital especially in the Gombe State University to Mallam Inna area. The provision of ultra-modern solar powered street lights on all roads – both double and single lanes – covering over 114km of roads, is another giant stride by the Inuwa Yahaya led administration.

At present, a new N1.8billion General Hospital is under construction in Kumo, while three other hospitals are being renovated and upgraded. These include those in Bajoga, Kaltungo and Kuri. It is the desire of the Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya administration to bequeath a better and more economically viable State.

The justification by the two national dailies to have the name of the Gombe State Governor engraved in thier respective halls of fame is not only systematic but pragmatic given the Governor’s legendary leadership disposition to place Gombe State on the path of sustainable social economic and infrastructural development.

Health: X-Raying Governor Inuwa Yahaya’s Mid-Term Score Card

By Yakubu E. Bayambe

I find it absolutely expedient to interrogate the mid-term score card of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya given the long list of accomplishments attributed to his administration which I find rather unbelievable to swallow at face value. However, the long list of the milestones contained in the mid-term score card accompanied by pictorial evidence makes it almost impossible for me to look the other way or harbour any form of doubts in my mind as to its veracity. While I clearly understand the place of propaganda and make belief in our local politics, I therefore made it a point of duty to deligently unravel the truth about these projects juxtaposing them with the Governor’s campaign promises and what is contained therein in the mid-term score card.

On the whole, Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya had while campaigning for the coveted seat in the State, made the following observations: “We noted the majority of people in the eleven Local Government Areas of Gombe State do not have access to quality health services due to inadequate infrastructure and lack of basic medical equipment and manpower”. Consequent upon that, the Governor promised to “Proactively implement strategies to achieve universal health coverage in Gombe State using primary health care as the cornerstone by increasing access to efficient, qualitative and affordable healthcare services and ensuring availability of essential drugs and vaccines throughout the State. Today, through the 11 point campaign manifesto of Governor Inuwa Yahaya for the health sector, a lot has been achieved and a vast majority of the people of the State believe that there has been a noticeable improvement in the provision of quality healthcare facilities and services, especially during the last two and half years. It is instructive to state at this juncture that, of the 11 points campaign promises to holistically revitalize the health sector, the administration of Governor Inuwa Yahaya has been able to deliver up to 10, while only one is ongoing. For example the Governor promised to revitalize at least one Primary Health Care Centres in each of the 114 political wards of the State to deliver quality health care to the people at the grassroots level. Today that promise has not only been fulfilled but surpassed, especially with the upgrade, remodeling and modernization of the State Specialist Hospital as well the general hospitals in Bajoga, Kumo and Kaltungo towns, representing the 3 senatorial districts.

Some other promises that have already been delivered by the administration of Governor Inuwa Yahaya include: Free maternal, new-born and child health care services to the less- previledged and vulnerable people in the State. This, the Government was able to achieve through the enrolment of twenty five thousand five hundred hundred and sixty five individuals, including women and children into the Basic Healthcare Provision Fund. The present administration in Gombe State is equally being consistent in the payment of counterpart funds to donor and partner projects in the State where required. The Gombe State Government under the leadership of Governor Inuwa Yahaya has also increased and strengthened collaboration cum commitment with multilateral, bilateral, national and international organisations through new partnerships to strengthen the health care system in the State. Aside from transforming the State Specialist Hospital into a model and reference point for similar facilities across the country, the Gombe State Government has also facilitated the commencement of internship training for graduate Doctors.

Perhaps, one of the fulfilled campaign premises that has so far endeared so many citizens of Gombe State was the provision of financial protection against catastrophic health expenditures through the creation of a contributory health insurance scheme and community based health insurance for the informal sector in the State. This, the Governor was able to achieve through the establishment of the Gombe State Contributory Health Scheme, popularly referred to as GoHealth.

Other landmark achievements by the administration of Governor Inuwa Yahaya include, but not limited to, the establishment of the Hospital Service Management Board for the effective management of secondary health facilities in the State and strengthening the activities of the Gombe State Primary Health Care Development Agency through increased funding. Suffice it to say that the transformation witnessed in the health sector in Gombe State is to say the least, mind blowing given the limited resources at the disposal of the present administration occasioned by the novel Coronavirus and the general economic meltdown. It is however no longer news that the challenges inherent in the health sector in Nigeria are multi-faceted and have continued to be a subject of intense scrutiny given Government huge expenditure in the sector on one hand, and the continuous medical tourism the country has continually witnessed on the other. The leadership sagacity and dexterity so far exhibited by Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya towards repositioning the health sector for effective and efficient service delivery is indeed noble and heartwarming, particularly at a time when health matters are fast, but steadily occupying the agenda at the local, national and international arenas.

A Peep Into Governor Inuwa Yahaya’s Mid-Term Score Card: Education Sector In Focus.

By Yakubu Bayambe

Throughout human history, the concept of development- whether social, economic or infrastructural- has been a subject of intense debate and interest, especially in our clime. Since the return of Nigeria to democracy in 1999, the country has witnessed several attempts by successive administrations aimed at short, medium and long term social, economic and infrastructural development. But whether these efforts towards repositioning the country for optimal performance, and more importantly to the benefit of Nigerians is anything to write home is entirely a topic for another day. However the overwhelming election of Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya as Governor of Gombe State in 2019, leaves no one in doubt of his capacity to immediately but effectively turn around the fortunes of the State for the overall good of all, moreso that his incredible performance as the Commissioner of Finance and Economic Development during the then administration of Danjuma Goje further gives credence to his administrative acumen and leadership sagacity.

At the onset of his administration, the policy concepts and direction of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya were clear, realistic and multi disciplinary; given the wide range of consultations through committees made up of seasoned technocrats to discern on what must constitute the immediate and long term developmental needs of the people.

To begin with, the Governor, through the submissions made by the various committees set up by him declared a State of emergency on the Education sector to redeem the ailing sector considered to be the life wire of any meaningful human progress. Irked by the sorry state of the sector on assumption into office, Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya had while addressing an enlarged stakeholders meeting to articulate his sweeping reforms on Education made the following remarks: “When we came into office on May 29, 2019, I made it categorically clear that the present state of the Education sector in Gombe State was totally unacceptable. We met and Education system that was ravaged by inadequate and decayed infrastructure, large number of out of School children, absence of instructional materials and basic facilities as well as a teaching workforce that was poorly trained and ill- motivated. For years Gombe State continued to sit at the bottom of the National Education ranking like the National Common Entrance Examination the WAEC or NECO. Through concerted effort we declared a State of Emergency in the education sector and deployed a multi-disciplinary approach to deal with our educational challenges. On one hand we rolled out the Better Education Service Delivery for All, BESDA project in order to mop up out of School children and increase basic literacy and numeracy on the other hand, we ramped up investment in school infrastructure by renovating over four hundred schools through the effort of the State Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB in conjunction with the Universal Basic Education Commission, UBEC. Our administration understands that there will be no improvement in education outcome without commensurate improvement in the quality and capacity of our teaching staff. It is in this regard that we set up the Teachers Resource Centre at Kwami which is the first of its kind in the North East sub-region. The Centre will help in training, retraining and upgrading the capacity of our Teachers for effective learning and better service delivery”. The above remarks by Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya Summed up and further reinforced his nine (9) point campaign promises for the Education sector which are as follows: Increase budgetary allocation to the sector to enhance learning outcome; vigorously implement the policy of free and compulsory Universal Basic Education; Pursue a comprehensive teacher training and retraining programme for effective service delivery and enhance the welfare of teachers through prompt payment of salaries and improve allowances. Others are provide critical learning facilities and equipment in all Primary and Secondary schools in the State; strengthening guidance, counselling and mentoring units in schools; Improve and ensure regular payment of students bursary allowances to indigenous students of tertiary institutions; Significantly increase funding to the two State Universities and other State owned tertiary institutions and Increase access to and judicious utilisation of educational funding from Federal Agencies, International Donors and NGOs.

The mid term score card of Governor Inuwa Yahaya reveals that of these campaign promises for the Education sector, his administration was able to fully deliver five while the remaining four are ongoing, with appreciable progress. For instance on teachers training which is sine quo non to effective teaching and learning, the administration of Governor Inuwa Yahaya has established a state-of-the- art Teacher Resource Centre in Kwami which is currently providing regular comprehensive training of teachers across the State. On free and compulsory education, the Gombe State Government through the Better Education Service Delivery for All BESDA has since mopped up over three hundred thousand out of School children and established 676 non-formal girl- child and Almajiri learning centres. Furthermore, the Gombe State Government under the leadership of Governor Inuwa Yahaya constructed/renovated and fully equipped 584 classrooms in 156 schools across the State, it equally provided over 30, 000 students with furnitures in various schools and informal learning centres. The Government also drilled boreholes and built VIP toilets in selected schools across the 11 Local Government Areas of the State, this is in addition to the systematic renovation and upgrade of five legacy schools to special schools. Similarly in the last few years of the administration of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, the Education sector has seen an increase in budgetary allocation by more than 50%. This has led to an improved learning outcome as evidenced in the rapid improvement in students performance especially in the 2020 and 2021 National Examinations. The payment of bursary to students of Gombe State origin was another area the Gombe State Government has been given adequate attention. To this day, the administration of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya has paid over one hundred and nineteen million in students bursary and still counting.

Today the Education sector in Gombe State has substantially been revamped as indicators now show a considerable increase in School enrollment, literacy, numeracy and positive learning outcomes.

For the administration of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, the mid-term score card is an expose of his campaign promises and whether or otherwise the Governor has been able to work the talk.

For keen observers and ardent followers of the Governor’s policies and programmes in the State, particularly those who are previledged to peruse through the Mid-Term report, the Governor’s performance is nothing short of a credit mark.
