Nigeria: Gombe Gov Attends ECWA Youth Conference, Donates N10 Million To Support Programme

Gombe State Governor, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, Thursday attended the International Youth Fellowship Conference of the Evangelical Church Winning All, ECWA, at Kaltungo.

The triennial conference, tagged ‘Kaltungo 2023’ with the theme ‘Occupy till I Come’, was well attended by youths of ECWA church across the 36 States of Nigeria, Republic of Benin, Chad and Cameroon.

While commending the organizers for bringing the event to Gombe State, Governor Inuwa described the theme as apt and in tandem with all the developmental programmes going on in the state geared towards making lives better for the citizens, especially the youths.

Governor Inuwa noted that the event underscores the peace and unity existing in Gombe which has earned the state the status of the safest State in North East.

“Gombe State is not just a peaceful State, we also take care of all diversity issues. You can see that I am a Muslim, the Deputy Governor is a Christian. We have an Igbo man as a member of the State Cabinet and a Youruba man as Chairman of Gombe State Sports Commission. We just swore in a female Chief Judge for Gombe State today and here with me is also a female member of the House of Assembly. The interest of everybody is well protected in this State”, Governor Inuwa said proudly.

The Governor also praised the leadership of ECWA for the leading roles they have played in education development and health care services.

Governor Inuwa also used the occasion to talk on some of the giant strides of his administration and the achievements recorded, saying so far in Kaltungo LGA alone and Gombe South in general, his government has executed numerous projects in education, health, road infrastructure among others.

He solicited for prayers of the ECWA for the progress and development of Gombe State and the peaceful conduct of the forthcoming elections.

The Governor announced the donation of 10 million Naira to support the ECWA programme and also launched the gospel musical album with an undisclosed amount of money and ordered distribution of copies to all attendees.

The Guest Speaker, Rev. Dr. Isaac Laudarji in his presentation, admonished the youths to get involved in all fields of human endeavors. He said they should not limit themselves to white collar jobs, but look into agriculture, education, transportation, engineering and politics among others.

” Don’t say politics is for bad people. It is only when you get involved in your wards and local governments that the nation will be exalted as written in the Holy Book.

The ECWA leadership expressed gratitude to Governor Inuwa for his physical attendance and constant support to the Christian Community and ECWA in particular. “We are grateful for His Excellency’s presence at our conference and the financial support. It is our sincere prayer that God Almighty will continue to guide and protect you and your cabinet”.
