Gombe Speaker Dismantles Borehole after Election Loss

0

The Speaker of the Gombe State House of Assembly, Mr. Inuwa Garba, has allegedly dismantled a borehole he sank in Garin Bappi, Yamaltu-Deba Local Government Area of the state, after losing his return during the last general elections.
Inuwa, a former chairman of the Conference Speakers of Nigeria, it was learnt, had reached a deal with the people of the area to vote for him after sinking the borehole.
However, after the election, it was gathered that Inuwa, who stood for the elections under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) only secured fifteen votes from the village, as against his rival in the All Progressive Congress (APC) Alhaji Abubakar Sadiq, who secured more votes and even won the election for the Yamaltu West State Constituency.
A resident in the community who confided in our correspondent disclosed that “following the defeat of the speaker at the poll, he shamefully ordered irate youths to vandalise the borehole in the community.”
Other neighbouring communities, who enjoyed the services of the borehole were said to have called on the member-elect, Alhaji Abubakar Sadiq Ibrahim, to, as a matter of urgency, assist in restoring the borehole since Garba was no longer interested in alleviating the sufferings of his people.
All efforts to get the Garba’s views on the issue was unsuccessful.
