Gombe and Taraba State are the only two states in the North East Nigeria that are still under the control of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP.
Although Dankwambo won his second term as Governor -elect under the banner of the PDP but Mariya has said that over 1000 letters have been handed over to her from different people to the Governor as a reminder to fulfil his promised and decamp to APC, the popular party at the grass root.
Mariya while fielding questions from journalists on Monday on her decision to Trek from about 42klm told news men that, she took the decision based on the Governor Dankwambo’s good governance which is based on his policy of people oriented projects, calling on other governors in the North East to emulate him in area of masses transformation projects.
She explained that even though she is not a Politician but as a stakeholder in Nigeria projects the Governor of Gombe state needs to be applauded for the giant strides made in areas of developmental projects that touched the lives of the common man.
Meanwhile Mariya Balan Kundi who will be the first woman in the north east to participate in the new system of trekking to congratulate elected politicians by some Nigerians is expected to leave Yola on Tuesday 19th 2015 as early as 7am.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
