Former Governor of Gombe State, Senator Danjuma Goje, has stated that the worst of the governors of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) is better than the best of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Goje who is currently the Chairman, Senate Committee on Appropriation stated over weekend in Abuja after the inauguration of the Gombe state APC Caretaker Committee.
He said this while drawing comparison between the achievements of his state governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo of the PDP and other APC governors, saying his people would prefer the worst of the APC governors to having Dankwambo preside over the affairs of the state.
He also reprimanded the Gombe State PDP government for not considering any APC member in the state worthy for an appointive and elective position.
“I want to urge the new caretaker committee members, in the presence of the party leadership and all of you that came from Gombe, to be neutral, to be objective, to be committed in trying to unite this party.
“I am sure whether you belong to any other group, it is better that you have a bad APC governor than not have a governor at all.
“Even if APC is bad, it is better, because now that it is PDP government none of our members, no APC man has been giving appointment even as a councillor. So, it is very important that we unite and put our differences behind us, move forward to ensure that we form the next government in Gombe State.”
He assured the newly inaugurated APC Caretaker Committee in the state his support and loyalty regardless of the past.
Senator Goje also urged APC party members in the state to remain united and work as one family, adding that the crisis in the state chapter of the party has robbed it of a number of benefits from the Federal Government.
