Also present to witness the presentation of the Emir’s message, was the immediate past Governor of Bauchi State, Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar.

The former Bauchi State Governor who noted that his appearance was not political, stated that it was because of his relationship with the Gombe Royal Family.

He said they were sent by the Emir because the Emir has seen the Governor’s excellent performance in Gombe State.

A member of the delegation, Mohammad Kabiru Ahmed, former Director General of Pencom and current chairman of Polaris Bank, said “the Emir has seen what you’ve done and work is ongoing in the area of health, education, roads and erosion control where we have witnessed reduced destruction of houses due to flooding.”

According to him, the Emir has been open to advice and that is why they were convinced to bring the message. He also added that their coming was not political.

He then called on a courtier from the Palace of the Emir of Gombe, Alhaji Usman Adamu to deliver the Emir’s message saying “We’ve been asked to deliver a message from the Emir and the Sallaman Gombe, (Alhaji Usman Adamu) will present the address.”

The Sallaman Gombe, Alhaji Usman Adamu, whose job was to simply make the pronouncement, said “the Emir of Gombe, Alhaji Abubakar Shehu Abubakar, has asked us to come to you with a message that you have been honoured with the traditional title of ‘Dan-majen Gombe’.”

A Senior member from the Governor’s extended family, Alhaji Mohammed Bello Umaru, gave the thanks on behalf of the family (lineage).

After giving a historical background of their lineage in Gombe and their relationship with the Emirate since the time of Late Emir Haruna, he said they have remained peaceful and grew up to find their parents in a peaceful relationship with the Emirate.

He expressed happiness that their brother is honoured with a traditional title in Gombe Emirate.
