The Sardaunan Gombe, Dr. Jamil Isyaku Gwamna, has felicitated with fellow Nigerians and the people of Gombe on the occasion of Nigeria’s 61st independence anniversary as a nation and Gombe’s 25th anniversary as a state.
In a press release signed by Ibrahim Sani Shawai, Media Aide to Sardaunan-Gombe on Friday, the traditional ruler said Nigerians have a lot to celebrate in view of the turbulent and challenging moments that the country had been through yet survived.
According to him, the country and people had remained united, tolerant and patient in the quest to build a greater nation which reflects the genuine wishes of our founding fathers, hence the need for Nigerians to celebrate.
He further said the independence also presented an opportunity for everyone to reflect on how to dig deep into our consciences and find collective solutions to issues that are threatening the peace of the country.
