The gubernatorial campaign of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) in Gombe State, has been described the as “the gathering of armature actors and a charade that will not yield any positive result”.
The mockery of the APC campaign was made by the Director General, Media and Publicity Council of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Campaign Organization, Dahiru Hassan Kera while speaking to Journalists shortly after the rally, saying that the gathering was an action in futility as the people of Gombe state know who truly have them at heart.

Dahiru Kera added that the people of the State are good students of history and would not allow themselves to be bamboozled or intimidated by the power of the APC led Federal Government.
According to him, “Our people know those who are truly theirs and their political adversaries, they know Wolves in sheep’s clothing, as such they cannot be cowed or deceived by anybody”.
Hassan Kera further said that the people of Gombe State are a lot wiser and enlightened now than before adding that they know and will not allow politicians with questionable characters, who have ruined the State and entrenched the dreaded Kalare political thugs in the past to deceive them again.
He said, “We weren’t surprised to see the tiny attendance at the APC Gubernatorial flagg-off, people from other States as well as little known faces from Kannywood were the set of people at the Kaltungo event”.
He alerted the people of the State not to allow what he described as “elements with no scruples to come close to power”, stressing that they would definitely abuse it as they did before.
“I’m calling on our people to be mindful of those who bred Kalare political thugs that wrecked havoc on the good people of Gombe State. It took concerted efforts by Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo to neutralize them. What the State needs now is the sustenance of this good gesture”, he emphasized.
Hassan Kera concluded that the people of Gombe will never forget the Kalare thugs that held sway in the State, killing, maiming and robbing innocent people in broad daylight until the coming on board of Governor Dankwambo who liberated the State from their grip.
It would be recalled that the APC recently launched its Governorship campaign in Kaltungo town, Southern zone of the State where the PDP is said to have its strongest base with the Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo, Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, Governors of Adamawa and Bauchi States, Jibrila Bindow and Mohammed Abubakar respectively among many other APC stalwarts within and outside the North-East in attendance.
