Bra-Bra Solidarity Youths Alliance has called on Governor of Yobe state, Alhaji Ibrahim Gaidam, to contest as Yobe Zone ‘A’ senatorial seat in 2019.
The group, who visited the Speaker Yobe State House of Assembly, Adamu Dala Dogo, to present their demand, said Governor Gaidam has done enough to justify call for him to represent them at the National Assembly.
The Secretary-General of the Alliance, Comrade Lawan Garba, told the Speaker that the group opted to call on the governor to contest because of his interest for youth adding that Gaidam has done more for the youths than any other governor.
“After considering his achievements, the majority of youth across the seven local governments of the constituency, have appealed to Gov. Gaidam to get set to further represent them in the senate in 2019”, Lawan said and pleaded with the Speaker to convey their position to the governor.
Meanwhile, the Speaker lauded them for conducting themselves in an orderly manner noting that no meaningful development would be achieved without addressing the welfare of youth in the community.
He applauded the youths and promised to deliver their message to Ibrahim Gaidam.
