The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant in Gombe State, Mr. Jibrin Muhammad Barde, has congratulated Christians in the state for witnessing and celebrating another Easter, with a call that the season should inspire them to new hope, happiness, prosperity, and abundance.
In a statement signed on Sunday by his Media Office, Barde felicitated with them on the successful conclusion of the Lenten season, and enjoined them to come closer to God, and dedicate themselves to virtues that would promote peace, love, unity and added that they should continue to intercede for the state and the country.
He urged them to brace up for the challenges ahead as he is prepared to relieve them of their sufferings and bring about a government with human face that would cater for the interests of both young and old, women and men and the less privileged in the state.
The statement reads in parts:” My good people of Gombe State, I am using this opportunity of the Easter season to reach out to you once again and congratulate you for being alive to celebrate today. I urge you all, especially my Christian brothers and sisters, to pray for God’s intervention on behalf of our state and the country, to surmount the rising insecurity confronting the nation and reflect on the teachings of Christ which epitomizes forgiveness, sacrifice and tolerance.
“I wish to also assure you that things would no longer be the same in the next administration as the PDP is prepared to take over governance in the state at all levels and bring about a new life of ease and comfort. There will be food, water and qualitative education and functional health system in the state under my leadership.”
Barde urged them to safeguard their PVCs and ensure they vote for PDP in the coming elections and assured that he would continue with his philanthropic gestures towards them in making life better for them unlike the insensitivities of the current APC led government in the state.
