It is also to invest in eco- friendly projects that will contribute to the well being of the citizens and minimize the impact of climate change on their livelihoods.
“We shall be expanding the frontiers of our afforestation programs which our administration has been prosecuting under the Gombe Goes Green project. In addition, we will also pursue the solar energy project which has helped Gombe State tremendously since we embarked on solar energy as an alternative source of power in Gombe State.
