Gombe: Governor Inuwa Yahaya’s Approach to Environmental Conservation

Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya approved the conduct of a monthly mandatory general sanitation exercise in Gombe state, Nigeria.

In a statement conveying the approval, the administration of Governor Inuwa Yahaya said the introduction of the exercise was aimed at providing a conducive, sustainable and healthy environment for human habitation.

Accordingly, the exercise is expected to be observed by members of the public on the last Saturday of every month. This approval of a monthly sanitation exercise yet again demonstrates the unwavering commitment of Governor Inuwa Yahaya to addressing the teething challenges associated with the environment. Perhaps a trip down memory lane may just paint vivid picture of the premium the present administration in Gombe State attaches to the wellbeing of the environment.

For instance on assumption into office in 2019, Governor Inuwa Yahaya launched an ambitious project known as the Gombe Goes Green (3G). Under the 3G project, the government, through a coordinating agency, projected and implemented a massive tree planting campaign aimed at halting desert encroachment and other negativities linked to the absence of trees.

Today, Gombe State Government under the visionary leadership of Governor Inuwa Yahaya has made good its promise by successfully planting a minimum of four million trees across the State. This development has led to hitherto barren fields and streets now adorned with vegetational cover.

Little wonder that the administration of Governor Inuwa Yahaya in partnership with the defunct NEWMAP and AcreSal signed some multi billion naira contract to tame two monstrous gullies ravaging the lives and livelihood of the people.

First it was the Gombe State University-Malam Inna- Kagarawal gully erosion control work which has since been completed. Secondly is the ongoing 21 kilometres stretch of gully erosion control works which traverses through the Federal College of Education Technical Gombe, Wuro Kesa, Wuro Ladde, Malam Inna and Kagarawal.

The latest effort by Governor Inuwa Yahaya to introduce a monthly sanitation exercise will gradually but surely instill the people of the State the culture of taking responsibility over the environment in which they live and seek their daily bread.

The challenge of environmental degredation and the gradual loss of natural habitats occasioned by the impact of climate change and global warming, presupposes an urgent, coordinated and a multi layered approach such as the ones being orchestrated by the Inuwa Yahaya’s administration to cushion the devastating impact and save humanity from existential threats.

As an established fact, the environment is critical to the survival of both plants and animals but the survival of these living organism is dependent on how well the people relate with the environment be it at individual, group or governmental levels.
