Governor Inuwa Appoints New Chairman For Gombe Sports Commission
Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya has approved the appointment of Mr. Olanre Daniel (Kangiwan Doma) as Chairman of Gombe State Sports Commission with immediate effect.
In a press release on Wednesday 16th February 2022 signed by the NDLEA Director-General (Press Affairs)Gombe Government House, Ismaila Uba Misilli, he said that the Secretary to the State Government, Professor Ibrahim Abubakar Njodi who conveyed the Governor’s approval, said the decision was sequel to the resignation of the erstwhile Chairman of the Commission, Malam Hamza Adamu Soye.
Soye, had in a letter addressed to the Governor yesterday, through the SSG tendered resignation of his appointment.
It should be noted that Hamza Soye’s decision to relinquish his position is not unconnected with the irreconcilable differences between him and the management of Gombe United Football Club, especially over running the affairs of the club.
On this, Government is resolutely behind the management of Gombe United who are living up to expectation, by not only getting the club elevated to the top league in the country, the Nigeria Professional Football LEAGUE (NPFL), but also making the state proud with their remarkable performance.
Government is pleased that the current management of the top NPFL club has repositioned the team within a short period, making it one of the clubs to beat in the country’s top flight league.
It assures the management and indeed the entire sports loving people of the state that Government will continue to give the Savannah scorpions all the maximum support they require to succeed.
