Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya  says his administration has taken effective measures to maintain the prevailing peace in the state, and turn Gombe to epicentre of development despite the insecurity in the North-East region. 
According to a statement signed by the Director-General (Press Affairs)Government House Gombe, Ismaila Uba Misilli, dated Wednesday March 23, 2022, he stated this while delivering a keynote address at the 2022 annual security conference and recognition awards ceremony organised by People’s Security Monitors, where governor bagged the Security Ambassador of Nigeria ( SAN) award.  
The event, which took place at the National Merit House in Abuja had in attendance security top brass, enthusiasts and diplomats. 
Governor Inuwa,  who chaired the event said “We thank God for helping us as far as the issue of security is concerned. We are in the midst of the north-east, sharing borders with the frontline states of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa. So, we’ve tried as much as possible to manage security in Gombe state. We are happy and by the grace of God, we shall try to sustain that”. 
Represented by the member representing Akko Federal Constituency and chairman House Committee on Police Affairs,  Hon. Usman Bello Kumo,  the Governor acknowledged the support of security agencies in facilitating peace and harmony. 
He said despite religious, social, ethnic and other differences that normally cause friction among the people, Gombe State has been able to surmount the challenges with the understanding of its people. 
The governor disclosed that the government has adopted a holistic approach by enhancing its internal security architecture. 
“ In addition to the novel ministry of internal security and ethical orientation which we set up on coming on board in 2019, we have security management committees in place, comprising traditional rulers from the ward, to districts, emirates and chiefdoms, up to the state level. Therefore, we share information and manage whatever decision we take, and whenever there is an issue, we nip it in the bud without allowing it to get to an alarming level.” 
Governor Inuwa appreciated the People’s Security Monitors ( PSM)  for recognising the modest efforts of his government in the area of security,  assuring of his administration’s readiness to work with the organisation. 
Earlier,  the Chief executive officer of PSM, Mr. Ishiaka Mustapha said the award on Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya as Security Ambassador of Nigeria ( SAN) was in recognition of his dedication,  sacrifice and commitment to the promotion of peace and security in the country.
