He said the honour will spur him to continue to do more for the betterment of the people of the  State, adding that it is his desire to leave Gombe better than he met it. 
The Governor stated that his administration is providing quality governance to the people  through a well thought-out Gombe State Development Plan (2021-2030) aimed at transforming the state within the next 10 years and placing it on the path of sustainable development.  
“We came in with a clear vision and we were able to organise a mission that was to work for us. The award will inspire us to do more and we will succeed in changing the narratives to make Gombe a better place, better than we met it”, he said. 
He commended the Leadership newspaper for its objectivity and dynamism, describing the national tabloid as one that has continued to promote the narrative of good governance and national cohesion. 
He also praised the newspaper for reporting Gombe State in an unbiased and dynamic manner that has given the state the desired visibility among its peers in the country. 
“I must confess that the coverage Leadership has given us is really encouraging and heartwarming, coming from a group that is very objective and dynamic. The recognition of that service is really worth celebrating,’’ the Governor said.
