A cold war is brewing in Gombe State as pilgrims from the state have been seen in Saudi Arabia during the Hajj campaigning for the re-election of Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo in 2015.

A source said the pilgrims displayed the governor’s posters in their areas of residence in Makka and other parts of the Arabian country, thereby angering many other Nigerian pilgrims especially from Northern Nigeria.

SaharaReporters could not get the Executive Secretary of the Gombe State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board, Usman Gurama, on the phone from our New York’s office. B ut he was said not to have questioned the rationale behind the action.

A Gombe indigene, Mohammed Garba, confirmed to SaharaReporters that Gurama’s position was aired on BBC Hausa this morning from Makka.

Garba said, “We heard Gurama justifying it and not coming out to make a categorical statement against such nonsense. How can our pilgrims behave in such disgraceful manner?  Why other states didn’t do so. But I am not surprised; they did not go on pilgrimage but on Dankwambo’s pleasure trip.  Most of them were sponsored by the governor.”

Garba added, “One Abdulkadir Abdullahi from Gombe whom we know as the governor’s puppet even argued that there is nothing wrong, and that if he has posters he will also display and post it during Hajj.”

It would be recalled that, an Islamic cleric in the state, Sheik Isa Pantami recently warned the governor against being fooled by political sycophants.

According to Pantami, “Gombe State lawmakers, most of your commissioners and other political appointees are making gigantic evil-effort to mislead you by their utterances as well as their blind loyalty not to your humble self as IBRAHIM, but to the office you occupy and the State's resources you control as the executive governor of the state.  Be aware of sycophants. To them might is always right. And they are always in support of any government in power. Their principles, loyalty, commitment and integrity are "money and power.

"HE Dankwambo! I have been disturbed with the recent sycophancy of people around you, including our lawmakers in this month of June, who blindly, arrogantly, sentimentally and greedily endorsed your re-election in 2015 on behalf of almost 2million people of our dear Gombe State. Their action is nothing but an anathema not only to them, but to the entire people of the State, Dankwabo inclusive. I had been waiting for your response on that, but you remain silent, meaning you have accepted their endorsement. Subhanallah! In addition to that, their action is Un-Islamic, undemocratic and uncivilized. Be aware of sycophants please. If your tenure ends, they will dump you in the waste bin of history and surround your successor.”

Hippocrates, Mecca was for Wheeling and dealing and now a political Billboard .The situation must be controlled now, before the Saudi's start throwing our true Pilgrims out.
