Gombe: Thugs Set Fire to PDP Campaign Office

The campaign office of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Mohammed Barde for the 2023 governorship election in Gombe State has been set on fire.

According to reports, political thugs set fire to the Gombe Government House office, which is close to the Presidential Lodge, on Monday morning.

Barde, in a statement, verified the incident and said that properties were destroyed.

The statement issued on his behalf by the Deputy Director-General of Media, Atiku/Dan Barde Campaign Management Council, Junaidu Usman Abubakar, reads:

“There was an attack on the building housing the Barde Campaign Organization in the early hours of today by political thugs, suspected to be those of the sinking APC, setting ablaze the building and destroying properties.”

“The cowardly attack on this edifice, one of many in the last months further affirmed the present government’s stand on violence and destruction, a threat to the fragile peace of the state, which must vehemently be rejected by all and sundry.

“The PDP Governorship candidate, Alh. Muhammad Jibrin Barde, has on different occasions rejected violence and political thuggery, stressing the need to engage the resourceful Gombe youth in a meaningful pursuit.

“The good people of Gombe State are hereby prompted to reject this act of oppression on the ballot come 2023. The Barde Agenda rests on securing the lives and properties of the people, providing equal opportunities for the youth and women, rapid infrastructural development, and providing a level playing field for the opposition devoid of any undue oppression.”
