Gombe APC Governorship aspirant splashes  N40m Sallah gift on party officials  

A top All Progressives Congress (APC) Governorship hopeful in Gombe State, Alhaji Farouk Bamusa has splashed N40 million on executives of the party at all levels in the State.
Bamusa, while giving out the cash gifts at the party Secretariat, said it was part of his own contribution towards supporting the party officials to celebrate the Muslim festival of Ed-el-kabir billed to hold next week Tuesday.
According to him, APC as an opposition party in the State has many challenges, especially lack of financial resources, as such, the expectations and needs of their followers and loyalists may not be fully met by the officials.

He explained that he will continue to remain loyal and supportive to the party in whatever way possible.

Bamusa also called on the party delegates to give him the mandate to fly the party’s flag in the Governorship election saying, “the party needs a performer and I am the only candidate that can wrestle power from the PDP in Gombe State with your support. Give me the chance and I will not disappoint you”.
Responding, the State party Chairman, Mr. Nitte Amangal, commended the aspirant and said the party is very much aware of his activities in supporting the party.
A run down of the cash distribution shows that the 30 State executives will each have N50,000.00, the State Chairman, N100,000.00, party Secretariat administrative staff, N50,000.00, youths present at the occasion, N50,000.00, the 297 LG chairmen in the eleven LGA’s, N20,000.00 each, ward Chairmen and all ward executives also got various sums all totalling N40 million.
