On Friday, President Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) approved the Federal Government’s “takeover” of Gombe State Airport.
Muhammad Yahaya, the State Governor, revealed this to State House Correspondents shortly after meeting with the President at the Aso Rock Villa.
Yahaya stated that the measure will secure the facility’s availability of finances for the duration of its existence.
He also noted that the political developments in Gombe formed part of the issues discussed with the President.
He insisted that the Gombe State Investment Summit will be held in the first week of October.
The summit, he said, would attract investors and ultimately increase the internally generated revenue of the northeastern state in the wake of the 13-year insurgency that ravaged the region.
