…For donating books to Islamiyya schools 

From Christiana Gokyo, Jos 

Muslims in Plateau State have said that the Senetor representing the Northern Senatorial District of the state at the National Assembly and Deputy Chairman of Senate Committee on Defence, Senator Istifanus Gyang has impacted positively on their communities more than any federal representative in the recent years.

The Muslims from Jos North and Barkin Ladi Local Government Areas, during a Sallah homage to the Senator, said the former House of Representatives member has earned their support for any political position he seeks.

According to them: “Your name has been ringing in Jos North and we love you; because we love you, we trust you; and because we trust you, we will follow you anywhere.”

The chairman of Jos Hausa/Fulani community, Alhaji Baba Gambo, who led the Jos North delegation to the Senator and his Barkin Ladi counterpart, Alhaji Awalu Haruna applauded Sen. Gyang for donating books to Islamic schools and empowering disadvantaged groups in the locality.

Alhaji Gambo, a 70-year old elderly man in the delegation said the Senator saved his life when he was critically ill without finances for surgery.

“He gave me a motorbike for business after singlehandedly funding my surgery and now I’m hale and hearty,” he said.

“The Senator for his selflessness and ‘matchless representation’ since his time in the lower Chambers of the Nigerian Parliament deserves a chance to be governor,” said Alhaji Gambo.

He said: “We are pleading that after two terms in the Senate, you should come and run for governorship and we will support you.”

A women leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the locality, Mrs. Amina Adamu also said the Senator has economically empowered over 600 widows, including herself, thus proving his capacity to be governor.

A youth leader in the locality, Malam Musa Tanko as well as an active member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Garba Wallace equally called on the Senator to consider expanding his impact by running for governor in 2027.

In his remarks during the visitation, Senator Gyang said the mandate given him is to ensure peace and security, reconciliation and economic empowerment for the electorates.

“We cannot achieve peace through violence, the path to peace is harmonious coexistence, we must therefore embrace peace and reconcile ourselves,” he said, adding that: “The next important thing for us is economic empowerment, and the greatest empowerment is education.”
