Ben Ngwakwe

The cold war between Senator Mohammed Danjuma Goje and the Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya has taken a new turn as Senator Danjuma Goje’s daughter, Dr. Husaina  Goje resigned her appointment as a Commissioner for Environment and Forest Resources, Gombe State.

Investigations reveal that she is not the only person affiliated to the embattled Senator on the cabinet, it was however, unclear if the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs who is a son- in-law to Goje, AlhajiJalo Waziri, will follow suit.

It may be recalled that the relationship between her father and her erstwhile boss, Muhammadu Yahaya, turned sour especially with last week Friday event where Senator Goje representing Gombe Central was prevented from coming into the state metropolis on his return from Abuja.

Dr.Husaina Goje,

In a press statement, the former Commissioner said her resignation was a personal decision..

She said, “Today, Saturday 6th of November I wish to inform the general public and media organisations that I, Dr. Husaina Goje, has tendered my formal resignation, from my position as Commissioner for Environment and Forest Resources to His Excellency the Executive Governor of Gombe State Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya effective today”. I also wish to inform that my resignation was made based on my personal reasons, with this I wish to show my appreciation and the opportunity given to me by his Excellency the Executive Governor to serve as a member of his Executive Council in this administration.”

Mrs. Goje would be remembered for assisting the current administration with the Gombe 3G project, that ensured the afforestation of the state.The former Commissioner is married to Dr. Ibrahim Boyi and prior to her appointment was a staff of Fiscal Responsibility Commission in Abuja .She holds a Doctorate degree in Entrepreneurship and Innovation from Nottingham University, England..
