Why I resigned from Governor Yahaya’s administration – Waja

Waja said he decided to quit his position due to the state government’s alleged lack of respect for rules and regulations.

He said he was appointed to assist the governor on issues relating to governance and how to win the 2023 elections.

The former aide, however, expressed disappointment that that was not the case as all appointees were not given any assignment to carry out.

The former APC chieftain said he realised that he was appointed to do nothing just as he added that his salary was not sufficient to work as a political office holder.

“I realized that I was appointed to do nothing. Even when things are going wrong, nobody listens or wants to take advice from the government,” he said.

Waja reveals why he joined NNPP

Speaking on his decision to join the NNPP, Waja said he was convinced that the party’s gubernatorial candidate is the most prepared among the contenders.

“Mailantarki has the requirements to be a better governor for Gombe. He has everything ranging from human relations, zeal and ideas to deliver good governance and move Gombe out of the current challenges,” he said.
