Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, was on Sunday, January 28, 2024, greeted with a hero's welcome into the State by party enthusiasts and well-wishers after his Supreme Court victory declaration.

Since the declaration of his victory at the Supreme Court in Abuja, the governor had been attending to official engagements in different parts of the country until last Sunday, when he returned to Gombe by road through Yobe State.

The elated party enthusiasts and supporters lined the routes at Nafada, Funakaye, Kwami and Gombe LGA's, eager to express their joy and solidarity with the governor, following his legal victory at the Supreme Court. 

The governor, who was practically avoiding any big reception, it was learnt, found it challenging to contain the overwhelming response of the people who couldn't hide their happiness over the Supreme Court's verdict, which ended all litigations to his election.

He returned to the State from Maiduguri, Borno State, where he chaired the annual Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Lecture in his position as chairman of the Northern States Governors' Forum. 

It was also learnt that he chose to return by road, but his journey back to Gombe turned into a celebration of sort as supporters, led by officials, party chieftains, and in some places, traditional rulers, enthusiastically welcomed him along the route while passing through their respective local government areas. 

In Gombe, the deputy governor, Dr. Manassah Daniel Jatau, led other top government functionaries to receive Governor Inuwa Yahaya at his residence and to convey heartfelt congratulations to him and the APC on the triumph at the Supreme Court. 

At all the places stopped, special prayers were offered for Allah's continued guidance to the governor and his administration.
