Governor writes, Seeking Suspension of his Monthly Pension, other allowances, ready to make refund as appropriate

A former governor of Gombe State, Senator Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo, has written to the state government seeking the suspension of his monthly pension and other allowances as enjoyed by former governors of the state.

In a letter addressed to Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya dated October 4, 2023 and obtained yesterday by Daily Trust, the former governor, who left office in May 2019, requested that the payment be put on hold.

Dankwambo, who is representing Gombe North Senatorial District, said he took the decision after interacting with civil society organisations (CSOs), integrity institutions, friends and associates.

The senator also pledged to make a refund as appropriate.


“I write to request for the suspension of my monthly pension and allowances of N694,557.82 being paid to me as former governor of Gombe State,” Dankwambo said in the letter.

The former governor added that, “Since he left office in 2019, I have never benefited from any welfare packages be it medical, furniture, transportation etc.”
