The Emir of Gombe Dr. Abubakar Shehu Abubakar III has lauded Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya for initiating the Gombe Goes Green, 3G project, which aims at dousing the impact of climate change by targeting the planting of one million trees each year across the state.

Alhaji Abubakar Shehu Abubakar gave the commendation when he granted audience to leaders and members of course 15 of the Executive Intelligence Management Course of the Institute of Security Studies Abuja who were on a study tour to the state.

The Emir said the 3G initiative of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya’s administration will go a long way in mitigating the challenges of desertification and its attendant consequences.

He said the traditional institution in the state has been adequately sensitized and has keyed into the project to ensure its success and sustainability.

Earlier the Faculty spokesperson of the National Institute of Security Studies Abuja, Dr. Nka Obi-Bisong told the Emir that they were in Gombe State for a study tour.

Dr. Obi-Bisong explained that the choice of Gombe State was informed by its peaceful nature and the need to tap from the rich traditions of the people through the Emir.

She commended the Emir for accepting to interact with the team and assured them that they will do everything possible to support the ongoing efforts of the state in addressing the negative implications of climate change and global warming.

The Study Supervisor and leader of the course 15 Executive Intelligence Management Course, Mr. Jibrin Yaro also appreciated the Emir for sharing his thoughts with the group which he said will enhance the quality of their research report.

The team was also at the Muhammadu Buhari industrial Park on inspection and was received by the Commissioner of Trade and Industries, Alhaji Nasiru Mohammed, who tutored them on the government’s desire to open the state for industrialization.

The study tour group was also at the 40 megawatts Dadinkowa hydropower plant and was received by the Commissioner of Mines and Energy, Shehu Madugu, who informed them that the plant has since commenced power generation to the national grid.

Shehu Madugu explained that the plant is also expected to adequately supply power to the industrial Park adding that efforts are being intensified to secure a concession agreement with the Federal Government to enable the state to enjoy the maximum benefit of the generated power.
