In the story my name and company’s name is mentioned and it is claimed that as the younger brother of Gombe State governor, Babangida Muhammad Dankwambo, popularly known as BMD, I have defected to the All Progressive Congress from the Peoples Democratic Party.
The story further alleged that brother I dumped PDP despite efforts by the governor to prevail on me to remain in the party and that THISDAY checks revealed that I was under pressure from different quarters to reverse my decision and was even given juicy offers which I rejected.
I wish to categorically state that at no time did such a thing happened. These falsehood against me and my brother, Gombe state governor, Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo, Talban Gombe, is mischievous, fictitious and malicious. It is a big surprise that such concocted story was circulated by some mediums without balance.
It is also worthy of note that, my name is not Babangida Muhammad Dankwambo, my name is Buhari Muhammad Dankwambo. I repeat, the story is baseless and unfounded. I never dumped the PDP for the APC, and I am still with my brother, Gombe state Governor, Alhaji Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo, Talban Gombe.
Gombe State Governor is a father figure to everyone in the family, he has been more than a brother, he is a pillar to all of us. Having inherited the traditional title of ‘Talban Gombe’ from our late father, he has done tremendously well to fill the vacuum left by our old man. I will never do anything to bring disrepute and disregard to Talban Gombe or my family.
It is sad that a few enemies of Gombe will go to any extent to malign the governor. I called them the enemies of our dear state because they choosed to be blinded by the fact that Talban has done hundreds times better than what all of his predecessors put together did.
I wish to plead with all humility, to every person concerned or affected in any way by that report to dismiss that unfair representation of me as it is just one of few cooked fake news reports intended to tarnish my good image.
