From 2023, I Want To Be Elder Statesman To Younger Ones – Senator Goje

Senator representing Gombe Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Muhammad Danjuma Goje has vowed to give younger ones chance to contest elections in the 2023 dispensation as he retired to be elder statesman.

Senator Goje who addressed today, December 8 at the Pantami Township Stadium of Gombe State, said that he will step aside in 2023 to give young politicians from the state chance to also partake in the political process.

He recalled that he had contested elections seven times in over 40 years of his political sojourn, but that he was never defeated in an election.

“I contested for elective positions for seven record times and I was never defeated in any of the elections I presented myself as candidate. During the cause of my political career I was a Secretary of Local Government, member Bauchi state House of Assembly, a onetime minister, a two-term governor and was elected three times as a senator.”

Senator Goje, who is also the chairman of the Senate Committee on Marine Transport, said that he is not quitting politics but as an elder statesman he will remain in the APC to support young politicians to also contribute their quota towards the development of the state and the country at large.
