Former Head of State and elder statesman, Gen Dr. Yakubu Gowon, has described the member representing Pankshin/Kanke/Kanam Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Rt Hon. Yusuf Adamu Gagdi, as a worthy son whose representation has brought unprecedented development to the people of his constituency.
Gagdi was on a thank you visit to the statesman at his Abuja residence to appreciate the father of Nigeria’s unity for his role in the reelection of the member representing Gowon’s native constituency of PKK.
Gowon lauds Gagdi’s legislative prowess and described him as a worthy son of Plateau State whose achievements are in tandem with his botched vision for Plateau State.
The elder statesman pledged to support Gagdi in whatever way necessary to help him succeed in his transformational agenda for PKK.
You will recall that the lawmaker had moved a motion on the floor of the House sometime last year, to debunk a motion by the British Parliament where the former Head of State was described in unpalatable words. Resolution to Gagdi’s motion had elicited an apology from the British Parliament.
Ever since, a father-son relationship had been cultivated between Gowon and Gagdi, where the later constantly looks up to the former for guidance and direction, which culminated in the success story of the lawmaker’s four years achievement in the House of Representatives.
Gen. Gowon had promised to assist Gagdi reach out to the farthest part of the country in order to help him achieve his set out goals for PKK.
