The conferment of a prestigious traditional title of ‘Madaki Gudi’ on Yobe state Chairman of All progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Mohammed Gadaka by the Emir of Gudi, His Royal Highness, Alhaji Isa Bunuwo Ibn Madubu Khahji, is well deserved and its a call to greater service.
As a politician, businessman and philantrophists, Gadaka is a patriot who has offered himself to serve with loyalty, humility, and diligence. His underlying philosophical is being people oriented and people centered for a peaceful, united and prosperous state where all youths and elders are free to contribute their quota to nation building.
The conferment of the traditional title as Madaki was long overdue because of the laudable efforts of Alhaji Mohammed Gadaka to the development of Gudi Emirate and Yobe state in general.

“The Gudi Emirate Council therefore appreciate the action and decision of His Royal Highness the Emir of Gudi for choosing you to occupy this tittle with hope that you can uphold the honour and respect of Gudi Emirate Council.
No doubt, this is well deserved and a call for greater service to Gudi Emirate Council and the Yobe state in general, which Gadaka is not taking it lightly.
