Magaji described Governor Yahaya as an energetic, focused and charismatic leader who believed in uniting the country for sustainable development.

According to him, the charismatic leader has a vision of addressing the socio economic and political challenges facing the country in order to have peace, unity and stability.

He commended the Governor, for his foresight and patriotism and explained that it’s high time for youth to lead this country.

The youths concluded, “We would all queue behind him and join forces with him to retire these old brigades who have held this country to ransom”.

“We do not hesitate to support Governor Bello’s peace initiative and we are ready to partner with him to foster peace, equity, justice, unity, love and fairness for our country. His (Bello) action was never expected to settle the dust; the food blockade protest would have cost the peace of the country and overall economy in the midst of the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic.

“We saw the situation of a food blockade embarked upon by northern traders to the south, and it was really degenerating within the days it lasted. This was not a good sign for the unity of the country”.

“We were also concerned about the untold hardship this action caused in the lives of Nigerians. Particularly those in the south, and not until Governor Bello took it upon himself to broker peace as he successfully convinced those who went on the protest. We are highly elated and delighted to show our heartfelt gratitude for the amazing and selfless service you are rendering to Nigerians from the North to South, East to West, geopolitical zone.

“The vision you have for Nigeria is clearly seen on your aim of uniting this country and for all Nigerians to have a sense of belonging, and we have seen this act of statesmanship in your moves to stabilize Nigeria as you have just done in this foodstuffs traders blockage saga and the good governance of peace and security and bridge building wish you have brought to Kogi State within this period of you being the Governor of the State”.

2023 Polls: You Are A Liar, Taraba CAN Chairman Tells Senator Bwacha 




Spread the love

Hammed Abubakar, Jalingo 

The Chairman Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Taraba State Chapter, has faulted claims by the Governorship Candidate of the APC, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha, that the Chairman of the association, Rev Dr. Isaiah Magaji Jirapye apologized to him over the endorsement of Col. Agbu Kefas, PDP Governorship candidate by CAN.

Jirapye said, “it was very unfortunate for the personality of Senator Bwacha to have lied on Channels Television that I, the CAN Chairman visited him secretly and apologized over the endorsement of Col Agbu Kefas by the CAN”.

He said that all that Senator Emmanuel Bwacha said about CAN during his interview with Channels TV should be regarded as baseless, adding that the embattled APC governorship candidate is busy chasing a white goose. 

According to the CAN Chairman, “the meeting between myself and Senator Bwacha after the endorsement of Col. Agbu Kefas was for him to take the endorsement in good fate since it was a  unanimous decision by CAN, but I am surprised to hear the Senator on Channels Television lying that I went to apologize to him over the endorsement. 

Jirapye urged Senator Emmanuel Bwacha to desist from dragging CAN in his desperation to govern the State for his selfish reasons. 

“CAN position on endorsement was a unanimous decision and not that of myself the Chairman alone so I  advise desperate politicians to desist from using my name for their selfish interests”.

CAN warns desperate politicians such as Senator Bwacha whom he said lack manners but called themselves Christians, and at the same time insult their spiritual leaders at will to trade with caution. 

CAN is shocked by the kind of outburst of cancerous anger from the Senator and pray God to deliver him from such a problem, saying People of Bwacha’s character should be watched carefully and never be entrusted with Leadership positions to govern the people. 

The Chairman noted that the endorsement of the PDP governorship candidate Col. Agbu Kefas by CAN was in the best interest of the people of the State.
