Spread the love

The Personal Media Assistant to the deputy Governor of Adamawa state, Chief Crowther Seth, Wilson Japhet Fofano has described recent publication by Sahara Reporters on Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri and his Deputy as lies and malicious.

The media outfit has recently published a story on hiw Adamawa Governor Umaru Fintiri enjoying Jumbo allowances, denying his deputy befitting official residence and travel entitlements among other issues which went viral on social media platforms.

Fofano in a press statement made available to Sahel Reporters said the publication in SaharaReporters should therefore be discountenanced for what he described as lies, malicious regurgitation of old licked vomit by street media urchins whose stock in trade is to destroy for pay and to placate for more pay.

He added that “Chief Crowther Seth is a victim because he does not pander to the dictates of check book hack writers. I speak in his place because he will not subject himself to responding to puerile thinking that he is sure his boss Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri will not give ear to.”

“There is no iota of truth to Chief Crowther colluding with of all people the rag tag scandal tabloid to push a case for his entitlements. None of his emoluments have hung and he is a participant in the government’s belt tightening measures taken in good faith and loyalty to his boss,” he said.

The media aide further said the Deputy Governor has maintained the fleet of vehicles he inherited and the replacement of his Number 1 vehicle reserving the old one as spare in standard procedure adding that he eats local cuisine and is not given to a display of entitlements of his office.

“The facts of the matter are that Governor Fintiri has not renovated the Government House which he moved into save for the usual clean up that follows a tenure. The Deputy Governor’s residence was not occupied by Chief Crowther’s predecessors and therefore needed no renovation.

“Chief Crowther as everyone who knows him would testify is a modest Deputy, keeping a low profile except when he goes on official duty. He is a lover of nature and has made his abode a home for his exotic livestock and rare birds and by his own volition has not been under pressure to move into the open official residence of the Deputy Governor,” he said.

Fofano stressed thar at every opportunity, Chief Crowther has paid sincere glowing tribute to Governor Ahmadu Fintiri as his mentor and leader and has constantly sought prayers for his boss in every public gathering, reminding everyone that he is “nzo hube di kodo nzo kodei” meaning he is an appendage of his boss through thick and thin come what may.

“Regrettably however, is knowing fully well the fact that the decision to dignify the proponent of this campaign by refuting its concocted falsehood, fallacious statement and illogical reasoning will be met with mischievous manipulation of truth, the fraudulent manipulations of facts and a contemptuous arrogance of ignorance as they conjure all sorts of primordial myths to convince the sometimes gullible public.

“One sometimes wonder whether this like-minded exponents of the campaign against Chief Crowther Seth have a sense of history of the man; on the contrary they seem to suffer certain historical amnesia. Perhaps, one can blame their thinking faculty which is shrouded by night marish satanic indictments which cannot see reason. Why would anyone want to put asunder what God has put together.

“This is the fourth rehash of the same story running now for the whole tenure of the Fintiri Administration. It is a concoction of lies and malicious innuendos intended to cause disaffection between Crowther Seth and his boss Fintiri. The intention is to pressurize Crowther Seth to join issues with the worthless tabloid knowing that this would be a distraction and a waste of the public servant’s time and commitment,” he said.

The Media Aide said “today is a historic day for Adamawa State. It is a day when the People’s Democratic Party elevated the Governor of Adamawa State Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri to the lofty pedestal of Chairman of the National Convention Committee. I speak as a citizen of Adamawa Stare that shares the elevation. I am not being political.”

“Undoubtedly it is a very significant development owing to the many considerations. It is noteworthy that a man as young as Fintiri would be tasked to shoulder this responsibility. Adamawa should be proud and roll out the drums to welcome Fintiri back. Honour has been bestowed on Adamawa State and the onus now lies on Fintiri to make us proud. Across all the national dailies, the focus has deservedly been on this national development as we see history practically being made.

“But alas. Detractors are at work. Back home, the focus of some well read internet tabloids is the bizarre cooked story of the Deputy Governor of Adamawa State reportedly being disgruntled over issues as childish and clandestine as being sidelined for his official quarters, and unpaid travel allowances.

“It is the height of mischief. Is it imaginable that given the many political associates that the Deputy Governor and his boss Governor Fintiri share, Chief Crowther Seth would collude with a tabloid known for not wishing him well to propagate his plea to Fintiri? That the reporters at this tabloid have sought incessantly to malign and cause disaffection for Chief Seth is no secret. Thus campaign of calumny has been the only brand of the medium for reasons best known to themselves,” he said.

The media aide called on the public to disregard the publication by Sahara Reporters saying “enough of the grandstanding and throwing of stones, the posturing must stop; receiving no applause.”

He said the Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Barrister Nyesome Wike is an intruder and the Party’s interloper who came from the opposition ruling party and displaced them in silenced any issues concerning the northern region.

He accused Wike of attacking some well-meaning Nigerians, especially those from the Northern extraction at will without any of the politicians in the current government fighting for the injustice being meted out by the current FCT minister to many sons and Daughters of the party.

Sai’du from Adamawa Central Senatorial District gave the example of Messrs Integrated Facility Management Services Ltd managing the affairs of the International Conference Center (ICC) Abuja abruptly revoked its contract with the federal government by Wike without following due process.

According to him, Wike did that because the company is owned by a Northerner and revoked the contractual agreement with the sole aim of empowering his political cronies who will be loyal to him in 2027.

The Adamawa State-born politician said the crop of ministers from the Northern region in the current cabinets are Wike stooges who do not have the capability and capacity to stand against injustice and defend anyone in the North.

Worried that if they cannot defend the interest of the North and any politician who has served the party well and wholeheartedly worked for the success of the party they have become failures and all Nigerians should boo them because they are a disgrace.

Sai’du further said that Mallam Ahmad Abubakar Moallayidi, a non-serving Senator who has represented Adamawa Southern Senatorial District in recent times became a victim of Wike’s “rascality” of attacking Northerners.

Sai’du who was the former National Chairman of the KOWA Party said Moallayidi was one of the few individuals who sacrificed a lot in delivering President Tinubu and all he could get in return was Wike’s sheer wickedness in attacking Northerners.

He called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to as a matter of urgency replace Wike with a more decent politician from Rivers State who is a true member of APC otherwise, the excesses of his leadership are becoming more unbecoming and will consume everyone in the party, including the president.

“Wike from PDP is getting on the nerves of everyone in APC, the Man is having his field day and his atrocities are going unhindered being aided by the so-called Ministers who are afraid to call him to order.

“All I’m saying is he should stand up for Justice and stop fighting those who worked for the party that’s today a beneficiary of their hard work and labor through all sorts of pains to bring Tinubu on board,” Sai’du said

Sai’du a one-time Vice Presidential Candidate of the KOWA PARTY in the 2015 Presidential Election With Professor Oluremi Sonayya as the only woman Presidential candidate continued to say that the APC party is becoming evil with the glaring tendencies of killing her own bonafide Sons and Daughters.

“Many people sacrificed a lot, who against all odds served the party and spent their time, energy and resources in bringing into power the leadership of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu are today crying for marginalization because the likes of Wike are the Alpha and Omega of all that’s happening in the party.” He said

He said Northern politicians in Tinubu’s regime are dosing off, they should wake up and fight for the collective interest of the entire region.

“Your silence is too much for our liking, you are becoming stooges to a Man that ought to be under your tutelage. He has silenced you and is making you irrelevant in this administration for his personal interest. Under your nose is fighting one of our own for no just course, under your watch is meting out injustice to some northern politicians and none of you can address him. You are failing us, you are not representing us well and you all will regret it later. Remember the consequences of your actions or inactions will bore down to the electorates to decide.” Sai’du further stated
