Monarchy In Maiha: Right Group Seeks Permission To File For An Order Of Enforcement Against Adamawa Govt
- Executive prolonged delay in implementing court order is unpalatable to democratic taste, reason, religion and rule of law
- The fantastic denial by delaying the implementation of justice is unconstitutional, hence must be challenged before the law
- The good People’s numerous calls on the chief executive to do the needful, to honour courts order by approving the appointment of the Emirate Council selected, courts declared district head of Jalingo-Maiha is far from being heeded to this day…
- If permission is granted by the ruling family for free legal services, Fintiri will be the third governor in Adamawa to face the law over Jalingo-Maiha district headship
A Lagos based human right group, planning to establish a northeast zone office in Yola, Adamawa state said would forward a letter seeking for permission from the ruling family, for free legal service to challenge the state governor before the law, for an order of enforcement, following the undue, seeming politically influenced, apparently prolonged delay in the implementation of courts order, the group considered as unpalatable to democratic taste, reason, religion and rule of law, in a region recovering from the devastation occasioned by insurgency.
“Over eight years after death, over three years after a high court judgement, over two years of Fintiri led government and over one year with the determination of the appeal court that upholds the earlier high court judgement, the court order will not be implemented, even when other chiefdoms and districts in the state, that within a year after the demise of their traditional chiefs, the executive approval of appointments of successors were granted.
“The fantastic denial by prolonged delay in the implementation of justice; the approval by the Adamawa state governor of appointment of Barr Mahmud Abubakar, is unconstitutional, hence must be challenged before the law”.
The group argued that eight years make two tenures of the elected executives and legislators; this goes to explain the delay Jalingo-Maiha district experiences and the barrenness the district head palace suffers to this day.
An elder in Maiha observed that, if the request of the human right group is granted by the Jalingo-Maiha legitimate ruling family for free legal services; to go to court and file for an Order of Enforcement, Rt Hon Fintiri would be the third governor after Mr. Wilberforce Juta and Sen. Muhammadu Umaru Jibrilla, popularly known as Bindow, to face the law over Jalingo-Maiha district headship.
Both late Juta and Bindow have suffered humiliating defeat before the law with the ages old ruling family standing tall in victory out of peace, patience and perseverance.
In the early 80s, for reason purely ‘politicotribal’ ignorantly hatched, Juta as acting governor, undemocratically, unconstitutionally expelled the district heads of Jalingo-Maiha and Belel. The Juta-a-za-tion of monarchy in Maiha was quashed before the law by the then Justice Buba Ardo of blessed memory and the expelled district heads were eventually reinstated by the then Military Governor Muhammadu Jega, who himself hailed from aristocratic family.
About thirty five years later, the legitimate heir whose named was recommended by the Emirate Council to the governor for approval of appointment, challenged the then governor Bindow before the law for appointing the unrecommended for a district head, who incidentally is the son of the candidate appointment by Juta as district head of Jalingo-Maiha that the court humiliated.
Governor Bindow, for reasons he would not disclose, declined to honour a high court order to right the wrongs before his tenure was terminated by the aggrieved electorates.
On several occasions, Jalingo-Maiha jubilated the victory they were not to celebrate owing to the extended executive undue delay by the present governor, to approve the appointment of the Emirate Council selected, courts declared district head. The question that is remained to be asked is why the delay?
A Friday Qutba last week cautioned against undue delay in the delivery and implementation of judgement, in the payment for services rendered, in debt servicing as much as in the delay for obligatory prayers and other compulsory due rites.
In legal parlance, it is said that justice delayed is justice denied. The literary critic would articulate that there is the uncontrolled unconscious bias associated with the delay in the implementation of justice.
Coin has two sides, hence the paradox; pros and cons. The law and the leader ought to stand in justice with the innocent led, the delay in the implementation of justice invariably means taking sympathy with the unjust.
Elaborating the point, two women claiming motherhood were presented before a Prophet. They both claimed to have given birth to the child in question. The Prophet ruled that since there was no sufficient convincing evidence by either of the women, the child should be cut into two parts to be shared between the women. While one welcomed the idea with gladness, the other, considering how lifeless the child would be to have him cut into two, pleaded with the Prophet to spare the life of the child. No one would need to tell the gathering, the legitimate mother between the two women.
The humiliated before the law would rather celebrate the prolonged undue executive delay in the approval of the appointment of the Emirate Council’s selected, court declared district head of Jalingo-Maiha than to wish for the prompt implementation of the courts order.
The good, concerned youths of Jalingo-Maiha who are disenchanted with the prolonged executive delay in the approval of the appointment of their legitimate district head sought to know whether “Jalingo-Maiha and/or the ruling family, has in any way offended and/or offend(s) the state or the governor(s) to have warranted such treatment?
“The palace lost stepmother and the queen mother, not a condolence was registered by the governor who has also not visited the local government after the campaign visit over two years ago.
“Is the governor delaying the approval of appointment of our district head, even if not till kingdom come, till electioneering period?
“Could the ruling family honour the request; allow the human right group to challenge the Adamawa state governor before the law, against undue prolonged delay in honouring the long overdue courts order?”

USAID, IITA Unveil 2023 Agricultural Inputs Fair In Yola
By Abdulaziz Abubakar Damare
The USAID in Partnership with IITA through its project “Feed The Future, Nigeria Integrated Agriculture Activity” has declared its 2023 Agricultural Inputs Fair opened in Yola, the Adamawa state capital on Monday 5th June 2023 at Mahmud Ribadu Square in Yola, Northeast Nigeria.
In his address, the Executive Governor of Adamawa State Rt. Hon. Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, commended USAID and its Implementing Partner IITA for choosing Adamawa as one of the beneficiaries of various training and supports by the organizations.
The Governor who is heavily represented by his Deputy Prof. Kaletapwa George Farauta, expressed the readiness of Adamawa state government to partner with relevant organization to boost food security in Adamawa.
Fintiri who described the training given to farmers on modern techniques as timely, called for the NGO’s to train farmers on application of fertilizer and manure as part of their project to ensure bumper harvest.
He added that the state government will pay more attention on the stomach infrastructure of the good people of Adamawa in its new tenure.
Earlier in his welcome address, the chief of party Integrated Agricultural Activity (IAA) Mr. Prakash Kant Silwal said they have engaged over 30,000 farmers in Adamawa on various training and modern farming techniques in the state.
Mr. Prakash said the inputs fair is an opportunity for producers of various crops, seeds, food among others to sell their products.
He added that the inputs displayed at Mahmud Ribadu Square are qualitative, accessible and affordable compared to that of market prize.
In his remarks, the chairman Agro Dealers Association Northeastern Nigeria Alh. Usman Bapullo Ribadu, challenged farmers to harvest a certified seed and acquire the knowledge of farming before venturing into the sector.
On their various testimonies on behalf of the beneficiaries, Mal. Dauda Mohammed from Guyuk Local Government and Josia Stanley said the training obtained from the NGO’s has yielded a positive result and made them self reliant.
The two-day inputs fair in Yola continues Tuesday 6th June and in Gombi on 7th June 2023.
The International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) is an award-winning, research-for-development (R4D) organisation providing solutions to hunger, poverty, and the degradation of natural resources in Africa since 1967.
Unmasking The Illiteracy And Hate Of Faceless Stakeholders In Yola North
In the aftermath of the 2023 governorship election in Adamawa State, a group of faceless stakeholders have emerged, driven by illiteracy and animosity, on a mission to undermine the efforts of the committed and experienced Secretary to the Adamawa State Government (SSG). These self-proclaimed stakeholders, by flagrantly violating the orders given by Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri to engage their constituents for political appointments, are exposing their true intentions while playing a manipulative game of ‘reverse psychology’.
The recent allegations leveled against the Chairman of PDP Yola-North, Abdullahi Sarki (Audu Kacisa), claiming that he secretly visited critical stakeholders in an attempt to influence the selection process for the best eleven (11) political appointees, are baseless and a desperate ploy by these naysayers. Their accusations hold no merit and only serve to highlight their own incompetence and lack of substantiation for their supposed commitment during the election.
Furthermore, the claim that the stakeholders visited by the Chairman have unanimously refused to comply with the request is nothing more than a display of symptoms resembling a new strain of bipolar disease. These so-called stakeholders, who lack the courage to prove their commitment and support, are resorting to baseless allegations in an attempt to tarnish the reputation of those genuinely dedicated to the progress of Adamawa State.
The assertion that the Chairman’s actions were influenced by the former Secretary to the Adamawa State Government, Mallam Bashir Ahmed, is the pinnacle of irresponsibility exhibited by these pretenders who worked against the victory of the PDP in the last election. While true patriots are eagerly seeking collaboration for the betterment of the state, these nattering nitwits continue to throw tantrums and impede progress.
It is important to note that SSG Bashir Ahmad, through his unwavering determination and strategic political calculations, demonstrated his competence without the support of these detractors. While they were engaged in trivial pursuits, he successfully navigated the political landscape, leaving them in the dust. As the reality of their own ineptitude and irrelevance unfolds, they are quickly fading away like flies.
It is crucial for the good people of Adamawa State to recognize these faceless stakeholders for what they truly are: ill-informed individuals driven by ignorance, illiteracy, and a deep-seated hatred for progress. Their attempts to discredit the Governor and his administration, as well as the dedicated individuals who have been instrumental in the state’s success, should not be taken seriously. Instead, the focus should remain on building a united front and fostering collaborations that will lead to the development and prosperity of Adamawa State.
In conclusion, let us not be swayed by the manipulations of these faceless stakeholders who seek to undermine the progress made in Adamawa State. Their illiteracy and hate are evident, and their actions serve only to hinder the collective efforts of those genuinely committed to the state’s growth. It is time to rise above their petty games and work together towards a brighter future for Adamawa State.
