Adamawa: SSG, Commissioner, Lawmaker Must Be Excused Rather Accused In Their Constituency



Spread the love

Adamu Muhammad Dodo

A Prophet, it is said, has honour except in his hometown.

People don’t value what they have until they lost it.

One wonders why some people, residents in Jimeta, Yola North local government area, central senatorial district, Adamawa state, northeast Nigeria have taken to media onslaughts against the Secretary to the State Government, Engr Bashir Ahmed, the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon. Ibrahim Mijinyawa Yayaji and the state assembly member, representing Yola North, Hon. Hamidu Sajo Lekki even while trying to make the representational difference as acknowledged by commendations coming from different quarters.

The media onslaughts, some electorates pointed out, are but products of selfish interest by the lazy minded who have taken a vocation, like the worthless destitutes with the destination in begging.

“One is worthless, however the glaring contributions, provided that the unpatriotic, selfish and uncreative critics aren’t direct financial beneficiaries.

“It is only one with a defective memory that can submit to deception; Yola North local government secretariat hitherto under lock and key has been in operation devoid of crisis resulting from clash of interests.

“Neither the SSG nor the Hon Commissioner nor the state assembly lawmaker has any sadistic-ego-selfish interest to colonise the local government’s management and administration and was experienced prior to 2019

“More than 70% of the capital projects and capacity developments being executed by the present administration are in Yola North.

“The trio accused are incidentally introverts by nature, working the talk than exaggerating the work,” the electorates would point out.

Yunusa Abubakar, the social commentator would articulate that the most accused is the most misunderstood, the disliked based on defined sentiments by those whose schematic script is mischievously by mis… and disinformation acted upon by the rather unpatriotic residents of Jimeta, the seeming sponsored critics.

“It’s apparent that some groups hate to hear, to have and to see Bashir Ahmed retianed as SSG, in part, owing to his principles, in part, owing to his nature, misunderstood to be more of intolerant and largely, as is conceived, owing to his faith based essence.

“Most critics, other than being selfish, are entirely uncritically prisoners of other people’s thoughts, conscience and struggles, though untypical of ironism as a philosophy.

“The ironists have continuing doubts over their final vocabulary and are dependent upon the final final vocabulary of those they considered as being superior. This is however contrary to the uncreative critics in Jimeta who have no vocabulary of their own at all, to have subjected them to continuing doubts,” Abubakar would philosophise.

I have had time without number encounters, kind of experiences with the trio who are more accused than excused, to be accurately put. The responses, I respect, have been mutual rather than disrespectful.

Commissioner Yayaji is one among the honoured people who responds to a one dial call with courtesy, one of the highly respected Fellow members of the Institute of Business Diplomacy and Financial Management, IBDFM, in the state, for which I am a Council member.

SSG Bashir is one who would want to clear the air defeating any judgemental tendency. When he was accused like Napoleon in George Orwell’s ANIMAL FARM of taming dogs of war against opposition politicians, he was just landing from trip abroad. How would he have scheme such a riotous act against a politician he knew not about? He responded to my text message.

Hon. member Hamidu has been the Lekki he is prior to 2019, the improvement about him lies in the ability to accommodate constructive criticisms as contributions to development.

Beside, the SSG and the Commissioner are appointed to represent the entire state as a constituency than tribe, faith or local government of origin. They are by implication for everybody and for nobody. For this they ought to be excused.

The social commentator lamented that the electorates in Yola North, more than any other local government in the state, are more accusative than advisory and that even at that, the accusations are tied to sadism and selfish interest.

“Even if for nothing, their régime has addressed the challenging Shilla insecurity inherited. The youth and women are empowered in one way or the other as a remedy to Shilla-a-za-tion of the state,” the Social commentator would observe.
