The All Progressives Congress APC, Taraba State chapter has sworn in the remaining thirty-five Executive Members apart from the state Chairman of the party, Barrister Ibrahim Tukur El-sudi who was inaugurated since.

The event took place at the State Secretariat of the party along Hamman ruwa way in Jalingo with Barrister Isa Buba who administered the Oath of office to the 35 Excos.

Speaking after the swearing-in, the state Chairman of APC, Barr. Ibrahim Tukur El-Sudi in the whole of Taraba there was no Executive at the State level except him as Chairman because of the current court judgment that nullified the state Exco’s election.

He explained that the swearing-in ceremony became imperative because the legal department of the party has advised that the remaining Excos should be sworn in as enshrined in the party’s constitution since they have already filed an appeal seeking for the Court of appeal to nullify the judgment passed by Justice Simon Amobeda of the Federal High sitting in Jalingo.

“This has not indicated that the room for reconciliation has been closed, no, we will continue with the reconciliation talks, and also court case will continue but if our colleagues withdrew the case from the court, fine, but even the court of appeal says that if you filed an appeal seeking for nullifying a judgment, so, it is for temporary, that is why there no reason we will not carry out the swearing-in ceremony for the main time;

“There is no state in the whole of Nigeria that the Exco of the party has not been sworn in, therefore, we have to also do same as enshrined in the constitution of the party, but reconciliation continues because we need everyone for the success of the party, so, nobody should feel been overpowered, mucked, or disgraced,” El-Sudi stressed.

However, El-Sudi urged Exco members to put their interests aside and work as a team for the party to take over governance of the state come 2023, noting that every aspirant is welcome as their doors are opened but emphasized that Sen. Emmanuel Bwacha is the first person that came to the party secretariat to carry out a program.

“APC is for any person that has an intention to contest, nobody should think of these people are the boys of Bwacha, or DSK, or Saleh Mamman, or Sani Abubakar Danladi, or Yusuf A. Yusuf, no, everybody is welcoming, and anybody that wants to do a program here is to the benefit of APC, so, he is welcome.” Barr. El-sudi emphasized.

Meanwhile, an aspirant in the party and a serving Senator representing Taraba South at the National Assembly, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha has donated 16 vehicles to the sixteen local government branches of the party.

Presenting the vehicles, Bwacha who was represented by the Director-General of his Campaign Organization, Hon. Iliyasu Kirim said the vehicles were provided to enable the party officials to move from point to point, adding that it is just the first step as more are coming, adding that even the party Secretariat that was recently donated by the Minister will receive a boost because the party is a big one and need a bigger place among many other things.

On his part, the former Taraba State Deputy Governor, Hon. Ahmadu Uba Maigari commended Sen. Bwacha for the donation, and described him as one of the leading lights of the party, adding the gesture signified that it is not how long you have been a member of the APC but how well you are a member of the APC is very important.

“You will all agree with me that Sen. Bwacha as the chairman has rightly said Sen. Bwacha has just joined us, for all we care and I believed it goes the same with the Chairman, “you could have been a member of the party since inception without making any contribution it amounts to nothing, I’m wrong? If you join us today and make this contribution, you will be warmly welcomed;

“So, Distinguished Sen. Bwacha we welcomed you wholeheartedly. I will join my able Chairman in also adding that we will welcome all donors, the party needs assistance, we all know we are in the opposition, although workable in Taraba. it will soon be expired by the grace of God. We will mobilize our party members, deploy resources, and deploy logistics like these that Sen. Bwacha donated to all nooks and crannies of Taraba state to make sure that we sent the PDP parking in 2023. It is very evident that they have nothing to offer, they have wasted seven years and drowned us back 20 years behind in Taraba” Maigari alleges.

Unmasking The Illiteracy And Hate Of Faceless Stakeholders In Yola North




Spread the love

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.

Numan Youths Cry Out Insensitivity Of PDP Stakeholders On Appointment List




Spread the love

Concern Numan Youths in Numan LGA of Adamawa State who are also members of the ruling People’s Democratic Party PDP have stressed the need for a quick intervention over what they called denial of Governor Fintiri’s Payback Instruction.

They made this position known in a statement issued to journalists in Yola, the state capital.

The statement reads in parts: “The instruction given by His Excellency during his stakeholders’ engagement was not to vote or delegate by PDP ward EXCOs but a nomination by the larger population to appoint the best and most hardworking PDP member.

“In Numan LGA, the story has always been about religion ahead of hard work. One critical factor is that PDP Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar lost in Numan LGA to Peter OBi of LP.

“Dr. Aminu has not only been the best appointee in numan but the best in its federation.

“He is second to none. He brought stability, peace empowerment and made a lot of people decamp to the PDP.

“It is not surprising that some powerful and mischievous masquerades both in PDP and APC have been working hard to cripple the young humanitarian personality due to fear of his successes, empowerment programmes, water projects, and growing popularity he attained in the past 4 years.

“The fear has also been translated by the young Man taking over the political space in the area.

“Such fear made the PDP ward excos who were remotely controlled by their mischievous masters filled in an APC Christian youth in a Muslim-dominated ward, who was also not from the ward and has not contributed to its development.

“He has been the best political appointee in the numan federation who maintained peace and unity amongst the youths by organizing a yearly seminar and dinner. The statement disclosed.

The statement, however, highlighted some of the achievements recorded by Dr. Aminu in the past four years comprising the construction of about 50 boreholes across all wards of Numan, the empowerment of about 200 youths and women as well as support ward 3 clinics with equipment worth N5m.

It further described him as the highest financial contributor as a political aide to PDP in Numan who defeated and reduced opposition votes in their strongest hold dominated by hausa fulani.

” Dr. Aminu revived PDP amongst Hausa Fulani in Numan and has been the most hardworking aide who has contributed the most to the success of the party in the area.

The statement, however, described the alleged forceful nomination of an APC Christian person from Ward 2 by the EXCOs as sentimental which is a threat to the PDP as a ruling party in the state.

“The EXCOs were influenced by some powerful masquerades against the instruction of the Governor to bring the best nominated non-party member.

“The so-called nominated candidate Arc. Zidon is from Ward 2 and has no voting polling unit in Ward 3.

“Ward 3 is dominated by 90% hausa fulani Muslim but a Christian was imposed against the wishes of the voters.

“An unrest has now been created by such action by the PDP EXCO at the ward,” the statement closed.
