Binani Is using Fed Govt Support Programs For Political Gains – Fintiri’s Aide, Tukur




Spread the love

The Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the Executive Governor of Adamawa State, Muhammad Bukari Tukur says he has noted with displeasure the way the ongoing Federal Government Support Programs, Conditional Cash Transfer, (CCT) meant for the poorest of the poor is being diverted along political lines.

In a press statement signed by the SSA New Media and made available to news men in Yola, Tukur fingered the Senator Representing Adamawa Central Senatorial District and a gubernatorial flag-bearer for the opposition All Progressives Congress, (APC) Sen. Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed (Binani).

According to the SSA, the Senator had hijacked the process by usurpation of the original list meant for the project where the true representation of the most vulnerable in Adamawa State was domiciled.

His major worry is that instead of adhering to the list that is a true reflection of the vulnerable in Adamawa State, a new list from the National Assembly brought in strange beneficiaries who are not from Adamawa State.

“Adamawa people anticipated the advent of this programme with excitement, unfortunately, their happiness was shortlived as the program execution started. The 5-day programme was supposed to end on Saturday, but was inconsiderably extended to Sunday Morning when many of the masses will be in Churches. This is sending wrong signal.
This selective award of beneficiaries based on political lines has raised suddenly murmuring among the masses of the state. This is not a good omen” he pointed out.

He called on the Executive Governor of Adamawa State, His Excellency, Alh. Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri to intervene on behalf of the abandoned vulnerable who were shortchanged. Adding that this will go along way to help calm down the masses who are already agitating to take to the streets to protest their anger and frustrations.

He recalled that a similar unfortunate incident happened during the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA’s fertilizer distribution scheme. The preferential treatment based on political affiliation in favour of APC was masterminded and executed. Tukur, opined that allowing this current impunity to go on, will be a case of taking the masses for granted.
