Unmasking The “So-called” Jimeta PDP ‘Critical’ Stakeholders



Spread the love

By Ahmad Ibrahim Jimeta

The hardest thing about any political campaign is how to win without proving you are unworthy of winning. The “so-called” Jimeta PDP ‘Critical’ Stakeholders have failed to prove the relentless “smear campaign” they have waged against Malam Bashiru Ahmad, former Secretary to Adamawa State Government (SSG).

But despite seemingly eating the forbidden fruit, and in a manner very disgusting and infuriating to the sensibilities of the good people of Jimeta, the amorphous and faceless Jimeta PDP ‘Critical Stakeholders refused to retract their steps thinking that their only saving grace from facing the wrath of their odious actions is by continuing to cook-up unpalatable media hype against the former SSG.

Since governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri issued directive to the effect that all PDP stakeholders in Adamawa should go back to their constituents for consultations to pick their best eleven 11 and forward same for appointments, the so-called stakeholders did not rest on their oars, in their attempt to disregard the governor’s directive as they were hell bent in bringing their cronies and hangers on even though those chaps do not seemingly fit the bill.

They didn’t only accuse him of altering the list of 15-20 selected would-be appointees of 2019 but even the yet to be completed 2023 from Yola North local government area. They also fabricated lies that Ahmad has been contacting prominent Adamawa citizens to talk to Governor Fintiri to return him as SSG. All these baseless and unfounded allegations are being hatchet with the sole aim of besmirching Bashir. How Bashir becomes a monster to these gutless and faceless individuals is simply obfuscating.

Since from all intents and purposes, these enemies of Jimeta are not ready to recant their evil machinations, it becomes expedient for me to publish their names as promised for the public to know the real enemies of Jimeta.

Such merchants of conflicts who hide under the cover of the so called critical stakeholders to forment crisis for their whimsical interests include; Kawu Wandala, Bala Hamajoda, Musa Garba, Yayaji Audu Gombi, Mohammed I. Attah, Umaru Liman, Abba Mallam Abba, Sabo Bamanga, Adamu Wakili, Musa Chaye, Usman Danyaro (Kaura), Ibrahim Mijinyawa and Hamidu Sajo Lekki.

The mastermind of all the fabricated campaign of calumny is the unrepentant political heckler, Alh Musa Garba who has confessed by himself to some notable individuals that he has been the sponsor of all the smear campaigns and was seeking to meet with the former SSG. This is because it was just an alibi he was looking for to back his intended write ups.

To say that Malam Ahmad has altered the list of 15-20 would-be appointees from Yola North in 2019 was just a concocted story without grounds. If it was true, many of the politicians some of them from the ‘critical’ stakeholders in Jimeta wouldn’t have been appointed in the first place. The allegations on list of of 2023 was just cooked-up story.

Malam Ahmad has been a long and dogged close ally of Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri. The Governor so much believed in his capacity, truth worthiness and track record. The position is normally being occupied by technocrats and administrators of refute not necessarily politicians. And conversely, the appointment of SSG unlike that of commissioner does not put into consideration the local government of the appointee. Besides, none of these so-called ‘critical’ stakeholders has the capacity to come close to the Governor talk more of recommending someone to him as SSG.

Perhaps the disgruntled politicians engaged in this because of envy as non of them has the CV that could match that of Bashiru Ahmad. He is a qualified Quantity Surveyor and a Fellow of the Nigerian Institute of Quantity Surveyors who has been on the board of Examiners that qualified fellow graduates for over 12 years. He graduated students from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria over a period of 13 years and received no pay as a part-time lecturer.

Being an accomplished Project Manager for over 20 years, Ahmad has served Adamawa State as SSA, Commissioner and just recently Secretary to the Government and in all these capacities, he has touched lives and brought succour and development to not only Yola-North but Adamawa as a whole. Needless to say his contributions to nation building and development even surpasses what he has done at the State level.

Therefore, I challenge the self acclaimed PDP ‘critical’ stakeholders either individually or collectively to bring their CVs or show their contributions to even Yola North as they all are too inconsequential to make any mark at the State not to talk of the nation at large. The people of Yola North should know who is their enemy between Bashiru Ahmad and the so-called stakeholders.
