Habu Dan Arewa and the Failed Game Of His Puppet Master.
By: Inuwa Bwala
There are new twists in the narrative about the Adamawa by-election saga.Those who ganged up and manipulated the process from the beginning are now looking for a fall guy and Kashim Shettima, the Vice President elect seems to fit their calculations.
One does not need to plead innuendo to know their identities, nor does one require a talisman to tell about their antics.
They obviously had their individual grudges and motives, but were united in their anger against the APC and hatred for the APC candidate, popularly called Binani.
As far as they are concerned, let it even be a third rate political party, but the APC and let even the devil be, but certainly not Binani. And they may have succeeded, though certainly it is not yet uhuru.
Like people say, when the crocodile eats its own eggs, there is no saving the flesh of frogs and lesser sea animals. This seems to be the situation, where we have hunt dogs being unleashed on people who were neither parties nor even have stakes in the particular exercise.
How otherwise could the Vice President elect, Kashim Shettima, be blamed, for an act in which everyone knows the key players.
I listened to an audio made out by one Dan Arewa, and for anybody who understands Hausa, the name applies to every northerner and not any specific person.
The fact that his identity us subsumed in a sea of doubt, presupposes that his assumptions are not only doubtful but also unreliable.
The first question I asked myself on listening to the audio was,, why should somebody like Nuhu Ribadu: who ostensibly is the architect try to hide the identity of his cannon fodder?
The next thought that crossed my mind again was why hold another man responsible for the actions of another man, even when it is obvious that the person in question had no particular stake in an election that could be er have any effect on his own political fortunes?
Every attempt at getting answers to these and other posers, seem to open further windows to the obvious mischief, that informed the fresh twist.
Amongst those who obviously masterminded the conspiracy to embarrass Kashim Shettima, none of them is today a match to this rising political maverick called Kashim Shettima.
As far as I am concerned neither the so called Uba Dan Arewa nor his pay master, Nuhu Ribadu seem to have cut the ice with this new narrative, and I think Kashim Shettima does not even need to respond as critical observer could see through the obvious mischief.

That Kashim Shettima is the Vice President elect us no longer in doubt. I dare say, that, the fear of a Kashim Shettima Vice Presidency is not lost in those who think they can manipulate a Tiny u Presidency, without having to contend with Shettima.
I pity the likes of Nuhu Ribadu, who has been hoping to leverage in his relationship with Tinubu to edge Shettima into the corner, as such a possibility shall remain a pipe dream, so long as Shettima is around Tinubu.
No Nigerian is in doubt about Kashim Shettima’s capacity, to checkmate any emergent threat to this hard fought Presidency.
No Nigerian can ever fail to appreciate Kashim Shettima’s demonstrable intellectual acumen, nay political sagacity to hold back any potential intruder into his bond with Asiwaju.
It is rather infantile that an incoherent hireling like Habu Dan Arewa: real or imagined, to try standing facts on the head, just to please a paymaster.

May 29 : Borno APC Laud Gov Zulum For Landmark Achievements In One Year

By Francis Okoye

The All Progressives Congress ( APC ) , Borno state Chapter has commended the state Governor, Babagana Zulum for the execution of over 100 people oriented solid capital projects in the first one year of his second tenure in office.

The state’s party Chairman of APC , Hon. Ayuba Bello made the commendation on Tuesday in Maiduguri in an interview with Journalists on the Governor’s performance ahead of the one year anniversary of his second term in office coming up on 29th of May, 2024.

Hon. Bello who is on record the first ruling APC Chairman to be elected from the minority southern part of Borno state since the inception of democracy, added that the popularity of Governor Zulum across the country is based on his hardwork, respect for the poor, commitment and high sense of responsibility towards governance.

He said even if one is from the opposition party, with humility and maturity, such person would agree that Zulum’s administration has performed greatly in the past one year since his projects are seen on ground.

The state party Chairman said,” As far as Iam concerned and the APC Chairman in Borno state is concerned, if you ask me to rate the performance of his Excellency for the past one year, it is exemplary, he has excelled in infrastructural performance.

” When you go round the country, you hardly find a Governor, who had done credibly well in terms of infrastructural development like Zulum’s administration. If somebody can carry out over 100 people oriented solid capital projects life on ground, honestly speaking, he deserve commendation.

” Even if you are not in APC, if you humility and maturity of mind, you would agree with me that this person has done greatly well. When you go round to the 27 local government areas of the state with exception of Guzamala, you will identify 10 to 20 capital projects that were executed by Governor Zulum.

” And they are people oriented projects, minor projects such as drilling of boreholes are not even counted. We are very proud of him, as a party, we are solidly behind him.”

On his election as chairman of the party from the minority southern part of Borno being the first in history, he said the party did it to balance the equation of leadership and giving the other side of the state a sense of belonging.

He said he enjoys followership and loyalty from all party members across the state, adding that structure put in place which is visible across the 27 local government areas of the state is reason the party would continue to dominate power in every election year.

Re-run election into the national assembly, a Triumph of Democracy – Kwande

By: Bodunrin Kayode

A Plateau elder Ambassador Yahaya Kwande has described the just concluded re-run election into the national assembly as a Triumph of Democracy.

In a release titled Congratulations to the Winners of Plateau State Bye Elections of February 3, 2024, he noted that the entire exercise was a victory to the people of the state.

“With great joy and profound gratitude, I extend my heartfelt congratulations to the newly elected Senator, (Plateau North Senatorial District), Prince Pam Mwadkwon Dachungyang, and the Member of the House of Representatives, (Jos North/Bassa Constituency), Hon. Daniel Asama, on their resounding victory in the recently concluded bye election held in Plateau State.

“Your triumph is a testament to the true spirit of democracy and the unwavering support of the people.

“I have no doubt that both Prince Pam Mwadkon and Hon. Daniel Asama will live up to the aspirations and expectations of the voters, as they embark on this noble responsibility of representing their constituents. May your tenure be marked by dedication, integrity, and a relentless pursuit of progress for our beloved state and nation.

It is my sincere hope that Plateau State will swiftly recover from the divisions and tussles that marred our unity. Let us unite as one, for the strength of our state lies in our togetherness.

“It is essential for the government and the people to undertake immediate measures to reconcile and bridge the gaps that have emerged. We must never forget that every citizen, irrespective of their religion or ethnicity, is entitled to their fundamental rights. The use of religion as a tool of disfranchisement must cease; we must affirm that citizenship rights are not conditional on faith.

“Let us also strive to recapture the lost glory of our state, when Jos was hailed as the political Mecca of Nigeria, attracting momentous political events and embracing politicians from all shades and ideologies. We can revive this legacy by nurturing an environment that exudes peace, openness, and security for all. Together, we can restore Plateau State as a beacon of democratic excellence.

“In conclusion, I express my utmost optimism for the future of Plateau State. I extend my deepest appreciation to all who peacefully participated in the bye election, be it as candidates or enthusiastic supporters. Our journey towards progress and development continues, and I am confident that we will stand united, empowered by the unwavering spirit of our people.” said Kwande.
