Constituents Reject Ramadan Gifts from Anti-Nyako Lawmakers
Some lawmakers of the Adamawa State House of Assembly linked with the impeachment move against Governor Murtala Nyako and his deputy, Bala Ngillari, have had their Ramadan gifts rejected by their constituents.
Some of those affected include the members representing, Mubi North, Abubakar Umar Jaringo, Girei constituency, Abubakar Umar, and the member representing Maiha Local Government, Hassan Kaigama.
It was gathered that the constituents took the unusual step to show their displeasure over the alleged involvement of the affected lawmakers in the impeachment plot.
The constituencies took the measure to protest the involvement of their lawmakers in the plot to impeach Governor Nyako and his deputy. “That is not what we sent them there to do,” said a resident of Mubi, Mallam Idris Haruna. “The people of Mubi have decided to reject the Ramadan gift from their member to show him their disappointment over his involvement to remove Governor Nyako and his deputy.”
Angry Idris said they regretted voting for Jaringol, as his actions were always contrary to their wishes, adding that before he got entangled in the move to impeach the governor he never deemed it right to consult with the people on whose mandate he went to the assembly.
“It is unfortunate that the member could not even listen to our most cherished traditional leader, His Highness the Emir of Mubi. The member has never registered with us since we elected him into the assembly as the only member elected on the platform of the defunct CPC, now APC, only for us to hear that he has defected to the PDP. And as if that was not enough sin, he is now involved in the plot to remove our governor, against our wishes,” he said.
Hon. Abubakar Umar received a similar treatment in Girei. The people vowed never to do anything with the member because he has betrayed them. “We will never have anything to do with a traitor, we prefer to die hungry than collect a Greek gift from him,” Ladan Ibrahim said. “Very soon, we will start the recall process against him as we felt betrayed by his actions.”
Also in the firing line is the member representing Maiha, Hassan Kaigama, whom the constituents promised to teach a bitter lesson for the ignoble role he played in the impeachment saga.
Mr Yohanna David, who spoke on behalf of Maiha Concerned Citizens, said the constituency had resolved to deal with the member if he did not retrace his steps from the impeachment move against the governor and his deputy. “We expected them to consult us before he blindly supported the move for the impeachment of Governor Nyako and his deputy. We call on him to retrace his steps before it is too late,” said David.
A resident of Gerei, Malam Saidu Girei said, “We may be poor but we have not lost our sense of fairness. We cannot accept gifts from traitors.”
