Maiha 2019: As Haruna Dodo Picks A Ticket to Race For State House Of Assembly



MAIHA 2019: A Race To The State House Of Assembly

Haruna Dodo Picks ADC Ticket

By Haruna Yusuf Abuja

The recent news reports about Maiha local government area of Adamawa state, were on the legitimacy of the monarchy in Jalingo-Maiha District: how the stool was robbed and how it was restored to the legitimate heir: how the imposter claimed to have the backing of the state governor engaged in romance with the contempt of court attempted to instigate violence for anarchy: how the imposter was subdued by the relevant security operatives and eventually, how the judiciary would interpret the silent action of the governor against the court order to approve the appointment of the legitimate heir.

Maiha was said to be in search of peace, legitimate leadership and adequate representation against injustice with impunity.

Now is about political permutations in Maiha, where two candidates have indicated interest of being elected into the state house of assembly, could go for ADC primaries.

Alh. Tijjani Maksha the party’s marksman in Maiha who initially told the electorates that he would not contest and Alh. Haruna Muhammad Dodo who nurtured the support of the teeming youths that would not tolerate hypocrisy.

ADC was commended for adhering to the “not too young to rule philosophy in Adamawa state. Little wonder the encouragement of the capable young men with intellect and strength to be at the vanguard, serving as the voice of the exploited, oppressed and misrepresented voiceless.

Typical of the proverbial payback time, the youths, among the teeming electorates in Maiha local government area of Adamawa state, invited Alh. Haruna Muhammad Dodo to represent the LGA as a legislature with the state house of assembly.

The electorates were reported to have raised money for the ADC nomination form to be able to convince the young Dodo into joining politics because they have tested and trusted the capacity and capability in him

The not too young to rule Dodo, was a cashier with the Maiha local government authority before transferring his service as a lecturer with the Adamawa state polytechnic having been equipped with postgraduate knowledge and character.

Haruna Dodo, the youths in Maiha have revealed, sponsored so many indigent indigenes of Maiha for secondary education and diploma programmes.

The impact of Dodo family, commended for humanitarian services, was said to be additional advantage to the young Dodo.

Haruna Dodo, having collected the expression of interest and the nomination form, told the newsmen that the misrepresentation was what irked the electorates to lure him to the daunting task.

Young Dodo said that his connections, both within and outside the country in addition to his experiences in public service, which was not by accident, would be of great benefit.

“Grassroots need fictional education, effective and efficient healthcare system among other essential amenities.

“Maiha is like left abandoned. The electorates are asking whether they have representatives at all and where they are, should there be any.

“This is the riddle that the electorates want me to work on and Insha Allah, if given the opportunity, Maiha will not be disappointed,” the not too young to rule Dodo said.

It would appear that the issue of SAK would not be accommodated in the community having a unified votes because the byproducts of SAK have humiliated the party that brought them and would still want to ride on the party to win.

Ambassador Adamu Muhammad Dodo an authority in investigative journalism reported to the Periscope Global Investigate that

“Maiha LGA devastated by misrepresentation, destroying the bridge leading to peaceful coexistence; a metaphorical neglect of bridge linking towns, villages and districts with other LGAs

It was not easy, especially during rainy season, for newsmen on investigative mission to Maiha local government area of Adamawa state, Nigeria.

The roads were summarily tough and rough. The area seemed to be left abandoned. The voiceless were disappointed by the would be representational voices.

It was time for declaration soliciting for yet another ruinous tenure, another neglect, another damnation, or so the sage would be pleased to be heard explaining when he would be insisting to be allowed to ask the individual roles of the would be seekers of mandate for 2019 election in resolving conflict surrounding the monarchy in Maiha.

Some youth group guided by a seeming radical ringleader would round up a somewhat dramatic show of shame; demeaning fame, lamenting that it was either a lawmaker who could not even in chorus, join in chanting “nay” or “I” for either of the opinions to be pronounced as “having it”, either based on “majority have it” or at the discretion of he who finalised the decision on passing, to have thought of initiating a bill favourable to his constituency, such as road rehabilitation even the like in Mubi, a functional hospital with adequate manpower and machine and qualitqualitative education in addition to other skills acquisition and empowerment programmes.

Or the representatives who knew abroad, Abuja and only Yola better than where they were mandated to represent. Those who would rather pretentiously, think back by calling back home when they would want to launch a come back; another mandate, kitted in the gown of lies, deceit and incapability they were to admit as not in anyway amounting to weak and wickedness.

Or those around the accounting officer of the state, having a portfolio but lacking the initiatives, the skills and spirit of and in uplifting their constituency over and above self.

“When and where you see the retrogressive elements unite for a common goal, is when the overambitious want to have their constituency degenerate into anarchy occasioned by somewhat superimposed dissension aimed at divide and rule, typical of the crisis associated with the monarchy in Maiha, when they ought to have concentrated in cementing relationship, building bridges for mutual coexistence and harmonious relationship as much as when they ought to have taken seriously, the measures in addressing the issue of collapse bridge, the tough and rough roads” The seeming radical ringleader would remark.

Maiha bridge; the bridge linking Mayo Nguli to Mbilla, Belel and Sorau districts of Maiha LGA and Jabbi-Lamba in Girei LGA is almost about to collapse. The voiceless are looking for a voice that could be heard when this issue is presented.

“Is the Adamawa state governor not from Maiha local government area? You only need to call to his attention, when those who ought to have, who could but couldn’t.” A newsman turned analyst would advance an advice.
excerpt from Ambassador Dodo.

Hajiya Hapsatu Dahiru would corroborate that “there are three bridges in this condition, Lokuwa in Mubi, Buladega and this one in Mayo Nguli and if not mistaken the bridges were build by the same company. Adamawa has become Over Seas territory of Nigeria due to bad roads as if there are no representatives from here.”

It was the kind maze that the young Dodo would salvage Maiha from.

Buni : A tireless and resolute champion 

By Haruna Yusuf 

His excellency, Mai Mala Buni, the executive Governor of Yobe state and the chairman of the ruling all progressive congress (APC) caretaker/Extraordinary national convention.Buni is always known to be a game changer and it is believed he has whatever it takes to turn around the fortunes of his state to the best and also bring back sanity in APC.
Buni’s antecedents stem from the beginning of his political career as a ward councillor at a tender age and rose rather rapidly through the political atmosphere of Yobe to the National/Secretary, now caretaker chairman of the ruling all progressive congress. 

There are times when we make history and there times when history makes us, Buni’s main characteristics are resilience, consistency, knowledge, people -skill, motivational approach and leading by example..What really made him great is, his foresight, vision, strategic planning and ability to serve, a leader par excellence. 

Loyalty is something one should take very seriously, because loyalty is everything, whether it’s a  friendship, relationship or a boss as an example. Putting your trust in someone and being loyal to them is something that is rare this days and hard to come by, people are brought up in different ways based on culture and believes, but what made Buni genuine is loyalty, consistency and honesty at all times, he is brave in his thinking and daring in action, that’s why he accomplishes everything he stands for and this assignment of reconciliation and bringing back sanity in APC is not and would not be an exception.

Today everyone can see Buni’s report card, he has scored extremely well, he has shown prudence especially in the use of merger resources of his state and the assignment of bringing sanity back in the ruling all progressive (congress APC) as the caretaker chairman. He is quite, very peaceful, not a noise maker but delivering on the job he signed for. Even as a National secretary of the ruling party he towered above his contemporaries in being an astute manager of people, a discipline leader and someone to be trusted with the state’s lean treasury to perform miracle, that lends credence to why we should appreciate the courage and sincerity of purpose of this personality in rising to the sacred state and national duty. 

Gov. Buni has so far, proved to be the best in governance and service delivery mandate, a level headed leader who is beyond reproach, he comes as consensus builder and one individual who will never improve himself at the expense of the people of the state, he is known and certified to be an astute manager of people and All-inclusive leader at all times.

Buni before now, has maintained a constraint office of the ruling all progressive congress (APC) National secretary, a role that comes with high visibility, but average  authority, still when judged by how well he was able to operate within the ambit, his records are strong, exemplary, transparent and committed in resolving internal crisis, this offers good example of Buni’s leadership style before emerging the Yobe state Governor.

Gov. Buni Restoring Sanity in APC



Gov. Buni Restoring Sanity in APC 

By Haruna Yusuf Abuja 

The chairman of the ruling All progressive congress (APC) caretaker/Extraordinary National convention committee and the Yobe state Governor, Hon. Mai Mala Buni is an astute manager of people and an all inclusive leader who carries everyone along irrespective of tribe, religion or political inclination. On assumption of office as the caretaker chairman of the ruling all progressive congress, the first and bold step he took was to pay homage/consult to the party leaders, he first visited Bisi Akande who is also relevant in the party politics before meeting with the cofounder Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu to seek for support and advice on how to sanitize and bring back all the aggrieved members who left or stopped participating in the party affairs for one reason or the other.  

The APC caretaker chairman, in his inaugural address after members of the committee were inaugurated assured party members that his led committee would work tirelessly on both short and long term strategies to reposition and bring the lost sanity back to the party, but all he will need is the support and cooperation of the members in other to achieve the reconciliation exercise, all hands must be on deck. 

This is therefore another opportunity for Buni to bring complete sanity 
back in APC, with his courage of conviction and sense of purpose as the national secretary of the party for 5 years, it is time to show the world what he has achieved in the task to chart the critical path to total political and economic emancipation of the people from the grip of PDP in the 2015 general elections. 

With all modesty, one political truth about Buni, is that he is a man gifted with a high degree of intelligence, experience, charismatic leadership and steadfastness needed to fix and restore sanity in APC, with his political insight in the game. Hon. Mai Mala Buni is among those who ushered in the current political dispensation and was the pioneer Yobe state chairman of the Action congress (AC) and later the All Nigeria People Party (ANPP) who are both legacy of APC. 

No one can go back in time to change what has happened, so, let’s work on the present to make our party one united family and stronger, Buni said. politicians will always have one of their own because the National chairman of the ruling  All progressive congress (APC) Hon. Mai Mala Buni was Born and bred by politics, he became a councillor when the NRC and SDP were birthed. Records of Buni’s Journey through the maze of Nigeria politics indicates that though he may have been or still is the most charismatic and industrious servant, his sweetest dreams somehow always seem to evade him at the moment he needs them the most. 

Gov. Buni is one man you’ll always want in your corner during political battle s, his frankness on issues is second to none and always maintained his word. In his few days as the National Chairman of the ruling all progressive congress (APC) he demonstrated to party members and Nigeria as a whole that ” he who calls for equity must come with clean hands” making it clear that the party can contain all and sundry, also ready and willing to resolve all issues with every aggrieved member. That the door is always opened for negotiation and welcoming new members to the progressives. 

Mai Mala Buni is known as Mr “Fixer” on his assumption of office he has received Dogara Yakubu and Senator Isah Misau the two powerful political gladiators from Bauchi, Returnees from across the states and he reconciled Edo/Ondo and put in place machineries ahead of the elections.
He reconciled all the APC state chairmen and pleaded with all the aggrieved party members who left to come back and partake in the affairs of the party, that’s the beginning of the return of sanity in APC.

The first achievement was on education, as education is the first priority of a child, been the fountain of knowledge that we are branded as, and education can become a means to an end, and can be deployed for economic growth and ensure it makes significant impacts in the life of the society.

The infrastructural sector in Buni’s government is one of a kind, in the course of giving dividend of democracy to the people. His administration keyed into projects that will impact directly in the life of the people, projects that enhance economic development and social stability in the state.

Free Dialysis for kidney patients and free medical services for pregnant women till they give birth, medical service for accident victims irrespective of state, if you’re in Yobe or it occurred around the state.

Gov. Buni’s government empowers youths, women and less privileged through state emergency management (SEMA) and sustainable development Goals (SDGs) training and empowering them with necessary equipment and cash to takeoff. 

Buni’s frankness on issues is second to none, he says it as it is, to whoever it is, at whatever time matters come to a head, that’s why he is known to be a man with few words.
