Rejoinder on the publication captioned 155 persons died in Yobe to suspected corona virus symptom – By Sahara reporters



Rejoinder on the publication captioned 155 persons died in Yobe to suspected Corona virus symptom- by Sahara reporters.


Our attention has been drawn to a mischievious publication of 6/5/2020 in Sahara reporters online newspaper that captioned 155 persons died in Yobe over suspected symptom of Corona virus.

It is unfortunate that an esteem online newspaper has not got it’s publication right this time. We want to make it crystal that nothing of such happened in Yobe state.

Yobe state happened to be the first Nigeria’s state that test the sample of the virus in the country, we find the headline alarming and untrue and must be regarded as such.

When respected experts fall prey to pressures of their paymasters without applying their inner minds, one more notch is added to the insidious build up of disinformation relating to the actual facts of legitimate aspiration of Yobe state Government, under the able and outstanding leadership  of his Excellency, Hon. Mai Mala Buni.

The publication by Sahara reporters is so blatantly mischievious that one is dismayed at the level to which our worthy “acclaimed” Sahara reporters have chosen to fall, they need to note that Yobe state Government that disciplined and outstanding does not imply accepting rubblsh, even when it is presented with the insidious mole wrapped in red tape.

However, in the past few weeks, the elaborate misleading publication and campaign of falsehood orchestrated by Sahara reporters is condencending to the ethics of journalism. Their complicity in the mischievious publication necessitate in our view, a response, not only to set the facts straight but more importantly to demonstrate that Sahara reporters attacks on the character and integrity of Gov. Buni who is working tirelessly on taking Yobe to the next level of developmental change, is unfounded in bad faith, and obviously laden with sinister motives.

It is public knowledge that several mischievious and maliious publications were carried by Sahara reporters to tarnish the government of Yobe under the leadership of his Excellency, Hon. Mai Mala Buni.

” Whoa – is this how mountains are made out of mole hills” ? What deviousness!

The story demonstrates the height of ignorance displayed by Sahara reporters’ policy and standard universal practice in Journalism. Sahara reporters proposed in it’s story demonstrates a misunderstanding of elementary facts and logic of issues of national interest. A novel pandemic ravaging the entire world. This is ridiculous.

This is clearly another example of poor Journalism and an attempt by Sahara reporters and embittered interest groups to cause mischief and create chaos in the state and it is totally unacceptable and should be considered as such.

Decent Journalism requires at least a minimum ethical standard of reportage, this is not, we cannot stop Sahara reporters from reflexively  attacking our government but it should, in the interest of Journalism ethics and it’s readers, do it’s homework properly before coming to the media. And criticism should be constructively not by hearsay.

Despite Yobe’s prudent management of funds, His Excellency, Hon. Mai Mala Buni, the executive Gov of Yobe state, Spoke through his Director of press Mamman Mohammed said none of the projects that the governor inherited from the past administration or initiated have stopped since his assumption of office one year ago. His words: “Actually, all projects initiated or taken over by this administration are seeing the light of the day in terms of completion. One key project that I want you to note is the airport.

You are aware that this is a multi billion naira project initiated by the previous administration and as we talk now , we are expected to witness the first test landing at the runway which is a sign that the project is nearing completion. It’s a very capital intensive project running into billions of naira but this administration is completing the project.

“Again, if you look at the road project, this administration inherited some road projects that were initiated by the previous administration, like the Damaturu/Kallawan airport road dualization, 4km Damaturu/Potiskum road dualization and many others.

“One thing you should note is that none of the projects either initiated or inherited by this administration is suffering due to the prudent management of the state resources by Governor Mai Mala Buni.

“The governor had also announced that he will expand or build new primary healthcare centers in the 178 political wards in the state.

As we speak now, 53 have been completed and we still have three years to go in the administration. If we can do this in the first year, you can imagine what will happen in the next three years running.

“You remember the moribund factories in the state; the Aluminum, the Woven sacks and the Floor Mills which were abandoned for over ten years but this administration has revived them by investing resources in them and today all are producing at optimal capacity generating revenue to the state coffers and providing employment opportunities for the youth of the state.

“In the area of Education, the administration has also constructed seven model primary schools across the state. Five of such schools have been completed and the remaining two are 90 percent completed. Each of the schools is made up of a story build with 30 standardized class rooms.

These are project that is aimed to improve the standard of education in the state. Over three thousand Teachers were trained and retrained, about ten thousand teachers has been promoted.

“You can see that this administration has identified very key areas that have touched the lives of the people of the state positively. But to be direct, Governor Mai Mala Buni has never stopped any project as result of any financial problem.”
