Adamu Atiku Abubakar: When a Son step into his father shoe as sardaunan Ganye By Muazu Abari

In his theory of inheritance john walter Bratton said that”The best inheritance a parent can give his children is  good example “Benjamin  Disraecli  added that”The legacies of hereos is the memory of a great name  and the inheritance of a  great example while,on his part,wally schirra asserted that”you dont raise heroes you raise sons .if you treat them like sons  they will turned out to be heroes even if it is just within  your own eyes”

The above postulations by these eminent phylosophers seems to be in tandem with the dreams,prayers  and examplify the reality,charecter and family history of the former vice president Atiku Abubakar known for his phylanthropy,wealth creation,passion for education and commitments to Nation building and whose children continued to grow on the path of honour and decency becoming heroes in his own eyes and fastly fitting into his big shoes especially in politics, businesses and traditional sphere.

Atikus  75 years of sojourn on this planet earth is a life of fulfilements and Allah mercies and  favours as god did not only blessed him with wealth,influences and fame but also with wonderful,promising and hardworking children who are anxious to fill in the gap he may have leave by following his footsteps especially in politics,business and phylanthropy and to also create their own history that will make him proud as a father.

The turbaning of his eldest son Adamu Adamawa state commissioner for works as the new sardaunan Ganye believed to be the brain box of Fintiris administration at a time that he is making his marks in politics and public space having already fit into his father shoe in business with increased pressures on him to take a shot at the senetorial seat of Adamawa South come 2023 is seen in most quarter’s as Atiku most memorial birthday gift he will never forget in a hurry.

In all his life endeavours Adamu have always proved to be a true son of his father  in words,actions and deeds where he succeeded to utilised all god given opportunities that comes to his way to add value to humanity and changed the fortunes of so many people,families and communities with his  large heartedness and humanitarian gestures that defined him.A determine, focus,talented ,energetic and promising young man and a shining example of sincerity ,honesty and compassion who always combined brainwork and physical strength to achieved results whenever he is assigned with a responsibility.

.

Upon his graduation from london university he joined the private sector where he continued to proved his leadership acumen and torched the lives of so many people especially the downtrodden using his position and god given wealth quietly from the background away from the  public eyes which endeared him to the hearts of the people who see him as a replacement to his father known for his phylanthropy and love for the common man.

While,still working in the private sector where he rosed steadily through sheer dint of hardwork,commitments and dedication to duty to become acting.assistant General manager of Intel’s Nigeria limited the passion to contributes his quota to the political development of his state left him with no option than to pitched his tend with the gubernatorial ambition of Gov.Ahmadu Fintiri where he played a critical roles and participated actively in the political campaign that led to Fintiris emergenced as governor after which he was appointed as commissioner for works and energy development to bring his wealth of experience and private sector connections to bear on the admimistration and governance of the state.

As a commissioner Adamu has performed credibly well with so many achievements recorded  in his ministry especially in the area of projects execution,competency and credibility demonstrated in the discharged of his duties which increased his political popularity and endeared him to the hearts of the people of Adamawa state and fintiris administration who see him as a pillar,,trusted and dependable ally in the services of the people of Adamawa state.

His imputs,guidance and visionary ideas  have come to bear in the new concept of development which was hithertoo unknown to the people of the state introduced into the state  by  fintiri  in the last two years and massive infrastructural drive that completely changed the face of development in the state with constructions of the first ever flyovers in the North East with interchange, constructions of rural an urban roas across the state,completion of abondoned one among other urban renewal drive.

His humanitarian gestures and supports to families,communities and individuals  knows no bound especially in the areas of community development service, education,youths empowerment among others which endeared him to the hearts of the masses who see him as a beacon of hope and Salvation who have been adding value to his peoole and the Government.

It is therefore,not surprising that,the Ganwari Ganye HRH Alh.Umaru Adamu sanda recognised his efforts and contributions and bestowed him with the traditional tittle of ” Sardaunan Ganye”a tittle relinquished by his father along side other illustrous sons of the chiefdom with all roads lead to Ganye last Saturday was barricated with people across the length and breadth of the country who stormed the State to witnessed his coronation as the second sardaunan Ganye .

Speaking at the event,the Ganwari Ganye Alh.Umaru sanda said that the decision by Ganye chiefdom  to bestowed this traditional tittle of sardaunan Ganye on Adamu Atiku Abubakar among other illustrous sons and daughters of the chiefdom is due to their numerous contributions to the development of the state and amazing roles they continued to played in promoting the goals of Ganye chiefdom over the years .

This according to him,will not only encouraged them to keep on putting in their best for their people and the state  but will also inspire others to followed their footsteps assuaring that,the chiefdom will continued to honour its illustrous sons and daughters who have distinquished themselves as he applauded fintiris administration for elevating the standard of education and security in the state and for his massive infrastructural drive which have changed the face of development in the state.

On his part,The chairman of the occation sen.Abdul Ningi re-emphasise the importance of traditional rulers and roles of tittles holders in ensuring  peace, security and development of the society and urged them to justify the confidence reposed on them for the betterment of their people.

“This occation must be seen beyond the funfare and be regarded as a deserving reward’s to the celebrants  for bringing home various laurels in their individual pursuits that made the chiefdom and Adamawa proud.I therefore,congratulates  the new tittles holders  for meriting  and deserving to be bestowed with their various tittles  i consider this as a vote of confidence  and assuarance of high esteem for our Government.it is also re assuaring that trust is intact and affirmation that the government is on the right tract”

“As a responsible government we are committed to the ideals of effective commmunity governance  which can only be attained through constructive engagement with traditional institution’s over the years it has become increasingly visible that traditional authority  play a key role in security and communal vigilance particularly in the fight against insurgency,banditry  and cattle rustling”

The Governor added that

“Since assuming office two years ago ,this government had waged a frontal but cordinated revolution in all faces of development which have unleashed  good and responsible governance.i have remained committed in keeping with all the critical promises i made .while the demands to delivered on this promises is the debt i owe the Adamawa people,the ability to settle this I.O.u is my obligation to you”

“Am glad that  Ganye chiefdom opens its door to the government as a hub of resource for patronage and happily the sons and daughters we are celebrating today are in the forefront in making Adamawa state great again .i have continued to regard Ganye  as a home not only for the warm reception i have always been accorded each time am here but because of the nostalgia i feel when i recall that it is the chiefdom where i kick-started  my successful gubernatorial bid in December 2018”

Speaking to journalists in an interview the mother of the new sardaunan Ganye  and wife of the former vice president Atiku Abubakar Hajiya Amina Titi Atiku Abubakar said”Am so elated and happy the younger generation need to be brought home and closer to the community to understand traditions and customs of their people.Apart from his position as a commissioner he is now an ambassador to the people of the community which is an added responsibility i know what he can do he is a sympathetic person i have no doubt that he will justify the confidence reposed on him “

“We all come from villages if you dont go home  you have missed it also the people will not know you  and we dont want the family name to go into extinction so you have to start teaching your children these tribal things  i pray that God almighty will see him through”

With these coronation and added responsibility given to him adamu have now step into another shoe of his father who have done well for traditional institution’s that led to his elevation as wazirin Adamawa the second in command after lamido in Adamawa emirate council it remain to be seen how he will adeguately fit into this shoe of his father amids so many responsibilities  in his hands but going by his antecedents most people believed that he is a round peg in a round hole and willl lived up to expectations in this added responsibility.

APC National Convention: it is irresponsible To Call For Sack Gov. Buni Led CECPC

APC National Convention: It is irresponsible to call for sack Gov Buni led CECPC

Yusuf Ali

It is irresponsible to call for sack of the well constituted and highly celebrated action-packed Governor Buni led Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, All Progressives Congress over the planned national convention of the party. Uptil now, the CECPC has not told anybody that it is not going to conduct the party’s national convention after it has successfully conducted Ward, Local and State Congresses as it said that it is only embarking on nationwide consultations with Party leaders and stakeholders to prepare the ground for a rancour-free National Convention.

It is very wrong for anybody to say that Governor Buni is holding on to the seat to score political goals. For the avoidance of doubt, Buni is a sitting governor that has his second term fully secured in 2023 if he decides to run. The people of Yobe state who overwhelmingly voted for him in 2019 are extremely happy and ready to return him to consolidate on the solid transformation of Yobe state as truly the pride of the Sahel.

Let me say that this call for the sack of the Governor Buni led Caretaker Committee amounts to playing dirty politics, and it is cheap and irresponsible. In fact, Nothing can be more irresponsible and reckless, as such a statement. Nobody in his right senses will call for the sack of the focused and result-oriented Governor Buni led Caretaker Committee.

The Governor Buni led CECPC was legally constituted by the 8th resumed of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the All Progressives Congress APC which constituted the Caretaker Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee in place of the dissolved National Working Committee (NWC) of the party. It has performed tremendously well in rebuilding and repisitioning the party for greatness. No amount of hysterical calls for resignation will prevent it from carrying out its constitutional mandate. As a progressive governing party guided by its rules, the CECPC will continue to take the right steps and follow due process in carrying out its activities, in this case the planned national convention is sacrosanct. The APC as a party for all will continue to act on its words.

Let it be known that the Governor Buni led CECPC is not in anyway against the conduct of the all-important exercise as planned it only wanted a rancour-free national convention. If some of the pending issues related to fallout of the Congresses in some states are not amicably resolved it will further polarise the party during and even after the convention. The focus remains that achieving and sustaining the APC Caretaker Committee’s peace and reconciliation core mandate wrapping up with credible national convention is all the more gratifying.

Before the CECPC, the governing party is on the verge of collapse and disintegration. As the Chairman of the CECPC, Governor Buni has been a steady hand in troubled times, and that explains why leading the governing All Progressives Congress at a most turbulent period, he has managed the crisis to bring peace to the party and safe it from disintegration, and even set it on a trajectory of success for the coming national convention and ahead of the 2023 general elections.

For a large and governing party with so many crisis points and conflicting interests like the APC, Governor Mai Mala Buni has always toed the line of compromise, temperance and internal democracy as well as tackled internal squabbles when they have occured as a family affair. He is a stabilising factor and voice that is generally accepted and has successfully forged a common ground among all the interests in the governing party.

Governor Buni is well positioned to stabilize the party and ensure synergy between the party, members and the government. He has shown a capacity to steer the party to stability and remains a strategic political asset to the APC and government.

Buni is not a dictator. As the Chairman APC Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee CECPC, because of his background, he has listened, engaged, accommodated and gave a sense of belonging to every member of our great party.

As a principled leader, Buni has always exercised persuasive powers and negotiating skills in the execution of his responsibilities. It is this power of persuation, tact and diplomacy that endeared him to his colleagues (Governors), and all the leaders of the party across the country.

He has brought his natural abilities as a gentleman, peacemaker and a stabilizing voice to resolve many disagreement and Internal conflict in the party.

Hon. Mai Mala Buni has ensured that meeting of party organs under the CECPC are held regularly. It is only when the party’s leadership meet constantly that it will agree and disagree on issues and resolve matters in the interest of the party.

Buni has used his position to ensure a strong and progressive party institution that will continue to make Nigeria great and will continue to bring the party together becsuse he is focused and knows the issues.

Hon Mai Mala Buni has written his name in gold as he takes on the bold steps in rebuilding and repositioning APC ahead of the national convention and the 2023 general elections.

He has designed a medium, and long term development of our strategies and internal organization to support our public standing as well as our chances of electoral successes in all future elections.

Re: Buni, Malami Move To Block Convention, Governors Rise Against interim Party Chair

RE: Buni, Malami Move To Block Convention, Governors Rise Against Interim Party Chair

By Yusuf Ali

These days, so many people are saying so many things; indulging mostly in sponsored attacks, and ficticious lies in the pages of Newspapers on the activities of Governor Buni led CECPC, and as spokepersons, we make the deliberate choice of staying out of the most part because it is not worth replying.

But it is hard to ignore the above publication in the Punch Newspaper of 12 January, 2022 which, according to the reports, a party leader who confided to their correspondents is making the false claims that Governor Buni and the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami SAN are delaying the APC National Convention because he (Governor Buni) has a Vice Presidential ambition. Nothing could be further from the truth.

We are concious of the devilish plans being orchestrated by some mischievous elements to cause disaffection between our leaders and to distract the Governor Buni led Caretaker Committee from it’s national assignments of putting the APC family house in order ahead of the national convention.

It is important to note that, at the level the Governor Buni led Caretaker Committee is working, there should be no need to be doubtful about whether our great party, APC will be having it’s national convention after successfully completed the Ward, Local and State Congresses.

It will be recall that after the end of the year 2021 meeting of the Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) on Monday, December 20, 2021 and in the APC 2022 New Year Message, both signed by the Secretary, Sen. John James Akpanudoedehe, there was confirmation that planning for the National Convention has commenced. Members and the general public have been put on notice that relevant committees will be setup. The only problem hindering the Governor Buni led CECPC to move to the next level is the unresolved issues of reconciliation in some states. Although the Senator Abdullahi Adamu led National Reconciliation Committee is working round the clock to meet it’s dateline, the reality is that it’s not advisable for the governing APC, a party with so many crisis points and conflicting interests to go for national convention with a divided house.

This is the truth of the matter and not the ficticious lies some people are dishing to misled gullible Nigerians.

For the avoidance of doubts, Governor Mai Mala Buni has not told anybody that he has a presidential ambition. These are mere speculations in the Newspapers. Governor Buni has accepted to serve as the APC Chairman Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) because of his love and loyalty to the party that promised brighter days for Nigeria and all Nigerians. He is contributing in this capacity to help develop a strong progressive party institution that can be impactful in the local, state and the national level. He has devoted his life, energy and time to be able to do that. When he is working rebuilding and repositioning the party, first thing comes first. We have to have a structure first. If people start with rebuilding a party today and deciding to become a presidential candidate tomorrow, actually you are trying to destroy the basis of rebuilding the party, because everybody will have ambition.

There are time for everything and Governor Mai Mala Buni has no ambition. As a practicing Muslim and faith in God, he knows that leadership belongs to Almighty God, He gives it whom He wills and takes it from whom He wills none has power to out pass His verdicts. But let it be known that Governor Buni has no ambition. He has not told anyone that he wants to be President or Vice President.

At this juncture, it is important to point out that Governor Mai Mala Buni is not an ambitious politician but a leader with all the qualities of leadership. It is on record that leadership positions and responsibilities was always entrusted on him because of his judgement and respected for his expertise, integrity, etc and hence followed and not because he hold a certain position. He was APC Chairman Yobe State, National Secretary and today by the special grace of God he is serving Governor and Chairman APC Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, positions that he has never aspired but entrusted on him because of his leadership qualities.

At this level and time, what the Governor Buni led Caretaker Committee needs is support from across party ranks to achieve maximum reconciliation for the governing party to go for the national convention as one united family ahead of the 2023 general elections.

We must also acknowledged the marvellous achievements of the Governor Buni led Caretaker Committee, attracting three serving Governors to APC and reconciling many aggrieved members that added to the strength of the party. APC is growing in leaps and bounds.

As the Governor Buni led CECPC prepares for the national convention, we appeal to every party member and supporter to seek above everything else the unity and peace of this great party. The party must remain a strong political entity before, during and after the convention.

We should not forget the bigger challenge ahead of us in 2023, the presidential election without Buhari on the ballot. We cannot go into it divided nor can we win the trophy in such a state. We should all uphold the ideas of the party and give it unflinching support for it’s affairs as we journey into the national convention.
