Democratic Tyranny: Defective Defection, Desperados’ Theatre Staging Deceptive Endorsement, Staring Impersonators In Adamawa – ADC Leadership
By Adamu Mohammed Dodo, Yola
- Neither the Chairman Adamawa ADC nor the Chairman Adamawa APC participated in the theatrical act of desperation; endorsing a gubernatorial aspirant whose party is far from deciding
- The somewhat caricature ADC members, defected to APC, arrogating to themselves the political perception of the members, in their desperation, endorsing a governorship aspirant, are impliedly working on taking over the APC in Adamawa and in their perhaps sponsored exhibition of deceptive strength of a seeming desperate governorship aspirant to intimidate the would be aspirants; a democratic tyranny
Attention of the genuine leadership of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, at both the state and national levels, is drawn to embarrassing, flat and disinteresting play, staging defective defection as a thematic preoccupation, in a seeming fraudulent theatre, with both actors and spectators as participants in a self-deception, where the so-called 17 ADC local government chairmen with their supporters in Adamawa state were showcased as not only defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC, they also rather embarrassingly, in their seeming sponsored desperation, endorsed a gubernatorial aspirant in the state, with much speech than the actual members met in the party
Speaking to the Periscope in Abuja, the ADC chairman Adamawa state, Hon Arabi Mustapha denied that the claimants, who allegedly staged defective defection, were in anyway holding leadership positions in ADC as a party as much as their so-called doubful supporters were in anyway card carrying members of the party.
According to media reports, “the drive by Hon. Abdulrazak Namdas to secure the gubernatorial ticket of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) got a tremendous impetus today as 17 chairmen of African Democratic Congress (ADC), other officials of the party alongside thousands of their supporters defected to APC and endorsed Namdas’ gubernatorial aspiration.
“Leader of the ADC group and secretary of the party in the state, Abubakar Babajo noted that they took the decision because of the belief that Namdas has what it takes to salvage the state from its current state of underdevelopment”.
Arabi said the obnoxious impersonation and fraudulent show are theatrically comical. “It’s simply typical of a burlesque.
“Abubakar Babajo isn’t anymore of our party secretary. He was among those earlier dissolved with the termination of their acting tenure long ago. Those presented as leaders of the party at the local governments level are also not recognised as such by the ADC leadership at both the state and national levels.
“It’s undeniable that I, Arabi Mustapha, am the ADC Adamawa state chairman, the secretary remains Comrade Yohanna Shehu and Ahmed Abdulkadir is the youth leader.
“We’re are being mandated to reconstitute the executive members of the party with full portfolio in the state, conduct wards congress and lead the party to victory.
“The leadership at the local governments level is yet to be reconstituted after the dissolution. Meaning that the impostors are intolerably staging a defective script in a deceptive theatre. The APC leadership and the electorates in Adamawa should note this.
“Isn’t it rather too early, endorsing a candidate before other, perhaps most credible, capable competent and most needed capacity are invited to the contest?
Borno PDP Alleges Poor Execution of Projects By Zulum, As APC Ruling Party Chairman, Dalori Denies PDP Existence
Borno PDP alleges poor execution of projects by Gov Zulum, as APC ruling Party Chairman, Dalori denies PDP existence
By Ndahi Marama, Maiduguri
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Borno Chapter has alleged that most projects executed under the leadership of Governor Babagana Umara Zulum, especially the much talked about N4.3 billion Customs Flyover commissioned by President Muhammadu Buhari last December 2021 have indicated cracks in some portions.
But reacting, the Borno State Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Hon Ali Bukar Dalori described the allegation as untrue, baseless and mere saying, as there is no evidence of genuine PDP, as an opposition existing in Borno state.
According to a press statement signed and issued to Journalists by the opposition PDP Publicity Secretary, Mr Amos Adziba alleged that, “it received with dismay calls and messages from concerned citizens of Borno State expressing their concern for public safety and wastages of public funds on substandard projects by the Borno State Government over the years.
“The calls follows reports of impending collapse of the just concluded Customs fly-over bridge that gulped over four (4.3) Billion naira project, which was just commissioned by Mr. President last December, 2021.
“It is the responsibility of all citizens, which all our party leadership, members, and all citizens of Borno state to activate vigilance and demand for accountability from Governor Zulum’s led administration in the state, because vigilance and demand for good governance is the price we as citizens must pay to safeguard democracy and public safety.
“Our State have witnessed lots of losses of unquantifiable level over the last one decade and at this stage of recovery, while we still have numerous security challenges to face, we as a state cannot afford to waste such huge public finance on projects that are not well thought of, well designed and well executed within the global best practices standards.
“We therefore, condemn in total, such poor infrastructure development that aside wasting hug public funds, portend a serious danger to lives of our citizens plying the routes.” Said the PDP spokesman.
Meanwhile, the ruling APC Chairman, Hon Dalori however advised the factional group of PDP which Mr Amos Adziba paraded himself as Publicity Secretary to face their court cases filed by the genuine PDP Chairman in the state, Hon Mahdi Baderi, which is still pending.
He noted that there is no need to join issues with a factional opposition party claimed to be PDP leaders, but for the purpose of clarity, the ruling APC under his chairmanship deem it necessary to keep the general public abreast on campaign of calumny against Governor Zulum by Amos Adziba who claimed to be publicly Secretary of Zanna Gadama led -faction of the PDP in Borno state.
“Dalori said, instead of the Factional PDP led by Zanna Gadama as Chairman and Amos Adziba as Publicity secretary to face their court cases, it is unfortunate that this group have chose to create lies against the committed and transparent execution of people oriented projects under the leadership of governor Babagana Umara Zulum.
“Since inception of this present administration, Zulum has executed over 600 projects comprised of roads and drainage networks, hospitals, schools which have been attested to be in good standard by notable Engineers, and that is why even the President of the Nigerian Society of Engineers, NSE, Engr. Babagana Mohammed, FNSE, while in a state visit to Borno applaued Zulum’s projects after he inspected them recently.” Dalori said.
He added that the said Customs Flyover which was commissioned in December last year was adjudged to be the best not only in the north east sub region, but the country as a whole, considering the paucity of fund challenges faced by the present administration which is poised to end the over decades atrocities posed by insurgents.

National Convention: Group commends Buni’s leadership urges CECPC to remain focus on reconciliation, party unity
By Yusuf Ali, Abuja
The APC Advancement Group (TAAG), has commended the leadership of Governor Mai Mala Buni for stability in APC urged the Caretaker Committee not to be distracted by the antics of some unpatriotic elements within the party and remained focused on achieving and sustaining true and lasting unity, peace and reconciliation across party ranks ahead of the national convention and the 2023 general elections.
The TAAG, in a statement issued in Abuja, said Governor Buni deserves commendation, though it is the prayers of every member of the APC to see the conduct of the much awaited national convention after the Ward, Local, and State Congresses, its a fact on ground that until the Caretaker Committee solve crisis in some states, the party cannot afford to go for a national convention with divided house.
The National Coordinator of the TAAG, Dr. Olusegun Adeleye in a statement titled “APC National Convention: The Need To Focus On Reconciliation and Party Unity” said while some members are pushing for the governing party to go for the national convention as planned, its important that the Governor Mai Mala Buni leadership to solve some of the crisis in the states before the convention, the focus remains achieving and sustaining the APC Caretaker Committee’s peace and reconciliation core mandate.
“It is important that the APC conducts its planned national convention to produce the party’s national leadership as a united house. Otherwise the main aim of constituting the CECPC following the dissolution of the former National Working Committee (NWC) will be defeated.
He said that the Governor Buni led Caretaker Committee has, in the course of carrying out its mandate, deployed a combination of true reconciliation, consultation and inclusiveness in achieving unity and cohesion to reposition the party adding that until the leadership solve the problems in some states that will pave way for the party to have a rancour-free national convention.
“As it is now, there are crisis in at least 14 state chapters of the party as at the last count, a fallout of the Congresses. The states include: Lagos, Bauchi, Imo, Zamfara, Enugu, Plateau, Kwara, Ogun, Osun, Oyo, Ekiti, Kano and Taraba. The processes demand that as a party guided by its rule, all pending issues have to be resolved to pave way for the national convention.
Re: Suspension Of APC National Convention
Re: Suspension of APC National Convention
By Daily Hint Reporter, Abuja
The general public is advised to completely disregard fake news on the reported suspension of the planned National Convention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) till June, as reported by some media outlets.
Dates for Party activities such as meetings, Primaries, Congresses, National Conventions are communicated through well-known official channels and not through ‘sources’.
The faceless authors and sponsors of fake news on APC activities, in this case the planned National Convention are simply bent on causing confusion and formenting crisis through misinformation. We should not enable them.
As a focus-driven, process-oriented political party, the APC Caretaker Committee under the leadership of Governor Mai Mala Buni will not be distracted by self-serving antics of these sponsors of fake news. The APC Caretaker Committee is already embarking on nationwide consultations with Party stakeholders to prepare the ground for a rancour-free National Convention. To this end, the sub-committee on budgeting and other substructures will be set up in due course.
Finally, the Party notes and appreciates the continued support of well-meaning members and leaders as the APC Caretaker Committee undertakes the immediate task of addressing contestations within the Party, litigations, fallouts of recently-conducted Congresses and generally reposition the Party ahead of the National Convention.
