For Stating The Fact, School Principal Suspended Over Kebbi Deputy Governor’s Alleged Forged Certificates Issue 

 

The offence of Zayyanu Muhammad Umar is because he stayed on the path of truth in the  refusal to attest to the alleged  forgery of certificates by the deputy governor of Kebbi State,Senator Umar Abubakar.

 

 

 

 

 

As of last week, Zayyanu Muhammad Umar was placed under tremendous pressure by the Permanent Secretary to produce attestation for the Deputy Governor Umar Abubakar.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But Zayyanu Muhammad Umar’s faithfulness to the oath of service overwhelmed him and he stayed on the path of truth.

 

 

 

 

 

According to the story, Kebbi State Deputy Governor, Senator Umar Abubakar, had writing  a letter to the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Basic Education and Secondary Education in Sokoto, Mr Lawal Saddiq Sanusi, applying for the certified true copy of his testimonial.’

 

 

 

 

 

In the letter, he alleged that he was a student of Sultan Abubakar College between 1974 and 1979 with the admission number 958. He requested for the certified true copy of the testimonial and secondly, for a letter of attachment and confirmation that the testimonial bearing Umaru Abubakar belongs to him.

 

However and despite an alleged threats and financial inducements,  the Principal of the school, Zayyanu Muhammad Umar, refused to play ball saying he has no such official record with the school.

In the process, the   principal of the school was put under intense fire by the Permanent Secretary to produce attestation for the Deputy Governor.

 

In a response titled: Re-Application for Certified True Copy of Testimonial and a Letter of Attestation for Umaru Abubakar, Zayyanu Muhammad Umar wrote:

“The name Umaru Abubakar is not on the list of students who graduated and were issued testimonials in 1979.

 

Neither the Examinations Records nor any of the school records  listed the name of  Umaru Abubakar as having sat for Teachers Grade ll examinations in 1982, or to be among students who were issued testimonials in 1982 as indicated in the testimonial attached by Senator Umaru Abubakar Argungu.

 

The attached copy of the testimonial of Umaru Abubakar does not carry the  name of the issuing officer, which is not the tradition of the school,” the  response to the request stated.

 

However, credible information reveals that the Kebbi State Deputy Governor was allegedly dismissed from the Sultan Abubakar College Sokoto which was then a Teachers Training College during a mock examination alongside 15 others.

 

To punish Zayyanu Muhammad Umar, an unsigned  query, dated May 30, 2023, issued  to the Principal by Abdulsamad Hamzat Isa, Acting Director, Administration,  on behalf of Sokoto State  Honourable Commissioner of Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education.

 

In the  unsigned query,  seen  by this medium on Tuesday,  Zayyanu Muhammad Umar was falsely  accused of unsatisfactory performance on his job and in his capacity as a school Principal.

 

For want of any genuine offence, Zayyanu Muhammad Umar was accused of “Unilaterally disclosing official information without authorization. These unruly and immoral behaviors of yours constitute an act of misconduct punishable under PSR NO 030402,” the letter stated without disclosing the “Official information” Zayyanu Muhammad Umar let out to the public.

 

The letter stated further  that Zayyanu Muhammad Umar “Unilaterally, without the consent of the Ministry, travelled to Abuja and by doing so, you have absented yourself from duty without leave.”

Consequently, Zayyanu Muhammad Umar has been asked to “Appear before a committee to investigate the matter on Wednesday, May 31 by 12:00pm at the Ministry Headquarters.

 

The letter added that  “ A sole Administrator  in person of  AbdulRahman Jaafaru, Acting Director, Basic,  has been appointed to oversee the activities of the school pending the outcome of the investigation,” the suspended letter stated.

Engage in Active Political Engineering, Not Planned Protest Says Buratai To The Youths

Buratai Lauds Allen Onyema On Air Peace's Inaugural Flight to London, Calls for Support

cautioned that a “10 day of rage” can not be peaceful. Such a protest will be unconstitutional. The word rage connotes violence.

 

 

The former Chief of Army Staff and former Nigerian Ambassador to the Republic of Benin retired Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai has advised Nigerian youths against the proposed nationwide protest by not allowing themselves to be used as willing tools by do-or-die partisan individuals or groups who want to stir up trouble in the country.

 

 

Buratai advised them to be good students of history and take lessons from the 2020 EndSars protest, which did not yield the desired benefit. According to him, what they did was to allow hoodlums to hijack the protest, and the result was total mayhem against innocent individuals, public, and private properties.

 

Not undermining their fundamental human rights, he cautioned that peaceful protest is guaranteed in our constitution, but in most cases, such protests end up being violent. The indicators are everywhere.

 

According to him, the planners of the protest have exposed their hidden and evil plan by christening the protest as “10 days of rage.” This means that the protest was never intended to be peaceful. A 10 day of rage can not be peaceful. The word rage connotes violence.

 

He challenged the planners of the protest to embrace the tenets of political engineering instead. According to him, youths constitute a large percentage of our voting and working population. Thus, they should be actively involved in the democratic process to bring about the needed change if need be.

 

“Youths can actively participate in politics, and their voices can be heard, their ideas and their actions can bring about the needed transformation in the country”

 

 

“Let Nigerians give the government the benefit of the doubt as President Tinubu listens to, and reacts to the challenges facing the country”, he concluded.

 

 

It would be recalled that the United Nations’ Department of Safety and Security has also issued a warning that the planned protests in Nigeria could be hijacked by groups with ulterior motives.

 

Also, President Tinubu has pleaded with the aggrieved Nigerians, especially the youths who are planning a national protest over the high cost of leaving to shelve the planned action. The President also assured those behind the planned national protest that he has heard their grievances and is working seriously to ensure that all their concerns are addressed.

 

According to reports, various Nigerian groups are planning a nationwide protest from August 1 to 10, dubbed “10 days of rage,” to address the country’s soaring cost of living and economic hardship.
