Kano Emirship: *Stop maligning President Tinubu’s office, group tells Kwankwaso, NNPP

Kano Emirship: *Stop maligning President Tinubu’s office, group tells Kwankwaso, NNPP*

 

The Progressive Front of Nigeria (ProFN) has condemned the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) and its leadership for making unfounded attacks on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his office.

 

In a press statement, ProFN’s National President, Alhaji Musa Mohammed, expressed shock at the “catastrophic shallowness” of the NNPP leadership, particularly in Kano State, where the party’s chairman, Hashim Dungurawa, made “logically challenged” statements aimed at tarnishing President Tinubu’s reputation.

 

ProFN accused the NNPP of promoting ethnic tensions and misinformation, and demanded an immediate retraction of the offensive statements with unreserved apologies to Nigerians and President Tinubu.

 

The group warned the party to stop holding others responsible for its poor showing at the last general elections and its subsequent lacklustre outing in Kano State.

 

Full Text of the Press Statement:

 

The Progressive Front of Nigeria (ProFN) is shocked to discover the catastrophic shallowness that permeates the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) leadership, as amply demonstrated by the Kano State Chapter of the party, its most viable entity. Our shock was triggered by the briefing held by the Kano State NNPP Chairman, Hashim Dungurawa, who tragically stood logic on its head, erasing all doubts about the party’s questionable intellectual capacity and exposing the unenlightened reasoning that set the state on a disastrous course.

 

Shockingly, someone as highly placed as Dungurawa can descend into the sewers to tarnish the good standing of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his party, the All Progressive Congress (APC), just to score cheap points in the emirship conundrum created by the NNPP. After suffering legal defeats and court rulings ordering it to do the right thing, Dungurawa alleges that President Tinubu is destabilizing Kano State by trying to impose the 15th Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero, on the Emirate due to shared ethnic affiliations.

 

If the NNPP Kano State Chapter Chairman was discerning, he would realize that his utterances risk inflaming the state and pitching ethnic nationalities against each other based on lies and misinformation. We wonder when he concluded that the Kano Emirate is no longer patriarchal, making such half-brained claims. Emir Bayero is a bona fide Kano son who ascended to the throne through his paternal lineage, not his mother’s. The Nigerian Army, Police, and Department of State Services (DSS) upheld the rule of law in the ongoing matter in Kano State, contrary to NNPP’s accusations.

 

NNPP must stop holding others responsible for its poor showing at the 2023 general elections and its subsequent lacklustre outing in Kano state, the only state it controls. We are shocked that a full-grown adult can peddle such ingrained ignorance, reminding us that Dungurawa is a puppet to Kano State Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, controlled by the party’s owner, Mohammed Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso.

 

We find it pertinent to intervene now that Yusuf and Kwankwaso have expanded their theatre of war beyond Kano State to the President of Nigeria, calling him unprintable names for standing up to protect the Constitution consistent with his oath of office. This is a new low even for NNPP thugs. Dungurawa is already using the 2027 General Elections as blackmail to threaten President Tinubu, signposting the lack of focus in the government of Kano, where Governor Yusuf and his party have dwelt on inanities instead of concentrating on governance.

 

It is puzzling that the same person who was abusing and warning the President ended up appealing to him to help bring an end to the Kano Emirate debacle created by the NNPP, Governor Yusuf, and Kwankwaso. In our honest view, these people must tender certificates of mental fitness before Nigerians take them seriously again. ProFN demands an immediate retraction of these offensive utterances by the NNPP, Dungurawa, Governor Yusuf, and Kwankwaso, with unreserved apologies to Nigerians and President Tinubu for heating the polity and maligning the Office and person of the President.

Lagos Lawmakers Invite Attorney-General Over Supreme Court Judgement On LGs

 

commend Police for successful operation against kidnappers

– applaud First Lady Remi Tinubu for encouraging gardens

 

 

The Lagos State House of Assembly has invited the Attorney-General of the State, Mr. Lawal Pedro, to appear before it to explain the Supreme Court judgement on local governments in the country.

 

Lagos Lawmakers Invite Attorney-General Over Supreme Court Judgement On LGs

The lawmakers said there was a need for better understanding of the decision of the apex court in relation to some provisions in the Constitution of the country.

A seven-man panel of the Supreme Court had declared on Thursday that the 774 local government councils in the country should receive their funds directly from the Federal Government as well as manage such funds themselves being a tier of government.

The court further declared that allocations to local government councils run by caretaker committees were illegal.

Ruling after a voice vote by lawmakers at plenary on Thursday, the Speaker of the Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, ruled: “There is a need for us to seek clarification and understanding of this judgement. It will be good to invite the Attorney-General to brief us and give his understanding so that we do not run foul of the judgement.”

Meanwhile, the Lagos State House of Assembly has resolved to write a letter of commendation to the Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, over the successful operation by men of the force that led to the elimination of nine kidnappers in the state recently.

A letter of commendation is also to be sent to the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Adegoke Mustapha Fayoade, for the efforts of the policemen which led to the fruitful operation.

Speaker Mudashiru Obasa, who presided over the plenary, said the police and men of the force who took part in the operation needed to be commended.

Dr. Obasa agreed with members of the House that letters be sent to Egbetokun and Fayoade further charging them not to relent in keeping the State safe for residents.

He stressed the need for stakeholders to fast-track considerations for the creation of state police to support the federal police system.

The Majority Leader of the House, Hon. Noheem Adams, had earlier recalled how the police launched the operation against some kidnappers in the Ladipo area of the state and eliminated nine of them.

According to him, there has been calm in the area since the operation was carried out.

Noheem added that the Ikorodu area of the state which hitherto had issues of kidnapping now enjoys relative peace.

In another development, the House of Assembly has applauded the First Lady of Nigeria, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, for seeking to encourage subsistence agriculture.

The Speaker said it was a beautiful idea to encourage Nigerians to have gardens in their houses arguing that this would help to create food sufficiency.

He recalled that schools had farms in the past adding that current situations call for a return to that period.
