- Allowing any sort of foul-mouthing, abuse, libel, and/or castigation against any faction â€” this is the business of reconciliation, reunion. critic of literature
â€œbased on the decision taken by All Progressives Congress (APC) stakeholders at all levels to consult widely for the partyâ€™s cohesion and unity of all members, the immediate past Governor of Adamawa State Senator Muhammadu Umaru Jibrilla Bindow was in Yola South Local Government to unite a perceived warring factions of the party.
â€œThe lingering crisis of the two factions Umaru vowed to foster peace for the benefit of APC in the state.
â€œThe meeting which brought together former Adamawa Speaker, Rt Hon Kabiru Mijinyawa, former commissioner of local government and chieftaincy affairs, Mustapha Barkindo Aliyu Mustapha, and many former aides and party critical stakeholders of the local government.
â€œOur reporter gathered that the former Governor insists on the two-party factions to tow the path of peace and unity which is the main essence of his visitâ€.
The online media continued that
â€œAlhaji Bala Usman, APC loyalist and former aide to Senator Jibrilla however granted an interview to this medium that a viral audio and some online media are peddling a different part of the meeting whereby dragging the name of Umaru over what he knows nothing aboutâ€.
Dragging the name of Umaru over what he knew nothing about? Was not Bindow as â€œmediatorâ€ at the venue of the akin to disintegration, one-sided reunion meeting?
The online media continued that
â€œUsman said viral making story on the social media that Suleiman Adamu, APC caretaker committee Chairman of Yola South wishing President Muhammadu Buhari dead with Coronavirus and report are dragging the name of Senator Jibrilla is total wickedness because he is never part of whatever bad they discussed.
â€œI want people to listen to that audio very well, there was no anywhere Bindowâ€™s voice was been recorded or heard of him saying anything. This is just a premeditated plan to smear his name for blackmail and mischievous reasonsâ€.
What a statement of indictment!
â€˜There was no anywhere Bindowâ€™s voice was been recorded or heard of him saying anythingâ€™, keeping mute, as a mediator, suggests an endorsement of whatever statement as part of resolutions reached, with audio recorder playing the secretary to the meeting.
The online media continued, quoting Bindowâ€™s aide, Bala as saying,
â€œMay I however said that they have all failed, those wishing and aiming him bad over what he knows nothing about they have indeed failed.
â€œI want to say that, my Principal cannot support evil to triumph over good, or anybody raining causes on President Muhammadu Buhari. This is not him, and he cant never be part of it. He was there to mend fences of our dear party, which for the past two weeks he has been meeting with different party stakeholders to bring total unity for the party to succeed in the coming 2023 General elections.â€
The online media continued,
â€œBala reiterated that the audio and the reports have exonerated Senator Umaru as there was not anywhere he has been quoted saying anything bad against the Buhari who he always and respectfully calling him â€œMy Fatherâ€. Dragging his name to the purported report is unjustifiable, itâ€™s aimed at blackmailing him and tarnishing his good name in the eyes of the President.
â€œI want to categorically say that Bindow is never in any way associating himself with that report and we demand a retract of his name and unreserved apology.â€ Bala added
â€œWhether or not the mediator in Bindow tried to correct the impression that not only him as a governor then, the federal government has equally brought and is still bringing development to Adamawa state,â€ the literary critic would observe.
