Solomon Kumangar, Director-General, Media and Communications to Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri of Adamawa state
By Fred Oyono
When media aides to the chief executives are professionally engaged in showcasing activities of their principals for ovation, encomiums and any occasion that calls for commendation, Solomon the drunk Kumangar, Director-General, Media and Communications to Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri of Adamawa state is busy bringing down his Principal as the liquor he is so much addicted to can get to play the demeaning culture.
His actions and utterances as expressed, expose his weaknesses, inefficiency and ineffectiveness in the media aid job. Little wonder a press secretary is appointed to take over the assignment he lacks the capacity to carry out.
Kumangar fails to realise that whatever he says as a media aid, implies that it is from his principal or it is his principal that is saying it.
It is expected of the media aide to respond to any attack on the principal deemed constructive with issue based rather than undiplomatic, drunk, ghetto like foul language in use for character assassination.
This Kumangar thinks, is much worthy and that is why he considers only the funniest, unethical new news media called the Finder as a most worthy medium to rather unconsciously sabotage his principal, exposing him to public ridicule and unnecessary attack in the name of fighting with Sen. Ishaku Abbo.
Recall that the Finder news used to attack governor Fintiri's activities, which it considered as fresh lies instead of fresh air and addressed Kumangar as the most unqualified media aid.
When was the treaty entered between Kumangar and the Finder for the change in the narratives from worse to good, from the unqualified media aid to worthy media maker? The funniest Finder makes caricature of their romanticised farce.
Previously, Adamawa state government, or the media aids to the governor, were commended for ignoring the finder's stupidity as much as it is ignored by sensible media conscious representatives, the likes of Sen. Aishatu Dahiru Binani and Sen. Ishaku Abbo, among others.
Does it mean that Fintiri led government, in the eyes of Kumangar, honours only the media outfit, however unethical and unconstructive that is established to intimidate, haras and blackmail gullible men in governance?
How uncritical, if credible can Adamawa governor be, to start challenging perceived opponents for 2023 election when he still has a long way to go, as Kumangar and the Finder news have jointly portrayed governor Fintiri to be attacking Sen. Abbo. Is it not being immature?
"Adamawa Guber 2023: "save the money you acquired from the senate to feed your numerous wives and concubines than embarking in an unrealistic ambition; Fintiri's aide Kummanger to Ishaku Abbo," the Finder published and sent to some few SMS then lied to Kumangar for monthly allowance
Look at even the Kumangar's wrong spelling. However, the media aide is too drunk to notice the unforgivable error.
Why the Finder not other online, mainstream or broadcast media, not even the public media? Can Kumangar give this answer to bail other media aides to and even governor Fintiri himself?
