The senator representing the Adamawa Northern Senatorial District, Ishaku Abbo, has warned against infiltrating the elections of a new traditional ruler of the Bwatiye community which is famously called the "Hama Bachama".

Abbo who claimed through a post on his official Facebook profile that the Adamawa State Government Official has "determined to desecrate" the Bwatiye land has called on "Bachama Youths to stop anyone from desecrating" their shrine.

The Senator mentioned that "NO GOVERNOR has ever “directed” the KPANA to expect “GOVERNMENT OBSERVERS” on the day of the election."

"I have letters written by Governor Boni Haruna and Governor Murtala Nyako and they never asked the KPANA to allow government observers to be present at the “shafe” in Lamurde to “observe the election. He said
The Bachama’s know the consequences of desecrating the strict selection process of the Humon who is like a deity to the Bwatiye.  

I hope people of good conscience from this land will stand up to protect your culture from excessive political interference for the sake of your generation yet unborn. 

I call on Bachama Youths to stop anyone from desecrating your shrine. Save your land. 

I remain your voice.

I AM SIA
     I BELIEVE
           WE BELIEVE

He cited that

"Fintiri júst imposed a king on Gulak people, Infact out of the 16 kingmakers, 13 were with one candidate, 3 were with the other. Three (3) defeated 13."

Advising that,
The Bachama’s know the consequences of desecrating the strict selection process of the Humon who is like a deity to the Bwatiye.

My dear people of Adamawa State especially the People of Bwatiye nation.

I want you to read this letter dispassionately.

I will soon address you with more facts and recorded voices of government officials determined to desecrate your land. 

The Governor of Adamawa State planned to desecrate the “shafe” by invading it with government officials under the guise of sending “observers to witness and influence the election of the next Hamma Bachama. 

The SHAFE is the holy shrine of the Bwatiye nation where a new Hamma (Homun) is elected. 

The SHAFE is a “no go area” to anyone on the day of the election apart from the kingmakers. 


NO GOVERNOR has ever “directed” the KPANA to expect “GOVERNMENT OBSERVERS” on the day of the election.

I have letters written by Governor Boni Haruna and Governor Murtala Nyako and they never asked the KPANA to allow government observers to be present at the “shafe” in Lamurde to “observe the election.

For the records: 

Fintiri Just imposed a King on Sukur people. They are in court.

Fintiri Just imposed on the people of Mubi town a District head. Infact the Children of the late District head were stopped from the contest as the Governor sent the name of Marafa  his friend ALONE for confirmation. 

Fintiri júst imposed a king on Gulak people, Infact out of  the 16 kingmakers, 13 were with one candidate, 3 were with the other. Three (3) defeated 13. 


The Bachama’s know the consequences of desecrating the strict selection process of the Humon who is like a deity to the Bwatiye.  

I hope people of good conscience from this land will stand up to protect your culture from excessive political interference for the sake of your generation yet unborn. 

I call on Bachama Youths to stop anyone from desecrating your shrine. Save your land. 

I remain your voice.

I AM SIA
     I BELIEVE
           WE BELIEVE
