Adamawa State Government has taken a swipe at the Minister of Information, Labaran Maku for saying that the alarm raised by Governor Murtala Nyako in his memo to the northern governors is ‘irresponsible and unfortunate’.
Ahmad Sajoh, the Director of Press, Adamawa Government House, in a statement on Wednesday, said “The likes of Labaran Maku represent the tragedy that has befalling Nigeria as a Nation.
“Their views on governance and manifest actions clearly prove the gutter level public policy has descended to in today’s Nigeria”.
Sajoh, contended that for anyone given the responsibility to manage information to advise that people should be silent means that under such leadership sycophants and sundry charlatans are the only citizens required.
He stated further, “An information Minister calling on people to keep quite in the face of wanton lies, serial deceptions and series of unanswered questions is undoubtedly a tragedy.
“We pity the likes of Labaran Maku who choose to feather their nests on the graves of their compatriots while calling on others to keep quite even when innocent blood is shed”.
The Media aide to Adamawa Governor however insisted that the opposition would not keep mum, “Until those who danced while we were mourning answer for their insensitivity.
“Labaran Maku and all the pretenders in the corridors of power will one day account for their deeds good or bad and that they should be reminded of both the inevitability of an end to their positions and the vanity of power. These facts will catch up with them sooner than later”.
On the abducted girls, he reminded Maku, “that anyone in this Government with a sense of shame should hide his face and not make useless and vain statements that mean far worthless and valueless as made by him.
“The lies they told on the matter and the deceptions they wove around it will one day haunt them to their graves. Hiring attack dogs to pour insults on people will not save them from the judgment of history and ultimately that of God Almighty.
“Let him be assured that our vigilante groups and hunters will surely rescue our daughters God willing.
“We shall not be silent like the Labaran Maku’s did when innocent citizens were gruesomely murdered in Kiyana Nasarawa State or scores of security personnel were gruesomely butchered by his kinsmen. “We shall not keep quite when a convoy of marauding murderers pass through military checkpoints and operate for many hours unchallenged at night during curfew hours in states that are supposed to be under emergency rule.
“We shall not keep quite because of threats of removal, arrest or prosecution. We shall not keep quite because of blackmail and insults from court jesters and sycophants.
“We shall not keep quite even in the face of open threats to our lives. We shall only keep quite if those who danced while we mourned provide answers to the questions we asked,” Sajoh said.
