•Dayyabu Ciroma Rejects Adamu Adamu’s Appointment, Expresses Loyalty To Bala Mohammed.

 

Hon. Dayyabu Ciroma, Chairman Bauchi State Drugs and Medical Consumables Agency, has declined Adamu Adamu’s Federal Government’s offer as member of the Governing Council of the Federal Polytechnic Shendam in Plateau State.

Ciroma, in a letter addressed to Adamu Adamu, Minister of Education, dated 12th April, 2021,said his dogged allegiance to Governor Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed of Bauchi State informed his decision to turn down the offer.

He said that he reserved his undiluted commitment to serve his immediate constituents in Bauchi State and to payback the trust and confidence Governor Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed reposed in him at the moment.

“Be that as it may, while I was indeed appointed to give my best to the development of my dear country Nigeria, I must not hesitate to categorically informed you of my decision to decline the said appointment,” part of the letter read.

Hon Ciroma further cited his ‘loyalty and dedication’ to the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, as another layer of reasons on which he opted to stay put of his appointment as council member of the Governing Board of the polytechnic.

“My loyalty and dedication to my dear political party, the People’s Democratic party, PDP, and indeed my personal support and unwavering loyalty to the Executive Governor of Bauchi State, Senator Bala Abdulkadir who have since found me capable and worthy of serving as Chairman of Bauchi State’s Drugs and Medical Consumable Management Agency,” he said.

Catholic Church Suspends Father Mbaka Over Row With Buhari

Mbaka was asked to proceed on suspension with effect from May 3 after being summoned by Callistus Valentine Onaga, the diocesan bishop.

The Catholic Diocese of Enugu has suspended Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka from church activities for one month as the controversial priest’s political escapades continue to overshadow his theological obligations on a scale that nurtures unending concerns amongst his senior clerics.

Mbaka was asked to proceed on suspension with effect from May 3 after being summoned by Callistus Valentine Onaga, the diocesan bishop.

Onaga called Mbaka in following his repeated clashes with President Muhammadu Buhari and warned that his conduct was smearing the church’s image, the largest of any Christian organisation worldwide, church officials familiar with the matter told The Gazette.

SaharaReporters had reported last Wednesday Mbaka’s criticism of the Muhammadu Buhari regime over its inaction on the widespread killings across the nation.

Speaking at the Adoration Ministry in Enugu, Mbaka said it is wrong for Buhari to maintain grave silence despite the incessant killings in the country.

He accused the government of being behind several killings across the country and tagging separatists groups as terrorists rather than focus on getting them good jobs.

The cleric also frowned on the activities of herders that destroy the farmland of people without any repercussion.

He said Buhari had failed Nigeria woefully and that he should resign now. Mbaka also called for the President’s impeachment.

Following his suspension, Mbaka returned to his ministry that lies north of the outskirts of Enugu city centre, where he subsequently incited his members against the bishop, sources said.

Mbaka’s followers claimed without evidence that he was kidnapped by Mr Onaga and handed over to the State Security Service. They subsequently marched on the premises of the bishop on Wednesday morning, looting and destroying assets therein.

The mob also descended on the Holy Ghost Cathedral, again looting and destroying items in the building. The members also went to town to allege that the SSS had arrested Mr Mbaka — generating widespread media reports despite lacking requisite corroboration.

A spokesman for the SSS denied taking Mr Mbaka into custody or coming in any contacts with him when reached by The Gazette, contrary to his followers’ rumours.

A spokesman for the diocese did not immediately return a request seeking comments. Mbaka’s line was switched off when dialled by The Gazette on Wednesday night.

Before falling out with Buhari recently, Mr Mbaka was an ardent supporter of the President. He endorsed his campaign in 2015 and claimed his blessings played a role in its success.

But as Buhari’s regime failed to tackle acute poverty and insecurity, Mr Mbaka said he was compelled to speak up and distance himself from his regime, describing it as evil and satanic and calling on the President himself to vacate office.

Church sources said Mbaka’s latest suspension was being viewed as significant for its undertone, but not the first time the fiery priest would face administrative action.

“We know people will link this to his confrontation with Buhari, but he was once demoted from a parish priest to a deputy under a parish priest,” a church official told TheGazette. “He had also been transferred from bigger parishes to smaller ones for his frequent infractions in the past.”

Still, church officials admitted Mbaka’s Adoration Ministry has been a cash cow for the Enugu Diocese, even though it was built by Mr Mbaka and not directly under its control.

“The real problem is the Diocese has been financially dependent on Mbaka, collecting his millions,” a source said, adding that some of the senior clerics themselves have also been in bed with politicians whom Mr Mbaka has long railed against.
