The Senator Representing Adamawa Central at the National Assembly, Hajiya Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed (Binani) was reportedly booed on Saturday by angry Youths in the state.
The youths who were shouting in Hausa; ” Ba ma yinki, ba ma sonki, musha while da ke Baki Yi mana ko Mai ba. Baza muyi ki ba.” Meaning: “we don’t want you again and we are not going to do politics with you again, you have failed us, We suffered for you and can’t think of helping us.” They booed.
The unfortunate incident happened at the premises of All Progressives Congress (APC) secretariat where she led a delegation of Adamawa APC National Assembly caucus to address the leadership of the party for unity and a way forward for the party in the state.
The meeting was said to be having a political undertone of the booing Senator who is allegedly aspiring to be the next Governor of the state.
Sources pleaded for concealed identity said the Senator and other three lawmakers of the party are also planning to distance from the first Unity meeting of the party held last week in Abuja organised by former SGF, Engr Babachir David Lawal.
According to the sources, the NASS caucus lamented that the meeting held last week in Abuja was mere a gathering crowd of those who betrayed the party and anti-party activities that led to the failure of the party in the state.
The sources further said that their loyalty and their mission was not in any way being backed by grassroots politicians.
“They guys came with an intimidating convoy of Jeeps without any of their grassroot politicians and supporters to show support for their cause.
” I didn’t see any lawmaker of APC in their midst despite about eleven lawmakers the party is having in the state Assembly, no any former local government Chairman or councillor escorting them to the party secretariat to show a sign that they are really after the unity of the party as she said in her speech to the leadership of the party under Alhaji Bilal Chairmanship.
“As you can see already a video is trending in the social media that the woman is no longer needed, those youths you saw are actually saying the minds of so many people in the state that her time is up, and she should not waste time in coming around to contest for any seat.
” Sir I must confess that people like Senator Ahmed Barata will not let her be, but will be giving her wrong counsel in order to extortion money from her because he has been relegated at the backdrop with the title of former politician he wouldn’t want to accept the reality that he has been retired from active politics.” He said
A supporter of the Senator, Alhaji Mauludu Usman when contacted said that those youths “are miscreants hired by political enemies of Binani and enemies of the party in the state to stall down the possible unity of the party”.
He lamented that if things should go this way peace and unity in the party will be a mere mirage.
“Tell me what is her crime in her efforts to bring the party’s glory back in the state? Let me tell Distinguished Senator Binani is not deter a bit, she is focused and well balanced to represent well the people of her zone.
” I stand bold to say and be a challenge that, no Senator in the history of Adamawa state put together has done what this woman is doing, go and find out the records are there for you to judge by yourself.” He said
