Marwa con­demns Nyako’s ut­ter­ances

Daily Trust - - NEWS -

Adamawa State Gover­nor Mur­tala Nyako has con­sti­tuted him­self into a self-ap­pointed over-heater of the Nige­rian polity and the bad boy of Nige­rian pol­i­tics with his un­guarded ut­ter­ances over the sources of in­se­cu­rity in the coun­try, for­mer La­gos State Mil­i­tary Ad­min­is­tra­tor Bri­gadier- Gen­eral Mo­hamed Buba Marwa (rtd) said in Yola yes­ter­day. He urged Nyako to shut up be­cause he is mis­lead­ing the younger gen­er­a­tions with his reck­less state­ments.

Speak­ing to re­porters at his res­i­dence in Yola, Marwa said since he is also a re­tired se­nior mil­i­tary of­fi­cer and a na­tive of the same Adamawa State, he felt duty bound to re­spond to the base­less as­ser­tions made by Nyako in which he went to Amer­ica and dis­par­aged his coun­try and its lead­er­ship. Marwa even though he has al­ways shied away from crit­i­cis­ing Nyako be­cause he was his mil­i­tary su­pe­rior, he felt duty bound to speak up be­fore the gover­nor’s ut­ter­ances wreck the coun­try.

He con­demned the let­ter that Nyako re­cently wrote to his fel­low North­ern Gov­er­nors in which he al­leged that Pres­i­dent Good­luck Jonathan was be­hind the Boko Haram in­sur­gency be­dev­il­ing the North East and that the pres­i­dent is wag­ing a geno­ci­dal war against North­ern­ers. He said Nyako failed to ad­duce any ev­i­dence to sub­stan­ti­ate his grave al­le­ga­tions and won­dered how such a se­nior of­fi­cial could make such al­le­ga­tions with­out proof. Nyako’s ut­ter­ances in Amer­ica, Marwa, also have the ten­dency to scare away for­eign in­vestors from the coun­try since no in­vestor wants to in­vest in a cli­mate of fear and in­se­cu­rity.

Gen­eral Marwa, a for­mer CPC gov­er­nor­ship can­di­date in Adamawa State who re­cently re­turned to PDP, said Nyako’s let­ter did not rep­re­sent the views of the people of Adamawa State but were fig­ments of his own imag­i­na­tion.
