Be­ware of syco­phants - Rubochi Chief tells Kuje chair­man

Daily Trust - - ASO CHRONICLE - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

The chief of Rubochi in Kuje Area Coun­cil, Al­haji Mo­hammed Ibrahim Pada, has ad­vised the chair­man of the coun­cil, Al­haji Ab­dul­lahi D. Gal­adima, to be­ware of syco­phants.

Pada, who gave the ad­vice when the coun­cil chair­man paid him a visit at his palace, week­end, said that syco­phants would cause dis­af­fec­tion be­tween him and the masses that voted him into of­fice.

He called on the chair­man em­brace ev­ery­body, ir­re­spec­tive of eth­nic, re­li­gious and po­lit­i­cal dif­fer­ences, say­ing that he should see his po­si­tion as pre­des­tined and play role of a leader to all.

“That was what af­fected the past PDP ad­min­is­tra­tion, where some peo­ple will go to the chair­man to tell him all sorts of lies, just to so­licit for ei­ther fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance or oth­er­wise. I am ad­vis­ing you to be wary of such syco­phants,” he said.

The tra­di­tional ruler urged the chair­man to ad­dress the peren­nial water prob­lem fac­ing the com­mu­nity.

Ear­lier, the chair­man of the coun­cil said that he pri­ori­tised pro­vi­sion of ru­ral in­fra­struc­ture that would have direct bear­ing on the lives of the en­tire peo­ple of the coun­cil.

“I am aware of the water prob­lem fac­ing my peo­ple here in Rubochi, just like other com­mu­ni­ties, which, by the grace of God, we are go­ing to tackle head­long as soon as fi­nan­cial sit­u­a­tion of the coun­cil im­proves,” he said.
