By their im­peach­ment threat….. Sen. Su­laiman Nazif Ga­mawa, the po­lit­i­cal “abiku”

Daily Trust - - OPINION -

Sen­a­tors dared Nige­ri­ans to a full blown war, now they proved to us that they are dead­lier than all the vices con­fronting the na­tion. They should also know that he who pelts one with peb­bles is def­i­nitely ask­ing for rocks in re­turn. A word is enough for the wise.

The word “Abiku” is Yoruba which refers to a child who must die and re­peat­edly be re­born again and again. It means that he gets born, and when the family thinks that he is there to stay, he then dies. He keeps tor­ment­ing his par­ents while they feed him and he is ben­e­fit­ing from them. This is ex­actly what Se­na­tor Nazif is to the peo­ple of his sen­a­to­rial district. As one of the thou­sands from Bauchi north sen­a­to­rial district who gave our man­date to him sev­eral times but after fail­ing us, I can as­sert that Se­na­tor Nazif is a po­lit­i­cal Abiku to us. We elected him a mem­ber House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives, and later a Se­na­tor in 2007 on the Ac­tion Congress (AC) plat­form, after he de­camped from the PDP. But un­for­tu­nately, he didn’t de­liver most of the prom­ises he made to us. In fact, I am chal­leng­ing any­body who can point out a sin­gle project brought to us by him.
