Ali Ali, Special Adviser on Media and Strategy to Governor Mohmmed Abubakar of Bauchi State has debunked in its entirety the claims of Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara which alleged N400 billion diversion by Governor Mohammed Abubakar-led government as baseless, outright falsehood and rantings of a sinking politician.
Ali said the Speaker’s irresponsible statement might have been triggered by early premonition of his electoral humiliation by the voters of Bauchi State.
Ali’s words: ”This is absolute balderdash especially coming from a supposedly enlightened leader.
The total receipt from FAAC in the preceding three years is no where close to that outrageous figure . It is regrettable that imminent electoral loss is making the Speaker lose his mind. Making such fantastic claims will not save him from the fury of voters in the coming polls.
For a lawyer, this ridiculous allegation underscores the quality of his thoughts and actions as number four citizens. His leadership is defined by primordial segmentation and sentiments. It is regrettable that his tunnel vision is impervious to the wider and more cosmopolitan polish of the office of the Speaker of House of Representatives.”
