A steadfast member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) led administration in Bauchi, Hon. Sharubutu Haruna has dispelled the insinuation that social media handlers and Radio propagators popularly known as ‘Yan Kare Muradu’ who were supportive of the state government’s policies and programmes have their services not being appreciated by the powers that be.
According to him, Governor Bala Mohammed has been economically, politically and socially supportive to all their activities, saying the present Bauchi state government has since its inception in 2019 to date been carrying them all along in its programmes and activities.
PDP loyalist Haruna, aka ‘Allon Karfe’ who is a chairman of ‘Yan Kare Muradun Gwamnan Bauchi’ was reacting to an APC supporter whom, he declined to mention name, that the Radio Propagator and social media captains under the present administration in Bauchi have not been enjoying the fruits of their services to the PDP-led government in the state.
“We have been enjoying all the economic empowerment packages of the state government, including the Kaura Economic Empowerment Programme (KEEP), we are being supported with monthly monetary allowances. We were given cars, Hajj seats, and other palliatives especially on special occasions such as Sallah celebrations under the supervision of Comrade Mukhtar Gidado, the immediate past media aide to Governor Bala”, Allon Karfe said.
Hon. Sharubutu Haruna, reacting to the APC member while fielding press questions in Bauchi Saturday, queried as to why the opposition member is keen in knowing what are transpiring between the Kauran Bauchi-led government and defenders of it’s policies, programmes or activities.
He hinged the vituperation of the APC member to his disguising effort or clandestine way of getting himself into the PDP, stressing that the party will not accept such a disgruntled element into it’s fold.
The APC member, said the Allon Karfe, despite of an opposition party, has claimed to be loyal to Governor Bala Mohammed whose policies and programmes, he argued, are being tailored to meet the needs and aspirations of the common man.
Haruna reiterated the
group’s continued loyalty, support and commitment to the cause of Governor Bala Mohammed’s PDP-led administration, saying they would continue to remain tall in the party activities no matter the image denting by the APC surrogates.
He also described immediate past commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon. Abdulrazaq Nuhu Zaki and Special Adviser to the Governor of Media and Publicity, Mukhtar Gidado Mohammed respectively as the best ever lieutenants of Governor Bala Mohammed whom he should not joke with their staging back into the Bauchi PDP government services for a second term in office.
