The Adamawa Government has refuted a report published in Guardian Newspaper of Saturday September 2nd 2017, painting a false picture that the Adamawa State Governor, Senator Muhammed Umaru Jibrilla Bindow abandoned the usual Eid-El-Kabir Sallah homage and left APC officials stranded at the Government House in Yola.
The report was mischievous carried to falsely portray that Governor Bindow shunned people coming for the routine EID-EL Kabir Sallah homage at the Government House.
In a Press statement issued by Special Assistant to the Governor on Media Affairs, Mr Martins Dickson revealed that the information contained in the report is not correct and it is misleading in its entirety.
According to him the Government through the commissioner for information Ahmed Sajoh had 2 days ago issued a press statement on why the Governor cancelled this year’s rigorous Sallah homage, and that is to allow all Muslims concentrate on the spiritual purpose of Sallah by having time to continue with prayers with their friends and families for the country’s leaders especially President Muhammadu Buhari, unity of the Nation and lasting peace.
“There was no such visit by APC chieftains to the Government house as quoted in the report, as every stakeholder in the state is aware of the cancellation which was widely publicized in the media and the Governor’s position regarding maximizing the period of this Sallah to have spiritual gains for the benefit of the state and the nation at large.”
He reiterated that one of the most reason of the cancellation of the homage is to depicts the essence of having sober reflection and high spiritual sensitivity in prayer regarding the multifaceted challenges of Nigeria’s unity, peace and economic growth, hence the need to do the unusual by having more time in prayer and sacrifices for the entire leadership of the country.
“It is unfortunate that mischievous persons will thwart this good gesture of the Governor and try to selfishly color it for their interest.”
“Senator Muhammed Umaru Jibrilla remains sensitive to the happenings in Adamawa state and the Nation at large and will always lead the good people of Adamawa state who are strong people of faith to always seek divine intervention in all circumstances and in some cases even making extra sacrifices as in this case.”
