Dogara didn’t sympathize with Emirs of Bauchi, Dass for fear of the unknown

Associates of former Speaker, House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara under the umbrella of ‘Rt. Hon Yakubu Dogara Solidarity Vanguard’ have reacted to the suspension of his traditional title, Jakadan Bauchi, saying that Dogara did not sympathize with the Emirs of Bauchi and Dass for fear of the unknown.
The suspension had followed an alleged involvement in an attack on the Emirs of Bauchi and Dass on the occasion of Baba Peter Gonto’s memorial celebration in Bogoro LGA, Bauchi State.
Bauchi emirate also accused Dogara of ‘not showing concern by not sympathizing nor showed any sign of remorse towards what happened to the affected Royal fathers’.
Leader of the group, Garba Othman Kirfi told newsmen in Bauchi on Tuesday that attack was stage-managed and soiled with political coloration.
“It is worthy of note that Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara is not a type that exhibit contemptuous disposition to our revered traditional institutions because he severally led various missions of re-branding them in order to correspond with their originality.
“Never for once he has ever looked down upon the foundation of his mainstay. Being a product of the Royal family, he always falls back to it for institutional support and shelter.
“His decision on the ill fated scenario was very explicit. He is always willing to come down home to sympathize with the effected institutions on what has happened but the fear of the unknown often made him have a second thought on the visit.
“You may agree with me that the whole scenario was stage managed and soiled with political coloration. Based on that, his coming may be seized by mischief makers to disrupt the atmosphere as they did before now,” he said.
He further alleged that the crisis that engulfed the botched Baba Peter Gonto 21st anniversary was the work of mischief makers.
“I therefore wish to call on all mischief makers who find joy in manipulating crisis for political gains, and the huge misinformed Indigenes of the state to understand that Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara Is their son who is committed to the entrenchment of true democracy for the development of the State and even beyond.
“They should sheath their sword and wait for the turn of events. As it is known to everyone, he is peace loving Indigene of the State and has people at heart. I am sure, he won’t disappoint the good people of the State. He is determined and focused to address various challenging situations with decorum and adapt strategies for enduring peace,” he added.
