Nigeria: New Deputy Governor of Kaduna, Bajoja Is a Betrayer - Southern Kaduna

Concerned Southern Kaduna Professionals have described as a 'betrayer', the new Kaduna State Deputy Governor, Mr. Nuhu Bajoga, who is giving up his chairmanship of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state for the deputy governor's slot, asserting that he has made Southern Kaduna to forfeit its control of the PDP machinery.

The group made the remark in a statement signed by Dr. John Danfulani and Pedon K. Yates, following a SaharaReporters story on Bajoga becoming the next deputy governor.

"Despite the unanimous decision reached by all concerned people of Southern Kaduna extraction against his nomination, the Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party in Kaduna State Ambassador Nuhu Bajoga, who hails from the area went ahead and extricated himself by accepting his nomination as the next Deputy Governor of Kaduna State even with clear signs that it was done to perpetually enslave the people of Southern Kaduna politically, socially and other wise," the group said.

They further expressed the view that the insistence by Vice President Namadi Sambo and Governor Alhaji Mukhtar Ramalan Yero that Bajoga be made Deputy Governor demonstrates that there are machinations and plots against the people of Southern Kaduna who since 1998 have been the ostrich laying golden eggs for the PDP in the history of elections held in Nigeria.

"By accepting his nomination and subsequently swearing in, Ambassador Bajoga has also revealed himself as a Judas who evidently is an unprincipled and unworthy sibling of Southern Kaduna, and indeed betrayer of the Southern Kaduna struggle. What is more painful and amazing is, at his age and exposure he had allowed his quest for political power to mortgage future of present and upcoming generations of Southern Kaduna, as Concerned Southern Kaduna Professionals consisting of those in the academia, private and public sector, media and other endeavours we will not relent in placing him in the right place he deserved in history of Southern Kaduna, the group warned.

Warning Bajoga that he has betrayed late Governor Yakowa in death and in trust, the group said that as people of God, they believe that the Law of Nature and of Karma will certainly catch up with him some day for betraying their collective cause and affirming more subjugation, domination and oppression of Southern Kaduna people.

They called on him to search his conscious and conviction, and asserted he will further find he has begun a journey into the wilderness of slavery, oppression, domination and political emasculation.

"And he will have no rest nor peace as power is transient, and flexible and largely dotted with evil," the group said. "As he was made to believe he is bride, tomorrow it may turn out to be bitter."

Turning to Vice President Sambo and Governor Yero, they noted that while they may have captured Kaduna politics, they should search their conscience, and that they will realize that there is more harm to power grab on the alter of injustice, oppression, domination and politics of exclusion.

"We will continue with the struggle for fairness, peace and justice and we are assuring them that the days of their PDP have finally come to an end in Southern Kaduna," they concluded.
