MONARCHY IN MAIHA: Chieftaincy Affairs, Mubi Emirate Council’s Letter In Contempt Of Court Order – Group
group in Jalingo-Maiha who tried to protect the Central Mosque from being desecrated on a Friday by a seeming fetish impostor with an army of armed seeming diabolical thugs as was reported, Friday cried fault against a letter circulating via social media, said to be traced from the Mubi Emirate Council on Thursday December 5, 2019.
The letter dated 4th December 2019, which redirected Wakili Usman Shehu known as Idi to keep acting as a district head of Jalingo-Maiha pending the determination of the court of appeal, has nullified the earlier letter dated 25th November, 2019, which not only forbade Idi from parading himself as District Head, has equally banished him from Maiha, he was trying to cause dissention for anarchy that he was challenged before the law against, pending the state government investigation on the legitimacy or otherwise of the selection process that ushered the impostor- by court order- into the tussle to the stool.
The group queried the Ministry of local government and chieftaincy affairs and the Mubi Emirate Council, for being in romance with the contempt of court order- without stay of execution- of July 13, 2018 that restrained Idi from parading himself as any district head and ordered the governor of Adamawa State to approve the appointment of Mahmud Abubakar Suleiman as the legitimate District Head of Jalingo-Maiha.
The court order was not honoured by the former governor Bindow of Adamawa State. When briefed, just after the swearing-in, governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, frowning at the injustice and the desecration of due process, directed that court order must be honoured.
“Since a letter was earlier served restraining Wakili Usman Shehu Idi from parading himself as District Head, a letter also ought to be served approving Mahmud Abubakar Suleiman as the District Head of Jalingo-Maiha, irrespective of the pending case before the appeal court, since the High Court ruling does not suggest stay of execution.
Confusion occasioned by incompetency or out of desperation in complecency to conspiracy:
1. The first letter from the Mubi Emirate Council, dated November 21, 2019, which warned Idi against parading himself as District Head has indicated that “pending the outcome of state government investigation on the process of your selection.” The letter was a collective resolution of the Mubi Emirate Council that sat on November 13, 2019, acting on the letter from the Adamawa state ministry of local government and chieftaincy affairs, dated June 17, 2919: About 5 months later.
2. The second letter from the Mubi Emirate Council of 4th December, 2019 informing idi, against court order and the security reports, to continue acting as district head “pending the determination of the appeal court,” which the letter said “supercedes the earlier letter of your suspension from office,” was also acting on the letter from the Adamawa state ministry of local government and chieftaincy affairs dated November 21, 2019: just less than 10 days later, issued without the Mubi Emirate Council having have to sit on the matter. What desperation!
3. Notice the contradiction: First letter; Idi suspended, “pending the outcome of state government investigation on the process of your selection.” The second letter; Idi reinstated, “pending the determination of the appeal court.”
The question is, has the state government been through with their investigation and passed over to the appeal court in form of memoranda to be considered?
“We learned that the Adamawa state ministry of local government and chieftaincy affairs and the Mubi Emirate Council will not want to have a vacant stool in Jalingo-Maiha District, preparatory to the state Qur’anic recitation competition scheduled to hold in Jalingo-Maiha. If that’s the case, they should simply and honourably respect court order by approving Mahmud Abubakar Suleiman to fill the deliberately created vacant stool.
“Besides, how can a vandal with his conspiring fetish thugs who desecrated a Central Mosque on a Friday, who is banished from the town to make peace, be invited to chair Qur’anic recitation compensation in Jalingo-Maiha as district head?
“Are the organisers of the competition working on and for peace? Are they engaged in the task to have the blessing of Allah SWT? Or simply put, the conspirators for anarchy, in romance with the contempt of court order, are taking advantage of the Qur’anic recitation competition, as their oracle diviners could design for them to shatter, tatter and scatter the cherished peace and mutual coexistence nurtured in Jalingo-Maiha?
“Idi could only have the fetish thugs and ghost to command, not the teeming God-fearing faithful that do not regard him as any district head rather than a robot spitting doom in Jalingo-Maiha District.
“We’re a peace-living, peaceloving community ever united. The Adamawa state ministry of local government and chieftaincy affairs with Mubi Emirate Council, should not engage in any correspondence that is inimical to unity, peace and progress in Jalingo-Maiha District,” the group advised.
A man of wisdom engaged in conversation lamented that there was a need for a review.
“What can never be tolerated in Adamawa Emirate, is accommodated in Mubi Emirate, Why?”
