Adamawa Crisis: Lamido Blames Elite, Calls For Unity

By The Rainbow

Disturbed by the lingering crisis rocking Adamawa state, the Adamawa paramount ruler, Dr Muhammadu Barkindo Aliyu Musdafa, has blamed the political elite for the woes, regretting that political feuds were responsible for the setback recorded.

The monarch, who is the state chairman of council of emirs and traditional rulers, advised politicians in the country to guide their conscience with the fear of God. Dr. Musdafa, who made a Sallah homage call on Governor Murtala Nyako at Government House, Yola, yesterday explained that the electorate expected much from the elite controlling the political sphere and cautioned politicians against promoting violence.

'Lest we forget that no matter the level of protection one enjoys the same violent he sponsored would still consume one. Crisis is not good especially if it is promoted by the leadership because at the end of it, it will consume the leader no matter the level of protection he enjoys', the royal father stated.

Lamido Adamawa maintained that, 'Leaders are ordained  by God to occupy the position  of responsibility by the sheer will of the Almighty Allah not because of their  physical attribute or educational status. If physical attribute would be the yardstick of occupying position of authority, none of the Nigerians leaders now would scale through.''

Also speaking during the homage, Emir of Mubi, Alhaji Abubakar Isah Ahmadu,had disclosed that  the staff strength at Mubi General hospital is grossly inadequate as the hospital lacks enough doctors.'

'As I am talking to you now, we have only two doctors including the PMO. We are therefore appealing for more medical personnel to cater for the teeming population,'' he said.
