NYAKO'S ADAMAWA STATE AND INDE DIKKO'S CUSTOM RECRUITMENT LIST
That Rear Admiral Murtala Nyako has always been said to be a Fulani zealot is glaring in his Fulani nepotism in the ruling of Adamawa State. If that has stopped there, so be it. But I believe it is the high point of criminal nepotism to extend that to Federal establishments like the Nigeria Customs and Excise recruitment list released recently. A check through the list of 24 names recruited from Adamawa State has 22 Fulani Muslims while only two names belong to the other tribes.
Can Alhaji Abdullahi Inde Dikko, Comptroller of Nigeria Customs and Governor Murtala Nyako explain to Nigerians on what bases 22 Fulani candidates were recruited from Adamawa State? Adamawa State has 21 local government areas. Does it mean that all the local governments are inhabited by the Fulanis? What is the fate of the other tribes in Nyako’s Adamawa State?
As a matter of national emergency, the Federal Government must cancel the Nigeria Custom list just released and conduct a new recruitment to reflect the federal character principles in Adamawa State particularly and other states like Kaduna, Nasarawa, Niger, Gombe and Taraba amongst others.
The vocal House of Representatives which is always eager to call for state of emergency in Plateau State but is now silence on the menace of Boko Haram in Borno State must call Inde Dikko to explain what criteria was used in the recent custom and excise recruitment particularly in Adamawa State.
The nepotism is too glaring in favour of the Fulani ethnic groups.
The Federal government, National Assembly and the Adamawa State House of Assembly must treat this as a matter of national emergency.
