david umarThe Senator representing Niger East Senatorial District, David Umar, has accused the State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello of marginalisation, saying his appointments so far were not equitably distributed among the three zones of the state.

The senator, who made the observation while addressing journalists in Minna, the Niger State capital, pointed out that Governor Bello’s administration did not give recourse to the principle of federal character, lamenting that nobody from his zone was appointed.

“What we have now is that our people are being short changed. Secretary to the State Government (SSG) is from the governor’s hometown of Kontagora. I want to warn that people are complaining against this injustice and their patient is being tested. I therefore advised the government and those who are responsible to immediately address the situation”, he said.

The former governorship candidate added: “It is disheartening for this administration not to show equity to the people of Niger East, despite the fact that the zone produced the greatest number of votes during the presidential and governorship elections. During the period leading to the election, we had understanding that all of us have to go out to ensure victory for our party at all levels. We did all what was humanly possible to ensure victory at the polls. I used all my energy and efforts to ensure the result we got. In the process of doing this, we made promises to our people among them was the fact that there will be equity in the sharing of positions and that we were going to bring meaningful change”.

Reacting to the senator’s allegation, the governor’s spokesperson, Dr. Ibrahim Dooba, said it was false, adding that only a few appointments have been made and that even the state cabinet has not yet been constituted.
