“Don’t use the name of Late Husseini Dembo to rehabilitate yourself politically”
Our consideration has been drawn to a statement credited to one Ben Bako, a one time Commissioner of Information in Kaduna whereby he tried to make a villain out of our Hero, Husseini Dembo of blessed reminiscence.
His statement was a response to a statement credited to some self appointed youths leaders of Southern Kaduna whereby they threatened to work in opposition to the PDP, a dominant get together in Southern Kaduna in the event that they damage Sen.Danjuma Tella Laah, the Senator Representing Southern Kaduna Senatorial District.
We would not have had course to meddle into the struggle of phrases between Ben Bako on one facet, the youths; and Sen Danjuma Laah on the different facet if he had not dragged the name of our Hero of blessed reminiscence into the class of political villains in his overzealous and inconsiderate rejoinder.

Ben Bako should observe that there isn’t a legislation wherever in Nigeria that criminalises defection from a political get together. As delicate as faith is in Nigeria, one is at liberty to change his religion. What extra of a political get together? Ben Bako wants to be reminded that Freedom of Association is assured in our Constitution, in case he’s not conscious of that.
It is the pomposity of people like Ben Bako and their quests to make villains out of the demise that in all probability instigated Governor Mukhtar Ramalan Yero to deserted all tasks initiated by Gov.Patrict Yakowa of blessed reminiscence. That tactical error pushed people to drove out of the PDP in protest. Result of 2015 common election is a pointer to that.
Lest we overlook, as the then Commissioner of Information, when the people of Takad the place experiencing brutal assaults from Herdsmen, Ben Bako was available to use his workplace to unilaterally embark on boundary demarcation by annexing Takad land to Plateau State. It is in consequence of his foolish conduct and gross unprofessionalism that Dr.John Danfulani as soon as described him as the precise character “Benjamin The Donkey” in Animal Farms, a fictional guide.
We perceive that 2023 is right here, people like Ben Bako which might be into politics for his or her pecuniary features are tempted to assume that operating their mouths like any person affected by Diarrhea of the mouth will make them related. He wants to perceive that life is above that. He has been tried, and located wanting. He carried out far under expectation.

Mr. Ben Bako should observe that the PDP is now in opposition, everybody in the get together wants to channel their energies towards combating the authorities in energy not members of their get together or the demise. We have each cause to imagine that he cannot do this as you’ll be able to’t go to fairness with dirty palms. Ben is simply too filty to name out the current regime; so as to maintain himself in circulation, he has resorted to combating the demise. As he takes the route widespread to people with out conscience, he should observe that there are people which might be extra weighty than him even in demise; Hon Husseini Dembo falls in that class.
Finally, in case Ben Bako has forgotten, Hon.Dembo did not be part of politics as a pauper, as a matter of reality, politics drained him and made him poor. His late father was nicely to do, he consolidated on it. When all you could have is in consequence of politics, you might be tempted to assume that, others are in Politics to emassed wealth. Only these with clear palms can opposed seating authorities with none worry of repression. Ben cannot do this, else, the subsequent morning his atrocities will discover him out and transport him to Kaduna Maximum jail.
