Bafarawa Has Lost Relevance, Says Wamakko



Senator Aliyu Wamakko has said former Sokoto state governor, Attahiru Bafarawa’s quest for power is a sign of desperation, amateur and unprofessional.

He said Bafarawa lost relevance since he left office as governor of Sokoto state over a decade ago, and that has been the basis at which the former governor keeps attacking him by writing aimless petitions to EFCC and granting press conferences, in order to make headlines.

Senator Wamakko, who is representing Sokoto north at the national assembly said this while briefing some newsmen in Abuja.

He said, “It is quite embarrassing to see that joblessness has turned Attahiru Bafarawa into a petition writer.”

Wammako added that “he is a very busy man, apart from his senatorial responsibilities; he is right now tasked with serious issues of election campaigns, in order to bring Sokoto state back to the masses that voted for APC but were short-changed.

“Let me tell you that since Mr. Bafarawa shot himself on the foot more than a decade ago, he lost relevance in politics, and out of frustration, he went to the EFCC with a petition against me. He is doing all these in order to make headlines. He should know that I have some work to do, apart from my senatorial duties, I am also actively involved in the campaigns ahead the general elections,” said Wamakko.

He added that the former governor has the right to take up his case anywhere, if he has any case than deliberate attempt to drag him into disrepute.

He wondered why Bafarawa is doing this now at this period of campaigns.

“I challenged Mr Attahiru Bafarawa and his party to come on board with real issues that address the plight of the masses to campaign and not cheap blackmail. His vindictive mission against me stems out of defeat that I am the main leader recognised by the people of Sokoto today and that he has lost relevance,” said Senator Wamakko.
