Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Yakubu Dogara, on Sunday came down hard of the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena in his attempt to link him with a cyber-crime suspect, Ramon Abbas, popularly called Hushpuppy, who was recently arrested in the United Arab Emirates and extradited to the United States because Hushpuppy was in a group photography with him.
A furious Dogara, in a statement signed by Turaki Hassan, described Nabena’s move as infantile, perfidious and fatuous, wondering if he was guilty of selective amnesia or share perfidy and why he did not issues such a statement linking several chieftains of his party with another alleged cyber criminal called Mompha on account of them being in a group photography with him.
Dogara chided Nabena for dwelling on the mudane when Nigerians are hurting and struggling to survive. “Nabena should or ought to know that there is no honour in speaking about group pictures taken at public events when the nation is bleeding and most Nigerian families are struggling and hurting”.
The Full Statement Reads:
The fatuous and infantile statement by the smellfungus called Yekini Nabena
The statement issued by one Yekini Nabena on behalf of the All Progressives Congress (APC) desperately seeking to link Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara to suspected cyber criminals on the basis of a group picture taken at a public event, is to say the least, infantile, rash and fatuous.
This smellfungus, called Nabena should have known that it is share mindlessness to attempt to execute mischief and blackmail in plain sight before the public some of whom are better informed.
Who is that fool that links people to criminal activity simply because they appeared in a group picture at a public event comprising of people from different walks of life?
If appearing in a group photograph is what Nabena is now using to establish a link or connection to crimes or alleged criminals then why didn’t he issue such a statement in the wake of the arrest of a suspected money launderer by name Ismaila Mustapha, AKA: Mompha whose pictures with notable personalities including some APC Governors are all over the social media? Is Nabena guilty of selective amnesia or share perfidy? Who is Nabena scared of? Who is he trying to fool?
For the records, Rt Hon Yakubu Dogara has agreed to wave his right to a trial and go to jail if Nabena establishes any form of links or connection between him and the alleged cyber criminal before the event where the picture was taken and after the event until now. For Rt Hon Yakubu Dogara, that picture was just another picture among the thousands, if not hundred of thousands of such pictures with Nigerians from all walks of life.
If the said Nabena is worth his salt, next time he speaks he should speak to issues affecting the welfare of our union which are well known to all discerning Nigerians. Nabena should or ought to know that there is no honour in speaking about group pictures taken at public events when the nation is bleeding and most Nigerian families are struggling and hurting.
