Mischief has become the dominant ingredient of political- opposition for leaders of the All Progressives Congress, APC. Most of the times, when APC leaders criticize governors in a opposition party, they do so not on the basis of facts that they are sure of but relying heavily on falsehood that is also heavily laced with the venom of hate.
The intention, always, is to blackmail a government or political leaders that do not carry their party membership cards.
A case that readily comes to mind is that of
Bobboi Kaigama, APC’s Gubernatorial campaign director in the recent elections in Taraba State who proved himself heavily guilty of this malady when he appeared on an AIT programme on Wednesday May 1.
With a bag full of lies which he clumsily brought to the AIT studios was the allegation that the government of Taraba State had not done anything good in four years and that everybody in government were thieves, sharing government resources.
His anger was obviously fueled by the fact that Taraba is not presently being governed and will not be governed by the APC even in the next political dispensation because the party lost the 2019 election.
You can imagine Bobboi Kaigama’s tragic perception of political opposition which is to lie against the opponent. Terrible!
Bobboi Kaigama and his other APC leaders in Taraba State should come to terms with the reality of their electoral failure. APC has lost the 2019 election in the state and there’s nothing they can do about it.
Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku did a lot for the state in his first tenure that would be ending in a few weeks. He is determined to do much more in his second tenure and would not be distracted by the antics of Bobboi Kaigama and other APC leaders in the state.
