A Governorship aspirant of the People’s Democratic Party, Alh Abubakar Nakwada was on Monday denied a meeting hall he has rented for declaration of his intent to contest for the post of Governor of Zamfara state in the 2023 general election.
The mini dreamer started when the general manager of the Gusau Command Guest-in asked the organizers of the event and indeed journalists who were already seated in the hall where the event was scheduled to vacate until a police permit is issued to the management of the guest in by the organizers.
After a shot argument, one of the campaign leaders of the aspirants Mr. Taha Hamza handed down original copy of the police permit which was addressed to the manager of the guest in and dully signed by one DCP Dauda Mamman.
But despite that, the General Manager of the guest in insisted that his superior officers have issued an order that any police permit for political gathering to be issued to the management of the guest-in has to be signed by the Commissioner of Police not DCP.
But Mr. Taha Hamza angrily inquired why they collected money for the hiring of the meeting hall two days back when they knew that they have certain principles/conditions that are supposed to be fulfilled by the guest and are not madr known to them as organizers untill the date of the activity.
Supporters of the aspirant insisted they are not going anywhere since they have paid for the hall two days ahead of the event and that they have brought a permit from the police.
As at the time the drama was ongoing between the supporters of the aspirant and management of the guest -in, armed police men and operatives of NSCDC have arrived the venue of the event to offer security as requested.
Eventually, the event took place within the premises of the guest-in even though, the management denied the politician and his supporters access to the meeting hall.
The aspirant Abubakar Nakwada expressed dismay over the incident and insisted that these types of “attempt to political impunity” is part of the reasons why people like him are out to join the Governorship race and rescue the state system, describing the development as sad to democracy.
