Kabiru Garba Marafa who visited the Governor simply to perfect his defection to PDP is a clear manifest quackery of not having the capacity to authenticate any piece of garbage presented to its editors as news. Either way, it speaks foul of this medium


Bappa further said, “no picture of this event was taken except that of the Director-General on New Media to the Governor which is the picture used by the Sahara Reporters and indeed, by anyone else.
