From Mika’il Tsoho Dutse
The Jigawa state government has debunked report from an online media that it had held a political meeting in Kaduna state saying it is false and mischievous.
This was contained in a statement signed by Bello Zaki the Special Adviser on Media to Governor Badaru and issued to newsmen yesterday in Dutse.
Bello Zaki explained that the government had indeed held a meeting comprising of the elders and other stake holders from the state under the auspices of, ‘Jigawa Forum’ to deliberate on the way forward for the state.
He said that the forum which comprises of businessmen, farmers, artisans, politicians, military and Para military officers retired and active ones regularly meets to discuss issues affecting the development of the state where everyone’s input is noted and effectively utilised.
According to the statement the publication was not only mischievously crafted but was aimed to mislead the public as it did not truly capture the true essence of the meeting.
