The Numan Youth Stakeholders Forum (NYSF) has threatened to recall the deputy speaker, Adamawa state House of Assembly for misleading claims that some courses offered in Numan campus of the state Polytechnic, Yola was move to the main campus; also TETFUND project meant for Numan branch of the institution was also moved to Yola.
In a statement by its president, Charles Pwanovi, the group regretted that the lies and the statement credited to the deputy speaker that courses were moved from Numan to the main campus is misleading and highly regrettable.
Labelling Mackondo’s stewardship as unimpressive, NYSF worries that bills of public interest and recently passed laws that enable the setting up of a new branch of ADSU, Mubi should be pursued to a logical conclusion, not this odium and display of ignorance we are witnessing from Mackondo in the plenary.
The statement reads: “We are disturbed by the frequent misguided state and lies coming from the member representing us in the state House of Assembly, one wonders how Mackondo could utter such a misguided statement on the floor of the house without thorough investigation to buttress his claims.
“We are cognisant of the separation of powers in a democratic setting, but it is shocking to see the deputy speaker using the alibi of moving projects and courses from Numan to Yola to gain relevance in the Assembly.”
“Surprisingly, the deputy speaker could make such a weighty allegation without specifying the courses and the projects move to Yola, or it is a plan to hoodwink the management of the Polytechnic into their settling the committee on education.
“We are giving the deputy speaker 14 days ultimatum from now to apologise to the Governor and the management of the polytechnic, or we recall him.
