It is misleading and utterly disgraceful for Taraba Truth and Fact to peddle lies, opposite of what transpired at the APC meeting in Abuja.
Adi Shekarau Masa-Abi didn’t slap Danji SS and he, Danji SS didn’t trade words with the former. It was a fabrication of fallacy by an online source that feed on half-baked stories for cheap propaganda and money-making.
What happened was simple. Some APC stakeholders in southern Taraba bribed the ushers who gave them tags to access the meeting that was made for critical stakeholders. They were not invited to the meeting owing to their light party statue in such a mega meeting.
And reasons as to why due processes were boycotted to have such elements into the meeting remain unknown to Danji SS and his teeming followers.
So, the likes of Adi Shekarau who aren’t stakeholders infiltrated the meeting.
So while the meeting was going on those intruders, including Adi resorted to throwing decorum to the wind, behaving as if they were acting a script by asking senseless questions and insulting Danji SS.
Danji SS now asked why would those who weren’t stakeholders in APC Taraba be part of the meeting and were asking questions typical of ‘thugs’, then suddenly Adi Shekarau rose and walked to Danji SS and tapped him on his chest three times, challenging him for asking why they should be part of a meeting that was not meant for their class.
Danji SS didn’t utter a word nor dignify Adi with an affront.
He weighed his office, age, education, and maturity and kept mute, leaving Adi to keep ranting.
Suddenly Adi was swept down to the floor and beaten up by one of Danji SS’ loyalists who came from behind having seen the outpour of arrogance exhibited by the Prince. Though, that development wasn’t even comfortable with Danji SS!
Danji SS can’t condescend to that level of trading words with an inconsequential Adi, as far as APC is concerned in Taraba.
Why should a two-time performing member of House of Rep worry about an inconsequential being who availed himself to be used by some selfish politicians who aren’t comfortable with the soaring popularity of Danji SS?
Adi just wants to gain cheap popularity for fabricating lies that Danji SS insulted the late Aku Uka, after messing up himself with the federal lawmaker without gaining his response. He did that frame-up to cover up his shameful act!
Who in Wukari, Ibi, and even across southern Taraba doesn’t know that Danji SS revered the late Aku Uka as a father and the Supreme Leader of the Jukun Nation? Even among the siblings of Adi, many weren’t happy with that unholy attitude of one of them who allowed himself to be used by some politicians to disrespect a man who has contributed much for Wukari, both human and infrastructural wise, apart from attributing unalloyed honor and loyalty to the late Aku Uka until his transition as a true Jukun son who has made Jukun-speaking pride in the global sphere.
It is unfortunate that Taraba Truth and Fact have chosen the path of junk journalism and stampeding on professionalism for meal tickets.
Ordinary it is expected of any reputable newspaper to always collect stories from both sides before sharing with the public. But sadly, Taraba Truth and Fact, owing to its mission subscribed to sharing naked lies when tipped with money.
This is not the first time, this junk newspaper is making issues out of nothing when coins are doled to its palm.
It is therefore advisable for followers of this paper to exercise caution while patronizing Taraba Truth and Fact.
