The fabricated news story making round in the social media alleging

that the Senator representing Yobe East Senatorial District in the

National Assembly, Senator Bukar Abba Ibrahim was involved in a sex

scandal is a compendium of lies, hatred, character assasination and

fraudulent news reportage whose collaborators are sons and daughters

of Satan.

Any objective mind who read the story and watched the fabricated video

will surely establish the fact that the video is a product of

sophisticated lies manufactured by a media laboratary technology some

where in Lagos in partnership with the political enemies of Senator

Bukar Abba Ibrahim. The failed goal is to discredit and destroy the

impeccable character and the unstoppable rising profile of the Yobe

born Senator.


For those who do not know about the Senator and would want to destroy

his hard-earned reputation for politics of opponent-destruction, the

man Senator Bukar Abba Ibrahim is not like any of these easy-found and

morally debased politicians we have out there, but a statesman par

excellence, an administrator of the highest order and a leader whose

political impeccability cannot be questioned by all standards because

he is morality personified.


At 67, Senator Bukar Abba has seen it all and would not do anything

contrary to tarnish his reputation at this age because an old man does

not learn new tricks at old age!


Therefore, as a civil servant who rose to become Permanent Secretary

and later Commissioner whose moral compass and developmental

achievements in Yobe State endeared him to the heart and soul of his

people who elected him as their governor for the first time in 1992

and is still one of the four longest-served governors in Nigeria

before becoming a Senator, the question the sponsors of the

blackmailling news report should have asked before embarking on the

image destruction project is, ‘would Nigerians believe our concoction

and lies?’


It is only in a country like Nigeria where there is no regard and

respect for the elders and statesmen that a group of disgruntled

elements with mercantile interest would wake up to scandalise an old

man whose public and private lives are impeccable and satisfactory.


For the records, the political comtemporaries of Senator Bukar Abba

Ibrahim who became governor at the same time in 1992 were fomer

governor Olusegun Osoba of Ogun State, former governor Jolly Nyame of

Taraba State and fomer governor Abubakar  Audu of Kogi State who died

in 2015.


That Senator Bukar Abba who served as governor for three times and has

being in the National Assembly as Senator representing Yobe East

Senatorial District is still active and relevant in Nigerian political

scene is because of his clean track records in office, impeccable and

scandal-free public and private lives.


So, if the Senator whom many across the country regards as role model

was not involved in any form of scandal during his youthful age when

he had all the strength and attractivess, is it now that he is an

elder, grand father and statesman that he would learn new tricks? Does

the fake news report make any logical sense?


For goodness sake, what will it profit the sponsors of the fake news

report who because of the permutation and calculation for 2019

elections are destroying the reputation of this elder statesman?


Have they forgotten that power belongs to God?


No matter what anybody thinks or do, Senator Bukar Abba Ibrahim

remains a great leader and would forever be one until the day the

Almighty Allah calls him.

  1. 247 U report falsehoods. The Senator with itchy loins himself confirmed he was indeed committing adultery with 2 ladies who are not any of his 3 beautiful wives.
