BY: OUR REPORTER,

 IN RESPECT OF AN ICT CENTER PURPORTED TO HAVE BEEN BUILT AND EQUIPPED IN DENGI THE HEADQUARTER OF KANAM L.G.A, BY SENATOR JOSHUA CHIBI DARIYE.

Our attention has been drawn flabbergasted and dismayed, to the publication contained in page 30 of the empowerment programme of senator Joshua Chibi Dariye dated 3rd July 2017, that captured a portrait of building and some set of computers purportedly to have been constructed, purchased and sited as an ICT Centre in Dengi Kanam Local Government Area, representing the good people of central zone of Plateau State.
 
We want to put it in record in the interest of truth and justice that as much as we known and by the investigation we thoroughly carried out, there was and there is Nothing LIKE THAT IN DENGI OR ANY WHERE IN KANAM LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA.

However, the portrait of the building supposedly to be the purported ICT CENTRE DENGI, resembled in size, shape, colour and location with residential apartment of one UZAIRU MUHAMMAD (TURAKIN TAKZUL) otherwise there is no any structure like the one contained in the aforementioned programme in Dengi.

Inview of the Above, we spoke with the said UZAIRU MUHAMMAD, and he confirmed to us that he was once approached by one politician from Kanam on the issues of hire purchase for that but did not entered into any formal agreement to that effect. He also confirmed to us that he erected the building from the scratch and he did not transferred the possession and ownership of the said property to any person or corporate organization either in the name of rent or sale. As he is still in possession of all the documents of his property. And the said property has no any computer(s) therein.

We are saying this publicly today being 7th July, 2017 that the claim by the SENATOR that the purported ICT CENTRE is in Dengi, well furnished and well equipped with computers and other electronic gadgets is a scam of the highest order and exist only in the figment of his imaginations.

On this note, we want to scorn vehemently, the clams that has he constructed an ICT CENTRE in Dengi, and the millions of naira supposedly to have been used for the project has only went down waterloo. We also want to remind the Senator that we are still waiting patiently for his maiden project in Kanam as a SENATOR because hitherto there is none that he carried out for the 6 (six) years he has been in the senate.

As a people, we consider the disrespectful manner he has projected the issue as an utter mark of neglect of the people that gave him the fattest votes in his first term bid to represent us in the upper legislative chamber. We also want to remind him of the rousing welcome he used to be greeted with and call on him to reciprocate by giving Kanam the priority it deserved in his plans for the remaining periods.

Otherwise we have sufficient reason to believe that the SENATOR have no any genuine intention to do anything tangible for the people of Kanam.      

On the distribution of motorcycles that took place on the 3rd July, 2017 at Pankshin, we also want to use this medium to express our dissatisfaction with the process. It was reported that 20 (twenty) brand new motorcycles were given to the people of Kanam but to only realised much later that most of the motorcycles that reached the beneficiaries were second hand motorcycles.

We want to put it categorically clear here, that the era of impurity and smokescreen project is over in Kanam. By this, we therefore, want to remind the Senator that he is still owing us an ICT CENTRE in Kanam and we are waiting for the execution of the project.

Otherwise, Kanam, will never forgive him and posterity will not be kind to him for betraying the mandate and trust repost on him.

We are making this release consistently believing that the Senator will ponder on the issue raised with a view to effecting corrections. We address these issues without any ill will or motive against the SENATOR or his aid(s) if any from Kanam, but to clarify the issue and put the record straight in the overall interest of Kanam and posterity reasons.

To the law abiding people of Kanam, especially the youths, religion, tribal and community development associations, we appeal for calmness as we continue to speak on their behalves. Now more than ever, we cannot afford to rest on our Laurels in our efforts to call for the restoration of good representation and good governance and to pursue for good things for our people.
Thank you and God bless.
