The black cap revolution movement, an All Progressives Congress (APC) youth pressure group has called on the Adamawa state house of assembly to investigate the allegations of certificate forgery against Governor Muhammadu Umaru Jibrilla Bindow.
The group which identify itself with Integrity Transparency and Good Governance, marched in their hundreds to the state house of assembly complex, Yola carrying placards with different inscriptions demanding clarification over the alleged WAEC certificate forgery by Gov. Bindow.
In a letter to the speaker, Adamawa state house of assembly, Kabiru Mijinyawa signed by the group leader, Mustapha Atiku Ribadu, the group noted that the honourable house must have been aware of the allegation levelled against the governor on certificate forgery, which is a criminal offense. The case is in public domain, as it was reported by many newspapers.
Other bodies called by the Black Cappers as seen on the placards/banners carried by their member at the Demonstration are the West African Examination Council (WAEC), Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the ruling Party, APC.
In the letter which was received by the Clark of the house, Francis Gbansenso, the group reminds the House that, ” when there was allegation of bribe taking (Kickback) from the Kano State Governor by an online newspaper, the Kano State house of Assembly acted swiftly by inviting the publisher and also writing to the governor seeking explanation”.
The Group’s letter to the state House of Assembly reads:
CALL FOR URGENT ACTION TO CLARIFY THE FORGERY ALLEGATION OF GOV. BINDOW’S CERTIFICATE
The Blackcap revolution movement is a youth political pressure group in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa State. The Blackcap Revolution Movement is founded and sponsored by iTag (Integrity Transparency and Good Governance), as it is the cardinals of our great party under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR.
We write this letter with all sense of responsibility and patriotism to this honourable house, to convey our concern and worry over the deafening silence of the Adamawa State house of Assembly on the certificate saga of His excellency Gov. Bindow Umaru Jibrilla.
We sincerely believe the honourable house is aware of the allegation levelled against the governor on certificate forgery, which is a criminal offense. The case is in public domain, as it was reported by many newspapers, one of which was the publication by the Daily Trust newspaper on the 29th of October, 2018. The paper reported that, a group known as Incorporated Trustees of Global Integrity Crusade Network, filed a case with an Abuja division of the federal High court, presided over by Justice B.O Quadri.
Ruling on the application for a motion experte brought before him on October 22, 2018, Justice Quadri granted the prayers of the plaintiff for accelerated hearing as well a leave to serve originating summons to Governor Bindow Umaru Jibrilla and the West African Examination Council (WAEC) at their respective addresses. Those also joined as defendants includes the Independent national electoral commission (INEC), the All progressives congress (APC) and the police.
As youth group who believes in the rule of law, and tenets of our great party we found the news very disturbing and hence need urgent action from this honourable house.
It could be recalled recently when there was allegation of bribe taking (Kickback) from the Kano State Governor by an online newspaper, the Kano State house of Assembly acted swiftly by inviting the publisher and also writing to the governor seeking explanation.
We are equally asking the Adamawa State house of Assembly to wade into the matter to unravel the veracity of the allegation.
Mustapha Atiku Ribadu
