THE DEATH OF OPPOSITION IN KATSINA & IT IMPLICATION
Shawara ta ta 829
Despite the Challenges, ‘impunity’ and Cyber Bullying we experienced in the then katsina Social Media Space, it was still the best time. There was content, objectives, quality of reasons, opinions, decorum, and Respect. Some of us Can still Remember with Nostalgia ‘Katsina Discussion Group’ of blessed memory.
I can Still Remember how we Analyse almost every govt Policy. How articles of the likes Abdullahi I. Mahuta on Budget analysis and follow up to its implementation. How the then Hon. Ahmad Babba Kaita Spits Fire to the Govt with facts and Figures. How Isa Ahmed , Lawal Mamman Dawai, and Maiwada Danmalam try to lure us into opposition politics with Critical Analysis of Govt Spendings and Local Politics.
I also remember Strong ladies on the keyboard like Fatima Sanda Kaita, Safina Muhammad B etc. They were fearless, despite some of them are with Govt. .The Responses of Muntari Dandume, Aminu Jibia, Karfi, Ingawa were always clear and informative. There was minimal psychopathy then.
Those days I mostly Post thrice a week. 2 against and 1 Supporting a govt Policy. I held my principle of ‘No Govt. is useless’. Despite Various Meetings and Calls for me to be a full-time critic and join Opposition, i Resist. For obvious reasons.
Now fast track to 2019. The opposition party has turned to a mere Contesting Platform. We don’t see constructive Criticism, we don’t see Objective Posts that are convincing and Satisfying. We don’t see Budget analysis neither do we see the implementation, fund releases, and percentages. I can vividly remember a thread on a Katsina Higher Institutions budget and appropriations, it was a lengthy debate that I wish I can see again.
It’s disheartening now to see that some Opposition figures are Shy to be associated with their parties. Some even hide their Real Names and Pictures. Haba!! For our Democracy to grow, we need Good opposition. It ll gnash the Meal of governance
I hope to see us having debates on development and security. Let us see new and better ideas let me repeat my words ‘Weak opposition weaken Democracy, Governance and government(AA2019)’.
The opposition in Katsina has made the Govt so Slow and inactive that we dont even see Press Releases. We are only filled with Pictures and Praises of Politicians. Like an shanyesu.
Ya kamata ku farka yan adawa. Basai shekarar Zabe ba. Ku taimaki alumma wurin kwa6ar gwamnati. Ance wanzami bayasan Jarfa, saboda haka dakunyi korafi zasu gyara.
