PRESS STATEMENT:

MALICIOUS AND DEFAMATORY PUBLICATION AGAINST THE PERSONALITY OF THE HON. DANJUMA USMAN SHIDDI BY SOFT SELL NEWSPAPER, TARABA TRUTHS AND FACTS

In a shameless and clear case of abuse of all journalistic ethics and rules of engagement, Taraba Truths and Facts newspaper, one of the tabloids operating in Taraba State, following a slander campaign against the personality of Hon. Danjuma Usman Shiddi again went to town with another moonlit tale from God knows where of the involvement of a campaign vehicle believed to be his as a weapon circulation tool.

While in normal times we would not have wanted to waste our time responding to this malicious publication of TTF because it has become the business of its publisher, but in order not to mislead and deceive the well-meaning public, we would like to to categorically declare this honorable. Danjuma Usman Shiddi, a high-ranking member of the National Assembly, chairman of the all-important National Assembly Internal Security Committee, such a member can never be implicated in such a nefarious act.

We also wish to state that this sponsored news is a desperate attempt to smear the ever-growing and imposing credentials of the Honorable Hon. ‘it affects the race in Taraba. South Senatorial Quarter.

In other climates, this type of irresponsible journalism filled with sheer malevolence will never go unpunished, as critical regulatory bodies like the Nigerian Press Council will be called upon to step in to punish the journalist in error, but unfortunately we are in a anything goes society, which is why people like Ayo and his Taraba Truths and Facts flout caution and violate the basic ethos of this respected profession.

However, we take comfort in the fact that the Honorable Danjuma Usman Shiddi, a detribalized Nigerian, an astute politician, a cerebral gentleman, a seasoned legislator and a man of integrity and spotlessness will never allow such a campaign driven by envy to deter him in his quest to continue providing the democratic dividends his people so desperately need.

We therefore condemn in full this offensive publication, the publishing house and its publisher for allowing themselves to be used as a tool to carry out ax work of this magnitude just to ridicule the image of the Honorable Member and we call on Tarabaians to beware of the antics of the Taraba Truths and Facts newspaper as it does not mean well for our people.
