Politics is indeed a dirty game, but he who comes to equity must come with clean hands. For those who have been in this business for long, they surely know that with politics comes issues, challenges, brickwalls and pebbles.
As if the challenges are not enough, most of the issues that happen to people around politicians are deemed to have occured through them through the level of their influence and popularity among the majority.
Alhassan Ado Doguwa is a household name in Kano. He is currently the Majority Leader of Nigeria’s House of Representatives and has just won re-election.
On Tuesday, he was arrested at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport by the Criminal Investigative Bureau of the Kano Police Command. He was later arraigned and remanded in a correctional facility till the next adjournment date on cases bordering on murder, criminal conspiracy and others relating to the death of three persons, on Sunday February 26, 2023 while the collation was on-going.
We say without any equivocation that our distinguished Lawmaker is not guilty of the said acts. While we await the Police investigation, which will bring the perpetrators to justice, we sincerely hold that Hon. Ado-Doguwa is a respected statesman who has not at any point in time been found wanting of any criminal case.
Asides the fact that he has a enviable record of being a family man and a politician who has brought unprecedented development to his constituency ever since his first election, he is well respected across political divides. We however find this news and development very disturbing.
We call on the leadership of our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), Governor Umar Abdullahi Ganduje, Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila and other respected Nigerians to come to Hon. Ado-Doguwa’s aid. This is clearly an attempt to smear him and bring his personality, the party and the National Assembly to disrepute.
We stand behind our leader in this trying times. We also urge the Police and other security agencies to conclude their investigations thoroughly. Hon. Doguwa is not a killer and will never be.
Free Ado-Doguwa now.
