Breach of Trust: Northern Coalition Groups urge recall of Sen. Yar’Adua

The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) has said that the comments on the bombing of the civilian population in Kaduna by Senator Musa Yar’Adua lacked compassion, pity, and empathy towards the bereaved community and consequently, called for his immediate recall from the Senate.

“The recent bomb attack in a Kaduna village has left the nation in shock and mourning after the loss of hundreds of innocent lives. During this difficult time, the senator’s comments, which displayed a lack of compassion, pity, and empathy towards the bereaved community are insensitive, self-serving, and irresponsible,” the CNG said in a statement by its national coordinator, Jamilu Aliyu Charanchi.

The CNG lamented that the insensitivity and self-serving, nature of Senator Yar’Adua’s comments have put the blame on the bereaved community while absolving the military. “Such remarks show a severe lack of compassion, pity, and empathy towards the affected families. At a time when the nation should unite in grief and provide comfort to the impacted families, Senator Yar’Adua’s statements have only deepened their pain and sorrow”, it stated.

“It is expected that every leader in this period of mourning should show deep empathy, care and sensitivity towards the affected families. Rather than causing any more pain and anguish to the families, political leaders should unite and work together to prevent such attacks from happening again”, Charanchi said.

According to the CNG, the remarks on the Kaduna killings by Senator Yar’Adua were driven by excessive greed for favours from the Senate leadership at the expense of the lives of innocent Northern lives.

The CNG called on voters to be vigilant in the future to guard against returning the likes of Yar’Adua who are unreliable, untrustworthy to any position of responsibility.

“By shifting blame onto the bereaved community, he not only disrespects their suffering, but also fails to acknowledge the magnitude of the tragedy. This insensitivity breaches the trust and confidence that the people of Katsina placed in him as their representative. It is imperative that elected officials demonstrate sensitivity and understanding, particularly in times of crisis.”

CNG then called for Yar’Adua’s recall from the Senate saying while political leaders should use this period of national mourning to show leadership, compassion, and sympathy to their fellow citizens, Senator Yar’Adua’s comments have only served to deepen the wound of an already grieving nation.

CNG warned political leaders to remember that their words hold great weight and can have a significant impact on the morale of the nation. It said Yar’Adua has not only tarnished his own name but also betrayed the integrity of the reputable Musa Yar’Adua family.
