A press release sent to Premium Times on Friday said Mr Hayatudeen did this when he re-registered as a member of the Borno State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party at a ceremony in Maiduguri on Sunday, 23 January. At the event, Mr Hayatudeen had an interactive session with the state PDP Exco led by the chairman, Zanna Gaddama, PDP local government executives of Maiduguri Metropolitan and Jere Local Governments as well as Ward Executive officers. Speaking to Daily Nigerian, the spokesperson for the Command, SP Abdullahi Haruna, noted the police decided to arrest Magaji after he failed to honourably submit himself to police for questioning despite several invitations. The event resulted in the ‘uniting of the state’s two PDP factions who had been at odds for a long time. Lamidi said the concerned officials were to provide further clarifications on the record books of the affected councils before the State lawmakers. “They both united under Gaddama’s leadership and pledged to work hard for the party’s success at the state and federal levels in the upcoming elections,” the statement noted. The Police spokesperson said, “We are currently investigating charges of defamation of character, intentional insult, injurious falsehood and inciting disturbance against Muazu Magaji. In his speech at the occasion, Mr Hayatudeen said ”Nigeria is headed in the wrong direction”. “And I call on him to, at this point in time, return the secretariat to the PDP of the southeast party, let me also call on him to immediately release of the PDP officer whom he has taken to court with trump up charges, we are all supposed to be democratic, not tyrants.

He said “signs of decay have been looming on the horizon for quite some time and over the last 13 years, the economy and our society have been in free fall as we have been witnesses to the sharp and rapid unraveling of our way of life, our dignity and self-worth as a people and our time honored institutions. A copy of the formal complaint letter read in part: “We are Solicitors to the Executive Governor of Kano State, His Excellency, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, (hereinafter referred to as “our client”) and on whose behalf we write to directly complain against Muazu Magaji (hereinafter referred to as “the suspect”) for the commission of the grievous offences of Criminal Defamation of Character, Assault, Intentional Insult with the Intent to Provoke Breach of Peace and Inciting Disturbance and Disaffection contrary to inter-alia the provisions of Sections 114, 264 and 399 of the Penal Code Law in force in Kano State, meted on our client. F.” He also said “the most perplexing and egregious issue of the moment is the carnage being unleashed on citizens by connoisseurs of violence and terror all over our peace loving and God fearing communities. Not by the wildest stretch of the imagination did I ever conceive of the nation being bathed by such vast oceans of blood of innocent men, women and children in tandem with the displacement of entire communities. “We are instructed by our client that the said picture had been widely circulated by the suspect on several social media platforms, in a brazen attempt to assassinate the character, goodwill, good name and image of our client, the first citizen of Kano State, which he built for several decades in civil service and in frontline politics in Nigeria.” He said he can directly relate to the pains, anguish and trauma experienced by victims of kidnapping, banditry and terror because Boko Haram abducted his younger sister, married with children, in Bama in 2016, killed her 7-year-old son while she and her toddler child were held at Sambisa Forest for two years before she managed to escape. Others included nugatory payments, improper signing of payment vouchers and self procurements by some council chairmen amongst others which were against financial regulations. He called for a speedy return of IDPs to their ancestral homes in order to rebuild their shattered lives. And as law-abiding citizens since the Supreme Court pronounced on it we had to start preparing for the next elections which are scheduled for February next year.

Mr Hayatudeen, an economist and life-long banker, said Nigeria’s socio-economy “has been eviscerated by chronically inefficient allocation of resources and mismanagement. “The government (which should be small and an enabler of business) is ballooning while businesses (large, medium and small) are shrinking. Related Topics:. No wonder that vast sections of this country have been torched up by bandits and terrorists.” He called for citizens’ action and participation in political affairs, saying “Many of us are simply complacent and just happy to go about seeking our daily bread and not bothering to take an active interest in how we are governed and administered. But how do we ever expect change to happen if we, as citizens, do not effectively participate in the political process, demand results from leaders and hold them accountable?” Mr Hayatudeen said he decided to re-establish his membership of PDP because “it has a national outlook, accumulated substantial governance experience during its 16 years in power, and it has had time to reflect on its achievements and failures in its 6 years in opposition”.

He said PDP ”has pulled its act together based on the disciplined and seamless manner it conducted elections for various party offices and organs, the heavy emphasis it placed on merit and the mature and methodical manner in which it has proceeded to conduct its affairs since the election”. Mr Hayatudeen spoke about his passion for national development which he “sharpened right from his days at Government College, Keffi and ABU, Zaria to his stints at NNDC, the single largest diversified holding company in Nigeria with investments in 145 companies straddling a large spectrum of industries,” as founding member and one-tine Chairman of Nigeria Economic Summit Group [NESG], member of Vision 2020 project; member of President Jonathan’s Presidential Advisory Committee led by General T.Y. Danjuma as well as member of President-elect Buhari’s Presidential Transition Committee led by Alhaji Ahmed Joda”. .
