Rejoinder: Pedestrian Attempt to Rubbish TeeJay Yusuf

Spread the love


Our attention has been drawn to a malicious news release in some Kogi-based news portal against the person, and office of Hon. TeeJay Yusuf, Member representing Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu Federal Constituency.

The said release purportedly issued by one Ikusagba Esther Omoyeni on behalf of APC Women Leaders in Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu Federal Constituency, is nothing but a bogus effort and pedestrian attempt to rubbish the hard-earned credibility, integrity and image of our very dear conscientious and resourceful Hon. TeeJay Yusuf.

As beneficiaries of the numerous development programmes and empowerment initiative of Hon. TeeJay Yusuf, since 2011, we make bold to declare that the said article authored by a faceless and shadowy character (who from background checks is not known by the APC in Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu Federal Constituency), is blatantly baseless, ingeniously futile, and outright falsehood. It is puerile in content, reckless in delivery, spuriously tendentious, banal in logic, warped in reasoning and kindergarten in language.

The true worth of the article is that it is ONLY fit for juvenile tales by moonlight. Having properly situate where the article ought to be placed – the abyss, dust, it is imperative to use this medium to educate and inform the ghost-like “spokesperson of APC Women Leaders in Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu Federal Constituency” about the numerous empowerment initiatives of Hon. TeeJay Yusuf and strategic projects he has facilitated to our constituency since 2011.

Perhaps we need to remind the faceless author and others in her Group that, prior to Hon. TeeJay Yusuf’s emergence as a Federal Legislator, those before him; since 1999, either as Rep. or Senator in Okunland, always sing songs of “not possible” deceiving the people that projects and initiatives are far beyond their reach.

Thankfully, in strict adherence to his pledge for sincerity, selfless service and performance, Hon. TeeJay Yusuf opened our eyes. God used him to expose the deceit, lies and serial betrayal of our past Legislators. We know; and it is true that, Hon. TeeJay Yusuf built Skill Acquisition Centres in Okebukun, Iyara and Okedayo; ICT Centres in Ogidi, Okoro Gbedde and Kabba; Blocks of Classrooms in Ekinrin Adde. To improve infrastructure, many communities have benefitted from Solar Street Lights, Solar Boreholes and Transformers donated/distributed by our amiable Hon. TeeJay Yusuf. In education, many of our children are beneficiaries of scholarship; students participate in his yearly summer school studies and Quiz competition; regular financial support to indigent students and so on.

Through him some of our unemployed Youths got jobs in Federal Agencies; entrepreneurial, vocational and agricultural training for some youths and women. It is on record that no Legislator; since 1999, has impacted our people through various empowerment initiative more than Hon. TeeJay Yusuf. We know, and it is true that, in the location of projects and distribution of empowerment materials, the principles of equity and fairness are strictly adhered to by Hon. TeeJay.

We know, and it is true that, ALL the Thirty Wards of Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu Federal Constituency have benefited from one or more of Hon. TeeJay Yusuf’s project/empowerment initiative.

We know, and it is true that numerous Individuals, Groups, Associations; Women, Religious (Christian and Islamic), PDP, APC and other political parties, Tribal Unions – Igbo, Ebira, Tiv, Igala and other sections of people resident in the Federal Constituency have been given forms and selected to be beneficiaries of the 1st Phase of the GEEP Empowerment Loan, facilitated by our dynamic Hon TeeJay Yusuf; who is ever passionate and committed to the social and economic well-being of us, all.

While we counsel the fictitious Ikusagba Esther Omoyeni to stop “her” (doubt if she is a woman) campaign of calumny, misinformation, deceit, nefarious propaganda and inglorious hatchet job, we advise the good people of Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu Federal Constituency to be very wary of the antics of such character.

To our hardworking, resourceful and responsive Hon. TeeJay Yusuf, we encourage him not to be deterred by the theatrics of very few and negligible people whose agenda is to dissuade him, set him against other Legislators from Okunland and sow seed of discord between him and his Constituents.

We encourage him to continue to offer purposeful representation and quality service to the good people of Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu Federal Constituency.
