Yoruba apex socio – political group, Afenifere wants Senate to reject Farida Dankaka’s nomination as FCC Chairman

Yoruba apex socio – political group , Afenifere , has rejected the nomination of Farida Dankaka as chairman of the Federal Character Commission and demanded that the Senate should not accept her.

The organisation said that although it had now become a familiar pattern, it would not allow the President Muhammadu Buhari to get away with yet another infraction at the commission.

The National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere , Yinka Odumakin, made the position known in a statement entitled , “FCC : Shunning the principle of federal character ” , obtained by newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday.

He said , “Afenifere calls on Senate to reject FCC nominee for chairman , Farida Dankaka . The FCC by the nomination of the new chairman would have a chairman from North (Kwara) and Secretary from the North (Taraba) in violation of Section four of the subsidiary legislation.

“This government has consistently violated one of the most ingenious and ambitious affirmative actions entrenched in our constitution to promote national unity uniquely named Federal Character.

“This consistent negation of a critical national consensus should be resisted and rejected by all well- meaning Nigerians starting from the Senate. The seed of national discord has been systematically sowed over the past five years and should be halted.

“The Senate should emphasise the supremacy of our constitution and the need to build an inclusive state . The coronavirus should be a wake -up call.

“If the President is not prevailed upon to reconstitute the leadership of the FCC to reflect federal character , the Senate would be legitimising the wanton impunity of the Buhari government.

“When Mr President appointed Mohammed Bello Tukur , the Legal Adviser of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria as the Secretary of the FCC , many thought it was to pave way for the first Southern chairman of the commission.

“That was not to be ; instead in a rather brazen act, the penultimate acting chairman, Mallam Shettima (Bukar Abba), rather than hand over to a Southern Commissioner handed over to the Secretary of the commission.

It was as if the government does not recognise that appointing a Miyetti Allah official as FCC Secretary was offensive enough .”
According to a brief history of the FCC leadership from 1966 till date provided by Odumakin , many of them had been from the north .

The substantive chairmen were Adamu Fika ( Yobe , North East ) , Bello Kofabai ( Katsina , North West ) , Prof . Shuaibu Oba Abdul Raheem ( Kwara , North Central ) .
