In the tumultuous political landscape of Zamfara State, Governor Dauda Lawal stands resolute, undeterred by the sustained campaign of calumny orchestrated by his detractors and enemies of Zamfara seeking to undermine the progress of the state.
In this short article, I try to delve into the narrative of a political figure- Dr Dauda Lawal Gamjin Gusau, the Governor of Zamfara state who, despite facing numerous trials in his political journey emerges victorious, embodying the strength of resilience against relentless adversaries.
Governor Lawal, a political phoenix, rises above the ashes of baseless allegations and legal hurdles.
Undeterred by the cacophony of false claims spread by the gullible, Governor Dauda Lawal remains focused on delivering good governance to the people of Zamfara state.
A closer instance for reference is the current Urban renewal project which breathes hope to everyone in Zamfara.
Down the memory lane In the journey from his primary election victory to assuming office on May 29, 2023, Governor Dauda Lawal the rescue commander of modern Zamfara state faced a barrage of legal battles unnecessarily initiated by some unpopular and out-dated politicians.
Like a seasoned warrior, Governor Dauda Lawal navigated through the traps, the political windstorm and hurdles with an unwavering spirit of a courageous lion.
As soon as he was sworn in on May 29, 2023, our amiable Governor faced all the inherited challenges with dexterity and vigour. His achievements are too numerous to mention and I will keep till my next post.
Meanwhile, the bottom line in this article is to point out the unfaithful manners in which same detractors ignore all religious injunctions which promote the ideals of accepting the will and decree of our Creator who entrusted the leadership of Zamfara state in 2023 into the hands of Dauda Lawal who seems to be our Governor because Almighty Allah has a purpose for that.
Yet, his detractors didn’t give up! With their heart full of fear, anguish and evil plans against the innocent Dauda Lawal who dedicates his time, freedom and comfort to building a state that was previously shattered, batterd and scattered by the same creed of egocentric politicians who challenged his victory again and again and got the judgement they seem to have influenced in the most untoward manner.
Their illogical prayer to the court was to allow them smuggle in about 98,000 votes they manufactured from Maradun local Government. What a very hillarious mediocrity? They will fail in the battle ahead.
Recall how the court of Appeal in Sokoto, a bastion of justice, reaffirmed his victory, setting the stage for the 2023 General Election, where the people of Zamfara unequivocally placed their trust in Governor Lawal whose simple but working formula is “Da ikon Allah” all positive things are possible and Zamfara shall live again.
In the face of inherited challenges, Governor Lawal displayed dexterity and vigor, tackling issues head-on with a commitment to the well-being of the state.
His achievements, too numerous to mention, serve as a testament to his dedication and leadership prowess.
Despite these triumphs, Governor Lawal continues to face relentless attacks from detractors enemies of Zamfara state who, having failed in legal battles, resort to malicious tactics and campaign of Culumny as the only weapon at their disposal.
The recent cynical attempt to link him to the corruption allegations against the former minister Diezani Alison Maduake is a desperate move by those who refuse to accept defeat.
In the words of an ancient proverb, “The more they come closer to Governor Dauda Lawal, the farther they see him”
Governor Dauda Lawal remains steadfast, and unyielding against the machinations of his adversaries.
The Supreme Court’s judgment has since cleared him of any connection to the corruption case which is a vindication of his innocence.
As the enemies of progress attempt to smear his reputation with fake news and campaign of calumny, Governor Lawal stands tall, echoing the resilience captured in the adage: “Wasa wuka bai kada gaban doki.
The EFCC has removed the fake news from their page while the former Minister Alison-Madueke has publically denied granting any interview indicting Governor Dauda Lawal. Alison spoke to premium times in London where she described the story as ‘fake’ and ‘concocted’
This one has hit the rock as usual, just like the previously multifaceted and multidimensional act of cruelty against Governor Dauda Lawal the rescue commander of modern Zamfara state.
We know they will come up with another evil plot but they are always bound to fail as the Man with goodwill fear of Allah cannot be deterred no matter the evil plot against him by the enemies of our progress.
In conclusion, Governor Dauda Lawal’s story is one of triumph over adversity, a testimony to the power of resilience in the face of political onslaughts.
As the people of Zamfara await the judgment of the Supreme Court, they do so with confidence, knowing that the man with goodwill cannot be deterred by the baseless plots of his adversaries.
