Warns fifth columnists to desist from further campaign of calumny

Says ABU has verified Chair’s MBA certificate

A foremost coalition of civil society organizations in Nigeria, Integrated Rights Practitioners IRP, has on Thursday, passed a vote of confidence on the Chairperson of the Federal Character Commission, Dr. Muheeba Dankaka while urging what it termed the fifth columnists to desist from all campaign of calumny on her person.

In a press statement signed and made available to newsmen by its secretary, Comrade Victor Itsede, the coalition disclosed that it has decided to wield into the ongoing attempt by shadow parties within the federal character commission to denigrate the executive chairman by sponsoring protest against her over the unfounded report that she acquired a fake MBA certificate which has in publications made on national dailes been refuted by the management of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU).

The statement read: “The antics of some fifth columnist to use the civil society organizations to score political points is been investigated by the committee of civil society and this practice must stop. Those who are trying to bring the FCC chairman, down should search elsewhere because the CSOs will no longer be available for such sinister motives against a committed public steward like Muheeba Dankaka of the Federal Character Commission.

“We emphatically state that there should be an end to all these wild goose chase of shadow parties and their co-travellers, and their perilous manner of tarnishing the hard-earned reputation of not only the Commission, but that of Dr Muheeba Dankaka. We by the virtue of this statement, therefore pass a vote of confidence on Dr Dankaka’s sterling leadership of the FCC and kindly advise that she should be allowed to concentrate on her job and not be distracted by any person or authority, as we have discovered that these detractors and unscrupulous elements are only out to milk the chairperson.

“We are privy to the number of issues that has been raised, unsubstantial fabricated informations and plans to vacate Dr. Muheeba Dankaka from her position. Infact the Chairperson and FCC has been on media trial for the past months due to a large dose of unhealthy, bias statements and mischievous fallacies dished to the public. We are advocating for peaceful administration of the FCC in line with the extant laws so that the nation can benefit from the execution of the mandate of the commission.

“PLEASE NOTE that on a publication by Dailypost on Tuesday, 23, 2024 “ABU stated that “We accept full responsibility for both letters, but i wish to let you know that the earlier one denying the FCC Chair’s MBA, was written in error and did not follow the die process of verification. When we realised the error, we carried out proper verification and discovered that she was indeed awarded the MBA degree certificate, hence the second letter to correct the error” . We implore the petitioners and their sponsors to desist from further irrelevant campaign against Dr. Muheeba Dankaka and the commission.” It added.
