A middle aged man Ismail Abdullahi Shabege early Friday mounted a 400 feet transmitter of Famers radio station , an affiliate of Kano state radio corporation calling for the resignation of Chairman of Nigeria Governors Forum and Zamfara State , Alhaji Abdulaziz Yari or he will not descend from the mast.
Ismail Abdullahi Shabege an indigene of Zamfara state and resident in Kano said in a letter he dropped before climbing the mast said the increasing unemployment rate among the youth in the country and unfulfilled promises by political leaders are some of his reasons for embarking on the suicide act .
The middle aged man who is also a popular local musician in the north and the former national Chairman ,All Progressive Congress ( APC ) Singers , demanded the federal government to provide employment to 10,000 gifted and talented youth as a panacea to increasing crime rate.
He noted that Gov. AbdulAziz Yari has to pay him compensation for putting him and his family in economic quagmire as he was the leading singer that assisted him to win 2015 governorship election without being compensated after several promises.
However after vowing to stay put at the top edge of the mast if President Muhammadu Buhari himself did not appeal to him to come down from the mast , three Personnel of Kano state fire service had to climb the mast appealing to him and assuring that his demands would be addressed.
The managing Director of Kano state Radio Corporation Umar Sa’du Tudunwada had to join in the appeal for the youngster to descend from the mast.
He subsequently acceded to their appeal and descended from the mast and was later whisked away by men of the Department of State Security.
