Taraba State governor Darius Ishaku
Alhaji Abubakar Bawa, the Special Adviser on Political Matters to Taraba State Governor Darius Ishaku, has voiced his displeasure with the state chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Barr. Ibrahim El-Sudi, for labelling Governor Darius Ishaku a liar.
Bawa expressed his disgust in a press conference with journalists in Jalingo, in response to a press conference by the APC State Chairman, Barrister Ibrahim El-Sudi, who accused the Governor of lying about his successes in the state.
Governor Darius Ishaku's imprints of projects and successes could be seen in all 168 wards of the State, according to the Special Adviser, who challenged the APC Chairman to examine the state's progress in health, education, agriculture, water, and urban regeneration.

“Ordinarily, I wouldn’t have reacted to the claim by Abuja based politicians who have lost touch with home, regarding their accusation that Governor Darius Ishaku lied on national television over his achievements in the State.“El-Suldi and most of APC leaders in Taraba are Abuja politicians who only come home during elections and as such, they have lost touch of development at home. In fact, most of them have not visited their electoral wards in the past two years.“In El-Suldi’s village in Gashaka Local Government, Governor Darius Ishaku had renovated the healthcare centre there and is one of the State’s best primary health care centres.
“There is no electoral ward in Taraba today that has not benefitted from the Governor’s intervention either through road construction, water, education and health among others.
“The Governor was given the award of Water Man of the year 2018 and was recently given an award for improving the education sector. These awards speak for themselves,” he said.
While urging the public to ignore the APC's verbal attacks on Governor Ishaku, Alhaji Abubakar Bawa assured the people of the state that the governor's administration will not be deterred by the attacks and will ensure that all ongoing projects in the state are completed before the end of the governor's term.
