Director of Administration Government House, Mr. Yaboro Irimiya Ibrahim has described the developmental strides of Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku in his two years of his administration as gradual but clear.
Mr. Ibrahim while commenting on the two years of the administration, stated “it is visible from a very clear perspective that every sector of the economy has been affected by the Governor’s organised system of Governance. The transformation is gradual, but very clear signs are there, and let me assure you that good times lies ahead for Taraba”.
According to him, Governor Ishaku is a people’s Governor and a man of his words who has proven to Tarabans that he is here to serve them and nothing else.
Speaking on the negative criticism from different quarters of the State, Mr. Ibrahim while urging fellow Tarabans to be objective in their criticism stated that, “Governor Ishaku is one of the Governors who has been committed to paying staff salaries, and mind you he has only been officially in office for about twelve to thirteen months due to court cases and litigations.
He added that “to be fair to his person Tarabans should assess him from this period and see if he will not surpass their expectations.
“I believe so much that, there is high expectation from the electorate, but they should be rest assured that if he can achieve this little in only about twelve to thirteen months, then there is more he can do and build upon in the next two years.
“Our people should be patient. For those criticising the Government, they are the narrow minded folks. They should be objective because none of their criticisms will divert the focused approach of the Governor, because he is committed to delivering the dividends of democracy to Taraba and Tarabans”, he concluded.
On the projects the administration has executed so far, the Director stated that, “despite the lean resources in the State coffers and the IGR which is at it’s lowest, the education, Agric, Works, Water, Road network, Power and other sectors of the economy have seen intervention from the Government.”
He was optimistic that, Governor Ishaku will build on these in the next two years and the people of Taraba will affirm that he has lived up to expectations and deserves another mandate from 2019 to 2023.
