Governor Darius Ishaku has advised Tarabans to cultivate and show behaviours that would impact positively on the lives of other people.
The Governor gave the admonition during the funeral service of late Liatu Adamu Rika at the United Methodist Church Nukkai, Jalingo.

The Governor charged the congregation to pray fervently for the state and country amid reckless killings going on without recourse from designated authority.
In his sermon, Reverend Abainatus Akila frowned at the way many people allow earthly pleasures and desires to keep them away from God advising them to change their lifestyle.

Commenting, Chairman of the Taraba state Independent Electoral Commission Philip Duwe, a stepson of the deceased who spoke on behalf of the family thanked Members of the church and sympathizers who stood by them in their moment of grief.
It would be recalled that late Mama Liatu Rika died on October 5, 2018 along Bali, Garba Chede road in a fatal car crash at the age of eighty one.
Her remains was committed to mother earth at the church Premises.
Executive Secretary, Taraba State Post Primary Education Board, Mr. David Mailafiya
Executive Secretary of the Taraba State Post Primary Education Board, Mr. David Mailafiya has affirmed that Governor Darius Ishaku deserves another shot at the Government House considering his remarkable reforms in the academic sector of the State.
Mr. Mailafiya stated that the education sector has received massive boost from the State Government hence the giant strides it had made since His Excellency came to office.
He made the disclosure recently in Jalingo during an interactive session with journalists stressing that the Governor deserves praise for his innovative work in education and taking Taraba to a new level in the committee of states in the country.
“I must confess that we have never had it so good in this sector. We were nowhere near the level we have attained before His Excellency came on board. But within the last few years we have come to be among states that can boast of massive reforms and support from their Governor.
“It is indeed a thing of joy and our Governor deserves another shot at the Government house to enable him consolidate on the gains so far. He probably must have conceived it in his heart before he became our governor. What he has done is quite unprecedented and I believe this is just a tip of the iceberg”.
He revealed that the recruitment of teachers by the government and the capacity building programme initiatives put in place has yielded dividends.
“ We have covered a lot of grounds from the inputs of government. Recruitment of teachers and training programs organized for them is highly commendable. We will not rest but continue to keep the burner ablaze and make sure we keep up the highest standards of quality teaching in our schools. Remember that an educated society is an informed society” he stressed.
