Gov. Ishaku together with the contractor during his inspection tour at one of the road construction site in Yorro LGA.
Speaking shortly after inspecting the road, the Governor said he will ensure timely release of funds to ensure that the contractor deliver on the project timeline.
According to him, the project was slightly delayed because of issues relating to fluctuations in the prices of project materials and assured that government will beep up payment to the contractor.
The Governor charged the contractor to put in more efforts to ensure that the project is completed on schedule.
Also speaking, the Contractor assured the Governor that the project will be completed in 2021, even as he assured of the delivery of quality job.
The Chief of Yorro, Alhaji Ado Manzan in his remarks thanked the Governor for approving funds for the project and said the major bridge on the road would be named DDI bridge as a mark of honour for the Governor.
Our correspondent reports that the Governor was accompanied on the trip by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Hon. Anthony Jellason and other top government officials.
The social media was on Friday November 29, 2019 inundated with reactions to a certain unsigned fake news story containing essentially rumours of a purported impeachment plot against principal officers of the Taraba State House of Assembly including the Speaker, Abel Peter Diah.
This was contained in a press statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity, Mr. Bala Abu.
The said article made spurious claims to the effect that Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku was the sponsor of that so-called impeachment plot and that he had committed N200 million public funds to it.
Nothing can be more untrue.
Mr. Abu said that this is yet another wicked and malicious attempt to cause confusion and conflict in the relationship between the executive and legislative arms of government in Taraba State on the one hand and Governor Ishaku and Peter Diah, his political god-son, on the other.
Both men have had several years of fruitful personal and official relationships nurtured by mutual trust, cooperation and collaboration.
Mr. Abu said that the Governor will never sponsor and did not sponsor the so-called impeachment move, if indeed there was any such move by the Honourable members, let alone fund it with such a staggering amount of money from the public purse.
He stated clearly that the allegations are ridiculous, absolutely false and malicious. It is certainly for these reasons that the author of the article failed to sign it.
Governor Ishaku wants the general public to ignore this article and the lies contained in it.
Governor Ishaku is an apostle of peace and will not do anything that will rock the existing level of trust and understanding between him and members of the state House of Assembly.
