Taraba State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Barr. Danjuma Adamu on Wednesday said Governor Darius Ishaku was not relenting about the security of the people of the State.

At a press briefing in Jalingo, Adamu said contrary to the campaign of calumny against the Governor, accusing him of failing to protect the people of Southern Taraba, the Governor has been working tirelessly for the peace of the area and the State in general.

Adamu said the report on the social media by some faceless group was aimed at undermining the good efforts of the Governor who has been working tirelessly to maintain peace and enhance development in the State.

The Commissioner said the report titled; ‘The rise of Tiv hooliganism in southern Taraba and Governor Darius leadership failure,’ was nothing, but a campaign being prosecuted by a desperate group targeting the Governor’s rising political profile.

He explained that since assuming office in 2015, Ishaku and his Benue counterpart have been meeting and various committees put in place to find a lasting solution to the crisis.

“Governor Ishaku never relented in his efforts to bring the crisis situation to an end and through his efforts hostilities ceased by September, 2019.

“The faceless writer accused the Governor of destroying the state and taking actions against the traditional institutions by failing to name the new Gara of Donga.

“The oath of office the Governor swore was not as a Jukun Governor, but the Governor of Taraba State to promote peace, progress, harmonious co-existence and cultural upliftment of the people of Taraba as a whole,”he said.
