Taraba Governor, Arch. Darius Dickson Ishaku has assured the people of the state that he will achieve peace in Taraba State.
The Governor gave the assurance when the Tiv peace committee paid him a thank you visit in his office in Jalingo.
Ishaku said his administration was doing everything possible to ensure that permanent peace is restored in the state.
“I am glad you have come to thank me. The act of appreciation is Biblical and it’s good to commend leaders when they do good.
“I will keep telling people to give me peace and I will give them development.
“I have done a lot and I have plans for the state but that can only happen when there is peace. Without peace, all the awards I have received will be useless.
“I won the water man 2018 and even few weeks ago I had a visual meeting with USAID on how to improve water supply in Taraba. But without peace, we can not achieve anything,” he said.
Earlier, Mrs. Bridget Twar thanked the Governor for approving resources for the evaluation of Tiv IDPs who were trapped in Kurmi.
Twar who led the Tiv peace committee to appreciate the Governor also called for more assistance to the IDPs
