Taraba state Governor on Sunday said his administration had completed 700 boreholes and two hospitals located at Bambur, Karim Lamido and Gembu, Sardauna Local Government Areas.

Governor Ishaku said this while addressing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) supporters at a reception organised in his honor at Rimi Primary School, Tukum.

He said apart from the health and water sectors, his administration had turned around the education, agricultural and social sectors, to improve the living conditions of our people and added that the rehabilitation of Takum General Hospital made it possible for the hospital to provide quality service to the urban town and her surrounding communities.

The Governor was received by a mammoth crowd, some of whom climbed trees to have a glimpse of him.

Many communities in the area would soon enjoy uninterrupted power supply courtesy of the soon to be commissioned 40MW electricity dam project in Kashimbila, Takum LGA.

Others to enjoy this also are Donga, Ussa, Wukari, Ibi Local Government Areas and the Yangtu Special Development Area.

“We will liaise with relevant federal authorities and the World Bank to improve irrigation activities and water supply to the rural communities since Kashimbila project is a multi purpose one,” said the governor.

Ishaku, who was in Takum to vote in the upcoming Local Government Council Election scheduled for June 30, called on the people of the area to conduct themselves peacefully as they elect candidates of their choice.

Traditional dances and other cultural displays added colour to the event.
