His Excellency, Arch. Darius Dickson Ishaku @65
Taraba State Governor, Arc. Darius Dickson Ishaku turns 65 years old today (July 30). He was born on July 30th 1954, in Lupwe in present day Ussa Local Government Area of Taraba State.
Governor Ishaku has, however, said there will be no special events to mark the anniversary of his birth.
He has rather decided that the day will be devoted to prayers for peace and an end to communal clashes, killings, kidnapping and other forms of crimes that are threatening peace and safety of lives and properties in the state.
Governor Ishaku thanked Tarabans for their support during the events leading to his re-election and inauguration as Governor for a second term and promised to deliver more dividends of democracy before the end of his present tenure.
He urged the people to join him in praying for peace in the state so that the development agenda of his administration will be achieved in full at the end of his tenure as governor of Taraba State.

Hon. Mamman receiving the award on behalf of the governor at the ECWA Headquarters, Jos – Plateau state.
Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku has been honoured with a distinguished service award by ECWA TV. This took place during the weekend at the ECWA headquarters Jos Plateau state where he and his counterpart, Governor of Plateau State, His Excellency Simon Bako Lalong and other notable sons and daughters were recognized.
The Governor was represented by his personal aide Hon. Musa Mamman.
While speaking, the governor appreciated the ECWA family for finding him worthy among millions to be honored.
“It is indeed an honor to be recognized by God Almighty for doing His will”.
Governor Ishaku, however, pleaded with them for more prayers for God’s will to continue prevailing over that of men, because without prayers, nothing can be made possible and the peace which everyone so much cherishes would be far fetched.
The President of ECWA speaking at the occasion said the governor has not only been so supportive towards the work of God, but has also stood for his people regardless of the threats, intimidation and danger to his life.
He said Governor Ishaku has chosen the right path in standing firm, denying himself all the benefit he would have personally enjoyed if he were to compromise his stand in defense of the good people of Taraba.
The President said His Excellency, Arch. Darius Ishaku, is a good shepherd who lays down his life for his sheep and not a hireling who throws away his sheep when he sees the wolf coming because they are not his.
He described Governor Ishaku as a “Great Lion” who fears not and quoted the great general Napoleon who said, “I am never afraid of Lions that are led by a sheep, but I am afraid of sheep that are led by a Lion.”
He urged the Governor to keep leading his people because God Almighty is with him and prayed that God would bless him real good.
Kaith Kaina Ishaku, Younger Sister to Governor Darius Ishaku has tied the nuptial knot with her heart-throb Emmanuel John Molokwu.
The Wedding Solemnization took place at the Father’s Delight International Ministry Rayfield, Jos, Plateau State.
The officiating minister, Joshua Tende in his Sermon itemized three important ideologies that people especially couples must follow in life.
He advised couples to always make sure that they marry on the premise of the Holy Spirit as that would put them to meet God’s given vision in store for them.
The Clergy stressed that receiving the Holy Spirit was not only by speaking in tongues but receiving his eminent direction on what to do as a family.
Tende, who posited that change remained inevitable despite disbelief and resistance from people said that God was ever ready to forgive anyone who decides to change for good.
The ceremony featured presentation of the bride Kaith Ishaku to the groom’s family by Governor Darius Ishaku, Special prayers for peace in Taraba State and God’s wisdom to be bestowed on the Governor and his entire cabinet.
