The governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress in Taraba State, Sen. Emmanuel Bwacha, has accused Governor Darius Ishaku’s led administration of ruining the state and has taken the state backward on several fronts.
Bwacha stated that his desire to be governor of Taraba was to restore the state’s lost glory.
On Wednesday, he lamented that the state was on the precipice and needed to be saved from collapse.
“This is not the Taraba we know. We didn’t start like this and we can not continue like this.
“Imagine you are in a Keke Napep, just to discover that the rider is a Special Adviser to the governor of Taraba State. This goes to define how poverty has overwhelmed the state and its citizens.
“I was also a player when the first civilian government came on board in Taraba in 1992. We wanted to promote governance and take development to the people, but all that has been destroyed by the rumour-milling industry we have in the State today.
“I have been told from the position of authority that even the few developed infrastructure are on the point of being sold and the money taken by an individual because of his share greed for primitive accumulation of wealth and we will do everything possible to stop that and restore confidence in the people and build a better Taraba,” he said.
