Why I Was Absent At Danjuma’s Turbaning Ceremony – UTC

The acting governor of Taraba State, Alhaji Garba Umar has denied media report  that he was deliberately absent during the turbaning ceremony of former defence minister, Lt. General T. Y. Danjuma over the weekend at Donga in the state.

Umar, who spoke to LEADERSHIP through his chief press secretary, Mr Kefas Sule yesterday in Jalingo said that the acting governor was earlier invited to commission some projects in Bauchi State before he received the invitation of the turbaning ceremony.
Kefas said that the acting governor deemed it imperative to attend the commissioning ceremony at Bauchi because he had earlier promised that he was going to be part of the commissioning.
“The acting governor went to Bauchi State because a street in Bauchi was to be named after him,” he said.

Kefas, further said that he was not aware of any sore relationship between the acting governor and the war veteran, General Danjuma.

“I don’t know if Lt. General T.Y. Danjuma has resolved not to recognise Alhaji Garba Umar as the acting governor of the state, I am just hearing that,” he added
