I’m on mission to rescue Taraba – Gov. Ishaku

The newly inaugurated governor of Taraba State, Darius Dickson Ishaku yesterday said he is on a mission to rescue the state from the strangleholds of socio-economic and infrastructural backwardness as well as other problems bedevilling the state.
Ishaku, who gave the assurance in his inaugural address shortly after been sworn-in by the Taraba state Chief Judge, Justice Josephine Tuktur, urged people of the state to cooperate with his administration to enable him succeed.
He said his administration will give attention to harnessing the abundant potential in agriculture, commerce and tourism, just as he promised to improve on healthcare services, environmental sanitation, education, water supply and provisions of employments for the people, amongst others.
He said the task of governance ahead of him would be enormous and daunting in view of the dire financial situation of the state, but expressed confidence in surmounting the challenges with cooperation of the people.
“I see a reality of an indebted state, I see a reality of low level of education; I see a reality of unemployment; with all these looming crises, a lot of sacrifices will be done in the days ahead. We may not begin to see result immediately but we shall and must triumph,” he said.
The inauguration was attended by dignitaries including former Minister of Defence, Theophilus Danjuma, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha and former minister of labour, Joel Ikenya, among others.‎
