Ishaku Denies Victimisation Of Civil Servants In Taraba


Taraba State Governor, Arch Darius Ishaku has denied allegations by the Taraba State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that his administration is currently victimizing civil servants who voted for APC in the last general elections.

Ishaku, who spoke to journalists yesterday in Jalingo through his senior special adviser on media and publicity, Mr. Slyvanus Giwa said no civil servant in Taraba is victimised by virtue of his or her affiliations with any political party in the state.
“Although the law does not permit civil servants to be partisan and belong to political parties, but any civil servant working for Taraba State Government who has evidence should prove otherwise,” he said.
He explained that what the APC claimed that civil servants were being victimized are politics of religion, ethnicity and divisive sentiments.
Ishaku said the APC is making  a huge mistake, stressing that government has been resolutely liberal, embracing and accommodating all classes of people and creating no division in any way.
He added that in claiming that there is blanket restriction of movement of people into the state against their constitutional rights, the APC has misconstrued the good intentions of government.
According to the governor, any responsible government will do all it can to protect and preserve lives and property of its citizens.
“This is a critical time that Taraba is struggling to overcome internal security challenges occasioned by attacks from faceless armed groups on innocent people.‎
