APC governorship candidate decries spate of underdevelopment in Taraba
Alhaji Sani Danladi, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Taraba, says the state has yet to experience meaningful development since it was created in 1991.
Danladi said this on Thursday while receiving no fewer than 4,000 defectors from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and United Democratic Party (UDP) to the APC in Gassol Local Government Area of the state.
He said that Taraba was richly endowed with abundant human and material resources waiting to be harnessed for the overall development of the state.
He said that the state had huge potential in tourism, water resources, tea and coffee growing and animal husbandry.
He said that an APC administration would provide quality education, better health care and a revolution in agriculture, if voted into power.
Danladi, who is a former deputy and acting governor of Taraba, said that he had the experience and political will to transform the state. He welcomed the new members and assured them of equal recognition with older members of the party.
He urged the electorate to vote massively for the APC candidates in all the elections in the state.
Earlier, the spokesman of the defectors, Alhaji Njidda Maigari, said they decided to move to APC because “we have seen light at the end of the tunnel.” Maigari promised that they would work hard for APC’s victory at all levels during the general elections. (NAN)
