Other than the previous administrations of former Rev. Jolly Nyame, and late former governor Danbaba D. Suntai, whom he gave credit, the incumbent administration beneath the management of Arc. Darius Dickson Ishaku, in his view, has continued to pull the hand of the clocks backwards.

In accordance with him “we had governor Jolly Nyame who did very nicely throughout his eight years. He constructed hospitals, the stadium, Taraba Motel and a number of different tasks. ”

Late governor Suntai, he stated, “constructed roads thereby opening the state up for improvement. He constructed the college, the airport, and a number of different tasks that we take a look at and there was a normal consider that although issues weren’t as they need to have been, we have been making progress steadily.”

The reverse, he noticed was, nonetheless, the case with the approaching of this current administration which he believed has “failed woefully.”

Questioning why the incumbent state authorities has “failed” to enhance on the achievements of the aforementioned administrations, he stated “sadly the final six years or so have been a serious catastrophe for the state.”

“The worst factor that has occurred to the state in the previous few years is the whole polarization and division of the state alongside ethnic and non secular strains. Sure, we now have lots of ethnic teams within the state, most likely greater than anyplace else within the nation. However these have been by no means a difficulty till very lately. Now all the pieces is on the premise of faith and ethnicity.”

“We now have authorities with out governance within the state. Ministries are operating with out operating prices. In actual fact, aside from the state owned radio and tv stations, I doubt if there may be any ministry or company that will get operating prices.

“We’re not the place we’re speculated to be. If solely this authorities was capable of construct on the inspiration laid by the final two governments, we might have gone far. As a substitute, we now have gone badly backwards.”
